Joining in a year later here. Been racing MX for 20 (alive for 24) years and got into adventure riding this year. Bought an Africa Twin this February and been pounding the dirt miles on it but it’s still not enough of a dirt machine for me. So I picked up a 450L last week “used” with 140 miles. God I love this bike. I played with guys on 300exc’s doing some hard enduro riding my second day on it and this bike is unbelievable. For a 450, it feels like I’m on my MTB (maybe it’s from all that single track practice on an ACTUAL heavy bike, my AT). Oh and the AT didn’t go anywhere. It’s purpose is for the long hauls and multi day camping trips.
