I have been riding a '92 XR 600 R for six years, i have loved every minute of it, i usually get cash bonuses at work, but this month my boss gave me a very well taken care of '91 CR 500, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! that's the most fun i have had since i was 17. i had a KTM 125 2 stroke that my mom sold when i joined the navy. I love my thumper....... but, holy cow, it kind of grabs you by the boo boo don't it. why would anyone build a bike that fast, it's totally wicked,hehehe.??
