not many bikes,if any that look as good as the old red,blue and yellow xr's from the 80's..thats nice bro

Yeh, brings back great memories from the good ol days.

I rode one of these for 15 years - what a great bike it was!  NEVER failed to start, and carried me all over the dez and Baja; matter of fact, I bought it for Baja!  If it only weighed a little less...

I had an 84 xr250r back in 85, well, we all did back then. I think i payed about $1200 AUD for it. They were the bee's knee's back then hence everybody either having the 250 or the 350. The cops had the 500's.
