I was looking for a EXC or FE when this popped up for a great price with a ton of aftermarket shit on it already. Same, I like Hondas.I would have looked at the Honda when I was buying because I really Like Hondas (I own 6) but I do not like the handling of 450's or 500's. They all feel like the weight is in the gas cap to me and feel like the want to fall over in turns and stuff. The 350 feels like my old CR250 where it feels like the weight is down low. I can drift around corners/turns and stuff on this like my 2 stroke. I am sure I would have got used to the feeling but I just liked the low center of gravity feel this one gave.
You can feel the difference just standing next to the bike and grabbing the bars. The FE feels like a 125 and CRF feels like a street bike.
