Hey guys,
I started a thread about a Wr 450 in the crate, and received several great responses regarding a good deal on '03 versus just getting an '05.
First of, thanks for all the input! You guys were real helpful and I look forward to posting in this forum once I have my hands on my 2005 WR 450! :D
2 reasons I am going with the '05;
1). After all I have read here, the '05 has some nice upgrades.
2). My bonus check was a little bigger than I expected, so I am going to spoil myself. I have never owned a new dirtbike, I have always bought used.
It's about time! :D

Once again thanks for all the help, and I will update my garage as soon as I have my hands on the WR. (gotta change my Avatar to... :D )
That should be within the next few weeks!

Nice to hear. You won't be dissapointed (ok, I was first time I started it up. So quiet, I thought what have I brought. I just felt worse when my mates started their YZ450's for the first time too)

I've never owned a second hand bike, I don't like the idea of buying someone elses problems.

Good to hear about your decision, I rode mine all weekend after finishing all the free mods during the week. You won't be sorry.

Congrats. I was disappointed at first, but once I finished all the free mods, and put over 100 miles on the bike to break it in, it really came to life. :D

Well, you will throw rocks at those Honda now, and I mean literally, with your roost! Nice choice.

Anvilair:

Do yourself a favor, study the free mods in depth so you are totally familiar with them, ride the bike completely stock for a day or so, then do the free mods the next day and ride again. You will be blown away!. By the way, give yourself plenty of room on this ride to feel the full power of your new fire breathing machine.

A few weeks later, get out your wallet, install a few of the upgrades you hear everyone talking about (JD kit, Power Now, exhaust, etc.) and get ready to be blown away all over again!
