I've got the SM version of this bike and its the biggest load of shit I have ever owned; I hardly ever ride the thing, prefer my XT 600 hands down.

I'll take it off your hands??? but seriously, why don't you like it? other guys love it, so i'm interested in what it is about you dislike so much?
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?
