Greetings Everyone- I finally pulled the trigger on brand spanking new 04 YZ450F. I got her off of the internet for a song and a dance from a fantastic dealership in Wisconson. The first bike I had was an old bubble tank Honda 50 with the fold down handlebars when I was in Kindergarden, then a 1977 XR 75, then a plethora of hopped-up Vespa's, now I'll soon have a bike with a sack full of balls, hopefully by mid-week next week. I was torn between colors, namely blue and red, but given the pandemonium regarding the valves on the other bike, and the flawless operation and minimal maintenance requirements of my Yamaha outboard motors, I chose Blue!! Can't wait to get her. Now I have to find some riding buddies in and around the Baton Rouge area. I grew up riding trails, but I bet some track work would be a hoot. On another note, I am the Loctite factory rep for Louisiana. Any questions you might have regarding Threadlocker's, Thread Sealing, Gasketing, Premature Bearing failure's, or just glueing broken parts back together, ask me. I'm here to help as are many other thread members. Cheers Everyone!
