Give up on that idea. Old dirt bikes are pretty, but they suck to ride. I have several in the garage to remind me.



Get a 95 or later KDX200. It'll be cheaper than the old bike, and a lot more fun to ride. You'll thank me later.

Oops. I didn't read all the way. If street legality is mandatory, get a DR350 or DRZ400.

Well even the wheel probably claimed a lot of lives before right thinking cave people everwhere banded together and legislated the bejeezus out of it. Thereby preserving the antecedents of this gentlemen's birth.

I'm so jealous! I always hear about these guys but never see them. What I wouldn't give to see a sparkling new GSX parking lot demolition (with no injuries of coarse). Man, I gotta hang out at the dealerships more.

After that fight with Castillo I figured getting hit by a Benz wouldn't even phase that guy. Lesson learned.



He had the 2007 GSX-R1000. If only he had the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector in position "C"!



I kid, but I am bummed. He was a great fighter, more so than a great boxer. His inabilty to make weight recently suggests that maybe his best days were behind him, at least as a lightweight. You never know in boxing though.



I was preparing to gird my loins for the onslaught of Big Ben style media attention directed to sport bikes that are so dangerous they are killing off our athletes. Then I remembered no one watches boxing anymore. I guess DeLaHoya/ Mayweather didn't save boxing.



RIP Chico

I'm a boxing fan and that fight was as boring as I expected.



Other than Manny Pacaquiao, there is no one worth watching in boxing.

I'm sorry, - to whom[/i] are you referring? Some kooky lunatic sock-puppet? We have none here fitting that description.

# of clicks to get something to come up. That may not be his problem but it's my biggest one at the moment.

Easy question...get a pre-1974 Yamaha Enduro. Reliable as a claw hammer, and with some good shocks & some fork mods they handle pretty damn good. Parts are stilll easy to get too.



A 250 is best, a 360 even better. Look on ebay under "Yamaha Enduro".
