    You sure you 2 didn't race together, years ago,,,lol,,,

    45 deg out today,did a new loop to Bromley's for a diffrent area,and alot to say after riding L in its trim today.1/2 dirt,1/2 secondary roads, I don't do pavement much,but these roads were,Zinger style,

    The More miles on it ,the smoother things get,vibes, susp,motor,frame more,,buttery on ends,he'll I even can put my ear to left side and hear such a smoorh timing chain,,
    Laugh all u want,things settling down all over on L, no vibes,so it's like things shut out,and u here it bearley breathing,but it's wfo,,, you hear good things,

    According to Honda titanium is cheaper to produce,process takes shorter time contrary the time it takes to produce the plastic tank,also titanium tank walls can be made much thinner too.It comes down to time & $.

    Honda would hit a home run if they built a lower seat height, low weight singletrack bike from that trials bike. Kinda like a better Yamaha Tricker, kinds likea 4 stroke Beta x-trainer.
    An easier to ride woods 4 stroke w/o a monster tall seat that come with all woods bikes. A nice easy bike to pick your way thru the woods for the mellower rider.

    Makes too much sense so they would never do it.

    Has anyone put a low front fender on the bike to improve manners on the road? I don’t ride in a lot of mud so no specific need for a high fender so wondering what a low fender CRF450L might look like. Any ideas what front fender might be about to be fitted?

    Cool. Still has that shifter too far away for heavy shifting but I like it.
