I rode the 450 for a few minutes yesterday, Not too vibey from the short ride, power is comparable to my WR, seemed to flatten out up top before the WR. Then again I had been riding a 250f all day.

One word for a big thumper: Rekluse!

My hands/arms are junked from splitting wood so I went hiking today, got in a solid 12 miles. Would have rather been on the GG.
I love it! Let's just say that my expectations for this 10 yr old motorcycle have been surpassed.

Vibes are nonexistent compared to the smokers or CRFx. Suspension is smooooth. It rides high in the stroke and feels firm but not harsh like the x, and very progressive. The motor is mellow enough down low to maintain traction in snotty conditions with all the grunt I could need from mid to top. Slight stumble off idle is my only complaint. I'm about to shake a wrench at the cap of a bottle of SeaFoam carb rebuild kit. Hope that does the trick cause I'd hate to break a nail or get my skirt dirty working on this thing.

Thanks for the info. Sorry I missed your call, I was in a meeting.

I had a lead on a 05 exc but the guy backed out. Still shopping.

The definition of "Dual Sport" is in the eye of the beholder

Don't get me started on them. I would never had bought one outright. Getting used to the one that came on the 300, and loving it, was definitely the deciding factor in going that far for this EXC.
Now I'm going to need a $$ LHRB $$ and knoobies on this one!

Anyone running the new? Teraflex?

Any good rides today? Took the wife on a short beat around the Forest with Tork and Britt. Rode up a creek that was a county rode. Gotta love WV.
