Sorry everyone. newbie here. I know you hear this daily....But I just joined. Had 01 YZ426 and loved it 3 years ago. got out of riding for awhile. Am now in market. Have found numerous 05 CRF450's for around 5k. Found 1-05 YZF450, ridden 10 times for $4600. I was leaning towards the honda JUST cause I want to be able to control my bike a little more, so every pound saved seems logical to me (Im 180 lbs.) The 426 was Awesome, but it took me where it wanted to go. I dont race, dont even ride that hard. I am so confused. I cant ride different colors to try them out. I live in small town. Some say a 05 YZF is to slow. So whats a man to do? 03, 04 or 05 YZF, or 05 CRF? HELP!!!
