    Skill level, and speed, would determine the differences. Pro level guys can pick out the damndest things. Whereas most C riders wouldn’t use enough of the bike to denote a whole lot of differences, unless they were really glaring. We just don’t have that like we did 20 years ago, though.

    A typical rider could easily find differences in 3, maybe 4, of those bikes, but probably not all 6.

    However, at the end of the day a good suspension and tuner guy can get that RM-Z pretty damn close to the Yamaha and Honda. Close enough to go damn fast on and beat ‘em both. So it’s still pick your features, deal, and dealer.

    Well, I'll be That Guy. Brosef in the video is getting out there in putting in the work and seat time to have fun and get better. Even though some of the stuff he was worried about riding looked like something many of us wouldn't think twice about ( or would search out for fun) he went ahead and tried to ride it and gain some experience anyway.

    Props to him.

    that everideadv YouTube guy did a review on gpx, I watched it and he was definitely in the thread on here. He’s from Utah. Do you know what his alias is on here? Or at least one of them?

    I started riding at about 13 and am now 39. Feels like my "skill set" is degrading rather than improving :lol3

    Ashley is probably faster than that on tougher trail. It’s close though

    I bet most people could tell some pretty big differences. Especially between the top two and the bottom one.

    Well you at least have some excuses. It was damp out so traction wasn't great. While not a super duper tough hill it's hard enough to make you feel silly if your not on your game. The next hill after it is a little easier but the third section is damned tough.

    All I know is it's slim-to-none I'll be swinging a leg over any of them.
