Finally a legit 450L thread is warming up!!
Just in time for snow!
Plus I always have my trusty Butler map as a backup
I just was holding a IMS 450L tank in my hands
It is so nice !!!!
And able to read the speedo while doing it.
Bring it on over let’s see how she fits hahaha
I’m inviting you to ride with me so you can see first hand.
You can bring your CRF450L
And I’m older not blind it doesn’t take much to glance down as the bike is coming up under you
Where are you at? I'd love to ride with you. I actually want to ride an elle or at least see one ridden.
Congrats! and at 71 staying active. Remember it’s just a number with age there is wisdom and experience, sometimes that’s an advantage.
Enjoy the ride and let us know how it’s working out plus all the goodies you add.
Much Respect K
Any other angles??
Nice collection! Garage Mahal is quite fitting! I too hope to have a collection some day.
The ergos look pretty good on the 450. I put taller bars on my AT and standing is still not as comfortable as it could be.
Ahh, , , the Mahal is a good place!! Lots of stuff happens up there!!
The AT has about an inch up & an inch back risers. I’m Short & it’s not as comfortable as I’d like when standing. I’m right at 25,000 miles now so I’ve learned to live with it!!
I’ve got a set of Renthal Fat Bars (Enduro Bend) coming for the 450. I ordered the Renthal Fatbar mounts for that easy install!!
To me the seat is really bad, , like sitting on a 4x4!! I’ve got a Grom & I thought that Seat was bad. Hopefully the 450 Seat Concepts “Comfort Seat” will arrive soon.
Retirement has been good. Gotta have a bike for every purpose........ :)
Lots of folks with these bikes already and there aren’t a ton of reviews or videos up. I want one I just want to see more information out.
Video review, from a current WR250R owner (me):
I was out washing my bike and a guy who lives in the neighborhood stops with his KTM decals all over his back window, and says as he is walking up I can't believe you paid that much for a Honda with 25hp you could have gotten a KTM 500 for a better deal with way more power BLah BLah BLah crap I just let him rant didn't really say too much other than when you get some free time we should go ride together and I will try my best to keep up hahahaha.
Too much interweb for people and too much misinformation out there I really hope he takes me up on the ride so he will scratch his head and loose sleep on how a 25hp bike can perform like that.
SoCal. You live in the riders dream Wa.
I guess he has some insecurities he needs to deal with !
I also called IMS today inquired about a tank they said mid to end November for a 3 and some change gallon tank and after the first of the year for a bigger one but didn't know the size. Same answers as someone else mentioned.
But I figured the more that call or email the better.
I'm going to find out my future on Wednesday. I think it is orange.
Some like Orange Kool-Aid some like Red or Blue im not brand loyal I just ride what feels the best to me, but thank god it wasn't a Green bike.
