................favorite year as far as graphics and (not that you have a lot of choices) color? Mine is with out a doubt, no question in my mind, the 97. I think it has the best graphics of any year for sure and I love the color white. Yep, if I would get an L, a 97 it would be for sure. The other white ones with purple (PURPLE, what were they thinking???) or blue on just don't do a thing for me. http://w1.bikepics.com/pics/2005%5C01%5C17%5Cbikepics-275360-full.jpg Now Honda goes the other direction and puts the most boring graphics on (L or R or CRF's) that I have ever seen.
