I am cranked up on pain meds and just off acl reconstruction 5 days ago. Swelling not down yet and I am bummed. I have a sweet ride see my garage. I want a 450 for next year just to have 2 bikes. All my stuff is honda so no need to buy anything as I have wheels, chains , sprockes, scotts dampener set ups, ect. even extra suspension! I was going to pick up an 06 crf as I see the motor is way lower in the show room and it feels sitting on it just like my crf250. I sold my 04 crf450 to a buddy a year ago. Now the grass is starting to look greener and yellower even bluer! Just tell me to shut up and stick with Honda as Hype is Hype. I have been all in and out of my bikes so no learning curve. Just PM me or post something. Your all I have as I lay in Bed alone with nothing on TV and it hurts too much to play videos. I am a 42yr old dentist so I need someone to say stick with honda and you will not regret it!
