Hey guys, I started a thread about a Wr 450 in the crate, and received several great responses regarding a good deal on '03 versus just getting an '05. First of, thanks for all the input! You guys were real helpful and I look forward to posting in this forum once I have my hands on my 2005 WR 450! 2 reasons I am going with the '05; 1). After all I have read here, the '05 has some nice upgrades. 2). My bonus check was a little bigger than I expected, so I am going to spoil myself. I have never owned a new dirtbike, I have always bought used. It's about time! Once again thanks for all the help, and I will update my garage as soon as I have my hands on the WR. (gotta change my Avatar to... ) That should be within the next few weeks!
