Default New Toy

     

After weeks of phone calls and emails a fine young man bought my 98CR250 out of Longview Texas. I was able to purchase the CRF 450 I have been watching for several weeks. It is an 02' and I cant wait for Saturday so I can ride it.

CRF450_2

The young man emailed me last night and was just thrilled about the bike, he took it riding the next day. It was great to hear that he is already enjoying it so much.

2002 was this first year.

The bike rocks! What a different type of ride than my CR250, I wont say it is easier, but then again it was my first ride, took a while to get used to the engine braking and the torque, but smoooooothh! After about two hours my buddies could no longer keep up, I LOVED IT! Cant wait for my next ride.

Looking forward to a ride report on the CRF250?

WOW, that is a nice CRF.

Looks like you got it with all the goodies... I really like the PIPE... that thing is supposed to be the best pipe bar none for the CRF. Wish I had the coin for one.

how much?

The pipe and the storm linkage came on the bike. He started out at $4,500 and I ended up getting the bike for $3,800. The used market is tough in this area, lots of bikes for sale, but the tracks are always full, everyone must be out buying new bikes.

I like the pipe as well, but it is loud compared to my two stroke!

I saw the new Suzuki 250 four stroke Saturday at the track, did not hear any feedback on the ride though, having to much fine on my new used toy!

Did you tell the guy that bought your bike to come join us at ATM.

BTW, that is one fine sharp looking CR450F.

On the side note, about the bike selling market. A very good high school friend of mine picked up a cherry 02 KTM250exc for $2800.00. The guy was wanting $3000 for it which I thought was a steal, but to get it for 2800, was unbelieveable.
