I picked up my YZ450F last Friday too. Had a choice between blue or white and decided to go with the white. One can't go wrong either way. I was only able to ride it around home for about 15 minutes or so yesterday but I really like the throttle control over the older YZ250 2 smoker I got rid of a while back. After riding the new bike for a while, I then rode with one of our son's on our CRF230 (he on a CRF100) and I had to chuckle. How quickly you forget the power of the race bikes after not riding one for a couple of years. The CRF230 which was fun just a few days ago seemed really boring. Definetely glad to be back. The bike does back fire on deceleration so I have some jetting work to perform when lubing up the bike and swapping out some of the stock components including the flywheel. Other than that, not much I need to do for the type of riding our family does. I am not a track racer but I like to open it up across the fields and do alot of jumping on our land. Definetely happy with the choice I made.
