Recommended Posts

I haven't either, but I've been watching supercross from the couch, and it all looks pretttttty easy.  I don't know why I haven't been going fast up til this point.

 

My belly is very round from inactivity over the long winter, I feel ready!

:cool:

I got to try the new 450, it was pretty sweet.  I want one, but I forgot how much time a guy puts in to putting new parts on a bike, adjusting everything, getting the suspension the way he wants it...

My bike worked just freakin' sweet, the rider a bit rusty, and out of shape; but I felt like I was riding a crotch rocket out there with knobbies.  It leaned into corners nicely, the front end stayed where I put it, it was wonderful.  The new 450 was a bit "deflecty" still, a bit stiff from being brand new I reckon.  If it were mine I'd have to soften the heck out of it, but that's just preference.

The 450 turns great and the power was amazing, controllable and awesome.

 

It was a great weekend to ride, but I feel like I got hit by a bus... very sore from sitting on my butt for six months.

I only saw one new Honda and it was in the back of a black f150 leaving for the day.  I'm really sore today still, but definitely worth it, nice day and nice to fling dirt again.
