First Ride on 2003 CRF 450


Recommended Posts

I finally rode my new bike this past weekend Oct 12-13 & I have to say that this bike absolutely ROCKS! I bought it back at the end of August but just now have had the opportunity to ride it. My previous bike was a 1999 CR 250 & I have no regrets going from a 2-stroke to 4. The only complaint I had was trying to start it after stalling it & I think that was more my fault than the bike as I'm pretty sure I was cracking the throttle slightly as I was trying to kick it over (yes, I was using the hot start) old 2 stroke habbits die hard. It did start on the first kick every time before each practice though. So anybody interested in a 99 CR250?

No way i could have waited 6 weeks to ride mine, you're a stronger man than I. I also made the switch from an '01 CR250 about 3 weeks and I have to say I agree, the bike rocks. Oh well enjoy it, and I hope you get to ride it more often. 🙂

Yeah, how you do that? I'm not much better off! I just got my CRF450 yesterday and I probably won't ride for week or so. I crashed my 426 Saturday on a triple...result: my penis is blue and swollen (never had that happen before, but it looks pretty cool and the wife likes the swollen part...LOL); I think I have a chipped/bent/out-of-joint ? hip and/or pelvis bone; my whole right side is black and blue; my left leg (inside) was eat up by the back tire; my right elbow and arm is skinless! however, I was able to hobble into the Honda dealer to buy the 450, although I could not load nor test ride it. MAN, I HAVE IT BAD to be 40 years old!

I got my bike two weeks ago and 30 min after signing the papers I was breaking it in. Since then I have found every excuse possible to go ride. This bike is so much fun. I went to the dealer with my gear in the truck. (wife thought I was just going for a ride) Smoking was easy to give up. 🙂
