Just doing my part...

I went to Arizona a couple of weeks ago to look at a house in Fountain Hills (just a little north east of Scottsdale) and on the way home I stopped by Apache Motorcycles in Phoenix and decided to do my part and help out the AZ economy...you know, to counter act all the boycotters...and picked up an '09 YZ450F. New, out the door for $4758.00.... How could I resist! I'm going to build a Supermoto bike with this one. I'll post more pics when it's done.

I'm keeping the 150, in fact, I'm building some 17" wheels for it. That little thing is just stupid fun!

Thanks Jim. I was talking to the guys at Graves Motorsports and they feel the '09 is a better platform to build a Supermoto bike on.....that, and the price was right!

So I can be one state closer to you!

Actually Kristen, I've enjoyed the area (Scottsdale/Fountain Hills) for a very long time. I have a good friend who has a spare house in Fountain Hills and he can make me an unbelievable deal on it. If you want, PM me your email address and I'll send you some pictures of the house and surrounding area.

From what I've heard, I thought Scottsdale had more quality b*tches than Hell-A. What do I know, I only heard it through the apple tree.
