Been looking at that CRF450F to go with my 11-year old son's CRF80F. Still thinking I would prefer that magic e-button on the WR450 though, so leaning that way.

Nice scenery!
the kick starter is small price to pay compared to the weight savings.

I agree with you on the weight savings. I have the opinion that using a bike for what it is designed for is the better way to go. Don't get me wrong because I think the crf is probably an awesome bike, and definitely lighter than the wr450, but it was designed for the track. The wr was designed for the trails and I find it works much better there than any motocross bike, at least for me it does. If I rode motocross, then I would get a motocross bike, but I don't. I ride trails and I got a bike designed for that. I just wish someone would have told me this before I got my last bike, a yz426. It was a great bike, but man, the suspension was much too harsh for me and I hated the tranny bad.

Actually all I ride are trails and desert with the CRF, but I knew I wanted a much lighter bike. I was coming off a KTM that was only 10lbs heavier then the WR450 and it had a kick starter. So I didn't want that extra weight and it is such a huge difference. I plan on going to Moab sometime this year and hooking up with R1-superstar maybe you can meet us out there also, and I will let you take a spin.

Hey, Moab sounds fun. I'll talk to Danny and see what the deal is. There is another group from thumpertalk going to moab, but they have dual sports and it just isn't worth it to me to make my bike street leagal for one ride.
