I have been to the Yamaha dealers here in Abu Dhabi, and I'm not impressed. Would I have better luck in Dubai?

We call the local dealer here in Dubai "Al Useless" (Al Yousef))...they also do Suzuki. Erratic supplies and zero service. Why not look at the Honda CRF250X? You can lower the bike by shortening the pro-link and chopping down the seat...
