I am looking to buy an 06 YZ450 this weekend and there are several I am considering. Ranging from a well used one for $4000 to a ridden 2x one for $4500. Which bike would you go after?

Spend the extra 5 and get the newer one... just make sure he's not trying to mislead you. Sometimes people who say "only ridden twice" are blatently lying. The only way to really tell is by looking at the bike thoroughly, and making that judgment for yourself. But in general, go for the newer bike. Good luck!
