2005 Honda CR450F
Fading Out

Towards the end of 2008, I started thinking of riding again. I was now gainfully employed and the racing budget, although still small, was restored. My friend, Brian Nelsen, was looking to sell this bike. Unlike the previous 450, I knew that it didn't have too many hours on it, and that any motorcycle that Brian owned would be in top-notch mechanical condition. It was ready to go except that it was sprung way too stiff for me. Looking back, the fact that it took me months to get those new springs installed, and that I didnít race at all in 2008, was a sign of my growing disinterest in racing.
