Hmmm...I guess you've never heard of a little race called the Baja 1000, or perhaps riders like Mouse McCoy, Johnny Campbell or Steve Hengeveld. How about Malcolm Smith? What's the common factor? Yep, the Honda XR650 and its predecessors. If ignorance is bliss like they say, then you must have perma-grin :ride:. But please continue, I enjoy seeing my point of view etched in stone...SC


2006 Baja 500
1. Robby Bell, Murrieta, Calif./Kendall Norman, Santa Barbara, Calif., Honda CRF450X

"The big news in the bike class starts with Robby Bell and Kendall Norman taking the overall race win on a Precision Concetpts/American Honda CRF450X by nine minutes over teammates Steve Hengeveld and Mike Childress."

Impressive, but the results are from the Baja 500. Let's see how they do in November. If they can repeat in the big daddy, then I guess the CRF may be the new king of the desert. The trick is to turn it into a habit...SC

SC, do you think the 450x will make the whole 1000? Do you think it was the bike that helped Robby Bell win? Maybe he rode the 450x because he wanted more bling since he is only 21.

Steve, let's not blame the 450X when team Honda chooses the 650 for the 1000. The 650 is the perfect machine for the 1000, it's a big stable bike that has big power and sure, it has proven itself that it's a bike that can go the distance time and time again but they'll have no problem pulling out their 450 when the course tightens up. Honda has a choice of weapons.. The fact that the 450x is being raced by Honda's A and B teams says a lot for the bike.

I've always been one to give credit where credit is due. But like I said, let's see what happens in November. Keep in mind though, one win is a fluke, two wins are a lucky coincidence, but three wins is a dynasty. I don't make the rules, but I do pay attention to them...SC

I say atleast wait till the bike is released before you pass judgement. you guys are sitting here arguing over a bike that none of you have even touched.

Yes....the latter two who got lost! I wouldn't count the 650 out for the Baja 1000 in the fall. It still has the legs over the 450X. And the 450X will actually have have to finish that (twice as long) race...while the 650 can turn around and do it again! :ride:

Do a search...look your self....look it up in your manual.... I have heard it all here in the past six months. So
Why does it seem that when ever I am curious about my new Yamaha's something or other and do the TT search, it's says it's busy and to come back later?
Well, I have !@#$%&* parts all over the !@#$%&* damn floor and I need to KNOW NOW! Thats why I post questions that people have seen before time and again, get tired of reading them - sorry!
Thank you to all who have responded with kind helpful advise in the past.
You are the one's who make the difference here, again thank you.

Well said, Clark....I have 37 years of riding under my belt and have to agree with most of what you said! Same sort of experience, started on an Arctic Cat mini and have been riding ever since. No respect from the newbies anymore...

I think the point that Clark was trying to make is that he is a gaywad and he would like everyone to bask in his alternative glory. (Oh I am sure you remember that word clark-e-boy)

Start your own website with a membership of one. You can call it iamclarkeboyandiknowitall.com.

There have been a lot of names dropped in this thread who are supposed experts. I have ridden with several and ride regularly with one. They will tell you right off that they learned much of what they know by posting and reading replies. In the '80s we didn't have this tool. You rode your bike almost stock because you didn't know any better and none of your friends did either. I welcome this media and it has quickly solved a few problems and saved me money.
