people are saying the bike will kick my ass, i can't see that happening, lots of times i feel like i could twist the throttle on my 250 a full rotation instead of a quater.

Ive been riding since I was about 7 but thats not the deal here. I am telling you go get it. It might take a little bit to get used to it but you will be fine. Just respect the thing and it will respect you. I guarantee you if you go and buy a smaller bike aka the 250f you will regret it when the 450's are smoking your but up the hills. (no offense 250f riders)

It doesn't matter how big you are. Look at RC, he races a 450F at the highest level and weighs 150 pounds and stands 5'6". All that matters is your skill level and strength.

I'm 5" 71/2" 170 Lbs. Pretty strong, but been off bikes for 6 years. The YZ 400 I have is a bear, but DAMN!!!!!!!!!! I love the power. I struggle to start it, especially when in the woods without a stand. Probably need to get a kickstand. I might sell just because of starting issues, but no matter what I get it will pale compared to the glorious POWER of the big bore : :banghead:
