I am new to dirt bike riding and just bought a used 2006 kx450f and the only riding I have done so far is around the block and when I bought it. I have been riding sport bikes for about 10 years and have been doing track days for the last two years. Have had 600,750, and 1000cc bikes and currently have a 2009 zx6r by the way. I love the power of this kx it reminds me of my 2003 r1 liter bike as it really pulls that hard from idle. Can't wait to get it out off road. My original plan was to wait till spring but don't think I can wait that long. I live in the Northern, VA area so not too many places close by to ride as I will have to trailer the bike about 1.5 hours away to get it out. Anyways just came across this forum and will be in here from time-to-time looking for advice and such.
