I have always been a BIG yamaha fan. Recently, I let a buddy of mine talk me into getting an 04 Husqvarna TC450. The bike ROCKS. With all due respect to everyone here, I beat reds and blues to shame. But I miss the ease of getting parts and after hearing horror stories of the husky dropping valves well, I miss you blue.....please forgive the prodigal rider....... SO, What bike, What year, Why? I am the father of two and in college still so I can't rush right out to get the lastest and greatest. Keeping the bill around $3k-$4k. Also I'd like to stick with the big four strokes. I really appreciate any advice in making my decision.
