I have my 2003 450f up for sale here in Mtn. Home, and intend on getting an 06 next year.

Just wondering if many people here are going for the 06.

When I was a kid starting out, I had a black and yellow yz so I have to go with the 50th anniversary 450F. :banghead:

So, who else is going to the 06?

I plan to step up to an '06 or maybe an '07. Trouble is it'll probably be '08 before I do. :banghead: I can never afford to buy new. :banghead:

I'm getting mine in December, wanted a yellow 450 but have to settle for a blue one since yellow is not available in Europe. Guess I have to buy a set of yellow plastics and OEM graphics (expensive :banghead: ), still won't have an all black seat. I'm really disappointed.
Does anyone know the planned Limited Edition production numbers?

Im gonna buy a blue one...no desire for the yellow. I have no idea exactly when the dealers will have them, nor do i want to put any money (i.e. deposit) in their dirty little hands until they do!

If I had my way about it (and the $) I'd be picking up a blue one as soon as it hit my dealer's floor.

I will pick mine up as soon as the crate hits the ground from the delivery truck. I get the first one that hits the ground at my dealer.

I've heard the first part of November, at least that's what the dealership here has told me. Hope they don't drag it out till next year! lol

My dad's CRF450R is so much better than my -03 YZ450F that I will have to ride the -06 before I commit to buying one. Right now I'm on track to get a leftover -05 Honda.
