picked it up today. the back shock is blown and plastic is there. but it runs strong and starts first kick (more than i can say about the other bikes i have sitting around) tires are great. i jumped on it after have 2 or 3 bikes sold out from under me from craigslist. but was really wanting a 250. but i think this bike fits me better (5'6") 160lbs. doesn't put the fear of god in me like a good 250 can. ( haven't rode much lately, first running bike in 3 years) it looks tough, allthough it doesn't have the stikers, it's just black and white. but it is almost 14 years old. $800 seams like a good deal to have some good fun. but in the dirtbike market was that reasonable?????????? will ride it on bad shock till i have the money to replace, no big deal..
