Since this is the member "support" forum I am asking for you members to help me through this.

I am desperately close to putting a deposit down on a RED bike:silly: The new CRF 450 is just more than I can take. Everytime I read about the bike here, or see it in a national, I get bitten again. What to do??

$200 gets me one guaranteed. Our local dealer is estimating 30 to be delivered to him. I would be #10 on the list. He is selling them at straight retail $6299.00, and the deposit is even fully refundable.

HELP!

Well Strick, I'll do my best here to help:

1. I saw this bike at glen helen and it is awesome,as nimble as a 125
2. $200.00 is not that much money
3. Very cool red color
4. #10 is better than #31
5. your KTM is 3 yrs. old
6. I'm sure your wife will understand
7. You can be the first kid on the block
8. Stress is not good for the heart

I hope that I was able to help and good luck:D

Strick buy it man! Why not? I mean getting it at MSRP and all. It's going to be a high demand bike so even if you take it out for a spin and hate it you'll be able to sell it and MAKE money on the deal. (The only down side will be I'll have to lock you out of the pumpkin patch ;) )

Vested Interest

Patman, you just want me to stop cluttering up your forum, Huh?

Why isn't anyone (almost-Jaybird) trying to talk me out of this? I really may have to go do this today:scream:

Big Lou - ask away, if you didn't live so far away I would even dial 'er for you!

Re: Talk you out of it?

Your talking to a guy that rode a 250MXC on a friday evening and was at the dealer the next day working the trade! I say go for it. Every now and then you just have to say "What the heck", right?

As for dialing in, I'll meet you in Western Kansas!;)

Yeah that's it Strick, your just a trouble maker I'm tryin' to sweep into the thumper forum ;)

Really I'd consider doing a deal like that myself except I've been on a spending spree the past week and figure the wife might snap over another new bike in addition to the trailer, tractor, loader.....

Ok try this:

1. You would be better off with a 125
2. $200.00 is a heck of alot of money
3. Red!...give me a break
4. At # 31 you could consider yourself lucky
5. Your KTM is only 3yrs. old
6. Your wife would kill ya.
7.What... you trying to be the first kid on the block.....grow up
8. Stress... yeah what ever

How's that ;)

I am too old for open class 2-stroke power every ride. If I really have the urge I'll ride John Blaze's (if he will let me). Nice try though Okie!;)
