XR 400 , the bike that gave us usable power , excellent range , reliability , could tackle single track and desert runs . You still see these things out on the trails now . After 5 to 6 years a modern bike is finished , throw aważ . Not the XR ! And no spot for it on the poll .

Red z50 with no rear suspension. Handed down from my brother. Simply because it was where the addiction, great times, mateship and fun all began.

I have still never got over the fact my old man gave it away to a tenant in one of the houses on the farm.

Unfortunately my 17 ktm 300, although awesome, will never beat that little z50.

Had a 250 2T, 400 and 250 4T. They're all good.

But for a fat, old, full sized human being who likes riding bikes over and through stuff they have no right to go over and through its got to be a 300 2T.

Nothing else has the punch for the weight. Nothing else needs the same effort to ride well. Nothing else will do. Not yet, anyway..
