so even though both the yellow and the blue bikes are 50th anniversery the yellow one is labled "SE" . Thats funny, because the place that is selling them is charging $500 more for the SE. what a rip off; Oh well, thats berts for you.

The SE costs $200 difference here in Australia, my mate has the 250F and a i bought the blue 450F. In my opinion the blue is the goods, his yellow plastics are fading and the bike looks old.

SE is $200 more, your paying for the 50th Anniversity plastics and graphics. Which, if you go to your dealer and try to order the SE OEM parts it comes up to close to $500 all together. So if you buy a SE from your dealer in the first place its cheaper.

If a question like that was asked in the CRF forum this poor guy would have gotten flamed and abused like he caused 9/11! back to the subject, go with the blue if you ride it like you stole it and go with the yellow if you like your stuff well blung. :applause:

The blue model is listed at $5,500 plus fees. So it's probably about $6,000 out the door.
