I do not want to add another brand and deal with another set of spares, etc. I like the GG chassis, just interested in a less intense bike I can push harder, which is more fun sometimes. For most enduros I'd still ride the 2-stroke, unless it was really slick. I think the '10 leftovers were just the 250/300s.

Seems that way. Well, I'll hold out hope for the unicorn to show up.

No unicorns, but a trio of 2010 250Fs made it onto the arc for its trans Atlantic crossing. Have your dealer contact Clay (or in the case of you guys without local dealers, give me a call) and get your reservation in ... quick!

The 2011 250F's (when they finally arrive), will they have the red frames like the 2 strokes? Only 2010 look bikes with black plastics and frames on the GG Spain web site so just wondering?

Color don't mean squat to me, I'm a function before form guy. My main must have is the Zoke forks, because I have my '07 working so good I can't wait to ride it again.

Its too early for me to make a move on an '10, likely I'll have to sell my Duc to afford one so a Feb date is OK if I decide to do so. Also have to pick up an 85 for my kid too bad no GG 85. It will come down to price and I also would like to compare it to the 125.

Clay, how many '11 250Fs and 125s are headed here?

Bought myself a 2010 GasGas EC250F last week.
My main purpose for the bike was to have a bike that is light on fuel to follow the wife around when we are out riding or doing the easy "Funduro's" she participates in.

That machine impressed me so much, i actually think I'm going to race it in the next GXCC (similar to GNCC in the states)

What a great bike.
Smooth and deceivingly fast.
Handling is just typical great GasGas maneuverability

Yes its not the fastest thing on the straights, but in the tight and twisties it is deadly.

What a machine!

Yep, I am just LOVING my 2010 EC250F. Very easy to ride, excellent in the tight, technical gnarly trails we have here and has never once seriously tried to launch me into a tree. Has more than enough power to do anything I want to try.

Best thing about it is the Yamaha motor means I can get parts anywhere.

I have raced mine (2014) hard for two years now, sporting a Rekluse Exp 3.0. It is however not easy on fuel doing this, a full tank of 8 l keeps me going for 2 hours. I have for this season opted for removing the Reklse and moved back to std clutch, to be able to pull it a bit lower down the revs. For the gnarly riding it is really good, all the power I need. For the grassy field type of venue, the 250f falls a bit short of power imo.

Took mine for a post-suspension setup test ride the weekend.
It performed exceptionally well everywhere.

We have a very deep sand section on one of our venues so i thought maybe there the 1/4 liter 4stroke would struggle a bit but no. It just flies over it.

I'm starting to love this bike proper!
