I am an old fart, I am 44 now and it clears doubles cleanly with ease, a 450 would probably get me in trouble. Just get it sprung for your weight, I weigh 230 and it still rips.
In all honesty I know I don't NEED a 450...
The main reason I WANT a 450 is just for dune riding. They seem to stay on top the sand quite a bit better. I rode a buddy's KTM 350 and it was plenty fast enough for me.... I will probably end up going that route or a 250F.
