86' yamaha XT350...turn the throttle it would spit a quart of oil out of the muffler. (needless to say it smoked a little LOL)
93' KX250 paid 1,000 for it put 3,500 in it. All I did was work on it. must have had that motor down 20x Finally just sold it at a hell of a loss $1,540 bucks on ebay and I had to deliver it.
fourwheeler: 88' kawasaki mojave 250 plain junk, nothing more broke while it was sitting in the shed by itself overnight. It was pissed when I rode it so it broke, when I wasn't riding it I swear something was breaking.
01' YZF426 NO NEED TO EXPLAIN!!
87' XR200R bought it to replace the oil burning XT350. Paid 1,000 sold it for 1,000 6 years later. Still running today with nothing done but change the oil!!
90' CR500R man that thing was powerful. paid 1,200 for it sold it for $2,000. Guy blew it up next day. I think he has like 8,000 invested in it now! "how do you blow up a CR500R" He said he actually was overrevving it. He should be dead! LOL

Best bike..'98 YZ-400. When it stays together it is awsome. The suspension is awsome (after revalve). Hopefully the 426 top and bottom end, and Wr transmission will hold up this time.

The worst was my 91 KDX250. It did not turn for sh1t and I always had to repair it.

The worst was a 1990 ATK 406. ATK stands for A Thousand Kicks because thats how many it took to start the thing. I learned to park on hills.

1975 Yamaha SC-500 (could have been a 74). You may remember the silver tank with red strip, single cylinder tractor. The throttle stuck wide open on the second lap. I held on for five turns. Bailed out as the bike went sailing off the backside of a big man made berm.
Last seen the bike was headed for the water hole in the middle of the old Slidell Speedway just outside New Orleans.
The best is my 426. Next would be the 1988 Maico 400. What a great bike.

My best, well just look at my signature, that tells the story.

best either a 92 YZ250, it always ran no matter what, only had to change a plug once in 2 and a half years of owning. after a wreck, nothing would be broke it was just fine. only bent handlebars maybe.
or my 426 because of power and suspension, i think now that its warmer itll stop fouling plugs so im happy with it now

Best bike...for the dirt>>>> no doubt my 01 YZ426F..after getting used to a four..I'll never own another two stroke..why??? I got comfortable on it pretty quick and I'm riding more confident these days..The 426..the hottest 4 stroke..major league balls and great suspension outta the box!!!

They wanted a ride on the scooter, too.
Worst bike: The XT600. It never broke down, but every time it went over in the woods, something on it was going to break. Big heavy pig.

Best bike: I would have to say my RM just because of the great hit (Adjustable power valve, hits so hard most people wouldnt ride it if i let them), instant throttle rsponse, and great handling.
Worst bike: a week ago it would have been the RM. Nothing but trouble. Top end, clutch gaskets,big oil leak. It burned up all my cash but it looks like everything is gonna work out.

best bike: anything that is not a TTR225
Posted June 10, 2002 - 04:00 PM
Worst: 00/426 (when it's broke 30%)
Overall, I'd rate my 88/CR500 the best overall bike I've ever owned. I'm just a lot faster on the YZ
