We do. I'm perfectly content with the riding here. People blow through on the interstate, then complain about how it sucks here and that it's so flat. Ironically, the largest mountain range between the Rockies and Appalachians is right here in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Northwest Arkansas is becoming a Mountain Bike Mecca. WalMart foundation has spent over 70 million on trails there.

I’m assuming that’s the new Honda 450?

How are you liking the bike?  

I’m glad Honda stepped up with a 450 option.

I've already put on a Seat Concepts seat. a luggage rack, and a Ram mount. Hand guards are next. It certainly doesn't need anything in the engine or suspension department. I might do the tail kit but I will probably wait until I loop it out and destroy it. I may consider lowering it someday - good gawd this thing is tall.

Picked this up two weeks ago.  Bigsmile  

Mods are - PMR rack, Apache box from Harbor Freight, SilverStar bulb and Garmin power cable / mount for the Zumo. Two mods, planned, to go; SpeedoDRD from 12oclocklabs.com (ordered) to correct the 10% speedo error and a Sargent seat at some point.
