My pride and joy, I have said more times than I can count, the best purchase I have made in my life so far, is my '93 XR600R. I rode a '97 XR200R until I literally beat it to death. I actually wasn't really looking for a 600 when I got it, but a deal presented itself and as if fate itself had led us together, I swiped it for $1100 and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It's the only bike I have and someday when I run into gobs of money, I will most likely get a 650r, just to see how much faster it is, but I'll never let go of my BWP!!!

I got a fresh (factory chain) 1999 XR6 last year for $2000. It even came with a chainsaw rack. It still has the factory chain.

I have an 87 xr600r, runs really strong. I seem to always flood it when I am riding and kill it. My bro has a 96. We both love ours. They are undoubtedly t he best bike built....don't even think about arguing either.

Here' s my 1992RN. Will never sell the XR600 because it' s my favourite bike and I know I will never find one as clean as this one again- not many of 'em in the UK.
