I am just about decided on this bike. It is that or the CRF 450. I am not sure. Any one offer some advice. I am moving up form a DR350 that I bought new in 1993. I have done every mod to it and feel that any bike to replace it is a downgrade. However I have to face the fact that my bike is old and wearing out. So on to a new one. What are your comments on this bike? I sat on one and found the seat very stiff. I would definitly replace that. What else is there?
