2014 CRF450X for safe

My CRF450X is for sale on eBay for those who like their adventures to be a little bit more fruity. It's in very good condition, low hours, rock solid reliability and has the benefit of a 13 litre Acerbis tank so that you can scare yourself for longer https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%...

Re: Honda 450L

And ive watched too many Dakar Videos from the 80s - the epitome of cool, guys with a rucksack and a compass, riding an XT600 deep deep in the Sahara. Of course suck a bike couldn't compete nowadays in the Dakar but it's never the bike that stops you going anywhere, just the mentality
