    Hey crew, next week I finally have enough to get me a 450r, have been anxiously saving and now the time is almost upon me, however my local dealer has just got another 450r in and i am struggling to make a decision on which to get, Really i prefer the stock crf look but the one thats just arrived looks really trick and im sure goes hard, quite keen for your input before I make my decision so any and all feedback is appreciated. as far as im aware neither bike has been raced, however will confirm with shop when he rings me tomorrow, cheers.

    holy smokes. msrp for a New 2009 450 is 7999

    those seem a bit expensive to me even if they have a few bolt ons. just my opinion though

    hard call. I think I would go for the one that hasn't been ridden as long.

    Decision made, rang honda shop and talked to the guy and asked if either had been raced which was a no, turned out i actually know who used to own the done up one and i rang him to discuss it's history and an overview (extremely breif) of some of the mods on it, long story short im getting the modified one, now all i gotta do is wait till thursday to go pick it up and sign the finance papers and have some fun :)
