................favorite year as far as graphics and (not that you have a lot of choices) color?

Mine is with out a doubt, no question in my mind, the 97. I think it has the best graphics of any year for sure and I love the color white.

Yep, if I would get an L, a 97 it would be for sure. The other white ones with purple (PURPLE, what were they thinking???) or blue on just don't do a thing for me.

Now Honda goes the other direction and puts the most boring graphics on (L or R or CRF's) that I have ever seen.

I agree 97:thumbsup: , except I prefer mine, my 02, I got all white plastic with black seat and black tool bag no graphics, just the way I like it.

Yep, that looks good compared to todays version, is it me or does the rear fender look like its a bit higher, not as much droop?

A bit higher, not as much droop, as compared to what, the Red ones? If it isn't as much, I like it better that way.

Man that would look good aside of my (garage) CRF :devil:

Yea, todays version is nice but the graphics just flow better on this one. It has a raceier look to it.

:thumbsdn: :excuseme: :thumbsdn: Hey, where the heck :cry: did my garage go ??? :cry: Someone stold my garage !!!! :cry:

:devil: Will our garages most likely come back on their own? Are the TT moderators dicking around with us or what?

Who is Eleanor?

Since when did Permalink appear in the upper R? What's that mean?

Yea, that looks pretty dawg gone sweet too buddy! :devil: I like em both but still favor the 97 by just a smidgen or two, it matches my CRF much better too but yea, if a primo 93 came along that was really nice, I'd give it serious thought. Thanks for posting that one :thumbsdn:

Yoe rebelvenurer, this pic looks even WORSE !! It looks like he has :thumbsdn: 18" of travel!!

Dont know whether our garages will come back or how to put a link to my bike up here:banghead: eleanor was the badass 67 mustang in gone in 60 seconds, I was caalling her see if she showed up, no luck yet.
I like the 97 rear fender better not as much droop as the new millenium bikes. Hey I think I saw one on ebay tonight, may have been a 93, but did those have two carbs?

In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter :thumbsdn: Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty niner,
And his daughte In a cavern, in a canyon,
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter Clementine

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes, without topses,
Sandals were for Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Drove she ducklings to the water
Ev'ry morning just at nine,
Hit her foot against a splinter,
Fell into the foaming brine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Ruby lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,
But, alas, I was no swimmer,
So I lost my Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

How I missed her! How I missed her,
How I missed my Clementine,
But I kissed her little sister,
I forgot my Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

This song ROCKS !!!!! :devil:
