kawasaki baja 1000?


Recommended Posts

probably the kx500. its a CRAZY bike and was the the ruler in the desert, track, or woods back in the day. My dad has had 2 or 3 and he takes decent older ones and turns them into modern looking bikes with all the nic nacs. he is racing enduro with one now and it is keeping up

A lot has to do with the riders ability...you say "back then"...how far back are you referring too?

Husky ruled the desert before anyone but that had to do (a lot) with who's riding them...Look it up and you'll see it's a who's who in desert racing, Al MArtinez, the 2 Dan's, Smith and Ashcraft, Roeseler, Malcolm Smith the list is endless...much of this had to do with what bikes (factories) were competing. Destry Abbott started racing on a Kawasaki and was real good...I'm sure if you strapped him onto a cr500 he'd have won on that too! As for Kawasaki being a big winner "back then/moto race"...that's a hard one to figure when you had the Marty's (Smith and Tripes) and a long list of Honda riders that always won. Lackey ad Ward were really the only big winners on a Kawasaki...Kawasaki is making a huge come back not because of the bike but because they've re-entered and signed on some really good talent.....
