Well I have had months of turmoil. And wake up everyday wanting a different bike. I have narrowed it down between a 04 525SX or a CR500AF but now I need to choose between the two. My last bikes were an 02 380SX, 01 Husaberg FC550 and a 99 380EXC. All were big power bikes with the 550 having the most. I really like the open class power. I like the power of the 4-strokes a little more but I hate engine braking. Im not to keen on the oil changes and valve adjustments of the 4-strokes, not to mention they are not much more than time bombs waiting to go off. Sure they may never go off, but when they do you better be prepared to take out a second on the house. So I think I would prefer the CR500AF. I told the wife what it costs and she said that I could get it but I better plan on having this bike longer "a really long time" than a year. Anyway.... Does anyone know when the 04 CR500AF's will be out. And does Honda have a financing program for these bikes. I doubt my bank will have any clue... AJ you out there? I would mainly be using it in the desert and a MX here or there. Has anyone put a flywheel weight on these bikes? The no power valve thing seems a little intimidating... Well thats enough for now... Thanks for any help guys......
