So I told my wife about this new wealth of info called Thumpertalk (she didn't care at all). I also told her I needed a buddy bike like a guy named Yamakaze (she didn't think the name was as cool as I did either). ANyway, I told her I could make my bike now a buddy bike (just like kaze's) and get a new 450, or even a 426 if I had to. SO I thought it was a great idea-she informed I'll keep riding my 400, have no buddy bike, and LOVE it!!! She just doesn't get it...sheesh!!!!
