I am in the running to get a new bike & the WR450 seems to tick all the boxes. I rode a mates 04 & it glided over everything & made life real easy for me, Seeing that my current bike is a XR650R these bikes are worlds apart for what i do. I still want the option to take my new bike to the motocross track but I must admit this will be rare & only for fun, I felt my friends bike handled more like a crosser which I really liked. I mostly ride fairly fast trails but there are some tight muddy bits too. I have seen some 07 bikes go cheap but still alot dearer than a 04 or 05. At the age of 39 I know now I never going to be the next David knight but would I benifit getting an 07 ?
