Still my favourite trail bike I've owned to date, even if it was a bugger to start sometimes .....

That is an awesome bike. Love how the shocks are yellow. I could see ripping around a dirt track and having so much fun with that bike. The headlight is so 80s too. I love it.

Do you still own it or sold it already? If you sold it, would you ever consider getting another one?

Sounds like he already sold it or else I think that we would have a personal picture instead of a promo shot. Too bad though. I wonder how much these things go for on the market these days.

The cylinder head cracked at 38,000+ miles. An engineering firm said they would fix it but never did, so I sold the bike to a breaker.

I'd buy another if it had an electric start.

That bike looks like a lot of fun. Do you take it our on dirt tracks?
It's a lot of fun to ride :) .

I've had the CRF 2 years and the plan was to take it off road on a regular basis. Unfortunately, it's only been off road twice. Once this year and once last year. Perhaps I'll trade it in for a YZF-R3 or another sub 500cc road bike, I don't know yet.

I'd like to get some test rides on the 250cc and 300cc Kawasakis, 300cc and 500cc Hondas in addition to the YZF-R3. They all look fun bikes. I rode the Ninja 300 last year and thought it was a great bike but didn't feel it was powerful enough for me to be enough fun, but I've changed my mind now :) .

If you can get your hands on one of the old two strokers JUMP on it immediately :D I'm looking for an old 2 stroke dual sport round my parts at current, would be fun to have as an extra run about if I can find it for a proper price...

To you new riders as well 2 strokes really teach you about throttle control as the power band is anything BUT linear ;)
