great job Ken. i can hear Doug drooling from here.
Oh, he is !
Sounds to me like the bike is kicking rear and is going to be a real favorite.
How obvious can it be that the bike is the easiest and most fun to ride in the field when they gave the bike to the dude who was whipped ?
Speaking of obvious, when you put together snow,a tired,unfamiliar with a Rekluse rider, to me that equals a barbequed clutch.
I can't wait to see how this all pans out. With this bike being both a rocket and easy to ride , this is going to expose the "450X is too heavy" as the bs that it is.
Sure it would be great if it did all it does and had all it has,yet still weighed 30 pounds less.
The problem is is that then it would probably have an MSRP OF 11,OOO bucks.
The way things are now it's the best 450 off-road bike made as far as I'm concerned, kept only from complete dominance and near perfection because it should have a 6th gear. Not for me, I don't need it where I ride but the dual sport and desert riders could put it to good use. Doug
