Nice R Demon :yes:I have 3or 4 buddys with old school quads and 3 wheelers

I love my R, it is a bit rude and unrefined compared to my LT-R. My LT-R rides like a Cadillac, and the CR 500 powered R is like wrestling with a bear, but when it comes to haulin as* and shredding dunes, you can't beat it.

CR500 powered R WOW I want to ride that beast
I wish i had a CR500 powered R lol, No more messing with these stupid things called valves and all that.

The 500R is alot of fun to ride, every now and then. The vibes that come from that non-counterballanced big bore motor tear the bike apart. It is alot better in the dunes, the soft sand helps absorb some of the vibration. The part where I don't have to mess with the valves is the next thing behind the power that the motor makes. It's also kind of fun to watch peoples expressions when I blow by their brand new Raptor 700s and 450s with a home made quad pwered by a 25 year old motor.

I know all to well about the "phantom gear" I look for it on my LT-R all the time, but I never find it. The 500R will hit around 90 when I run the 22/20 inch tires instead of the 20/18 setup I usually run, so I don't find my self looking for the extra gear as much on that one. It will pull the taller gearing with the big tires, but it is hard to ride in the tight trails since it doesn't do slow real well, it takes alot of clutch work and that clutch isn't exactly easy to pull.

      What are your riding location preferences? Mud Park? Personal Trails? Public Land?

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.
