wow! you came off of a ysr50 and onto a Yz426?! Musta been a big step, hehe.

For me, im only 16, so i dont have much of a list but im working on it. I started off with quads a few years ago, but then i saw the light

ATVs:
85' Honda Big Red 250 (yeah baby!)
89' Zuki LT250r
97' 240 blaster
00' 410x race quad (4-stroker)
00' 400ex

Bikes:
99' Kx100
96' Cr125
99' Yz125
90' Rm250
00' Yz426

Pics are on my website..

Ive tasted perfection... now ill never go back to quads. Bikes rule! :)

The other day i was on a quad again and went over about a 20 ft. double. The darn thing got just a little sideways in the air and i ended up crashing and flipped the quad about 3 times before it landed on me.

Again, i say, bikes rule!

Yea, that's the one. Bought it for $300. I think I had to pay someone to take it off my hands. An ad in the local paper summed up the TM400:

For sale, 1974 TM400. Possible injury forces sale.

Without a doubt, the scariest bike I've ever ridden. Powerband was about as wide as a flea's shoulders.
