Thanks. When I was your age I had 0 bikes and $0 to my name. I had dreams all growing up I would have bikes. Better late than never. I still feel like a kid on them.

2004 KX125: Bored to 144, sounds amazing thanks to a PC pipe and silencer combo, absolutely amazing engine for a smallbore two stroke thanks to an awesome port job by a guy who is unfortunately no longer in the business. I'm trying to sell it. I'll be sad to see it go as I've improved a lot as a rider in the time I've had it.

2006 YZ250: only have a few hours on this bike but here's what I've noticed so far: handling, ergos, light weight, sound, *does best Jeremy Clarkson impression* POWERRRRR!

1982 Yamaha Yz 250 - work in progress restoration

1995 Honda CR 500 - Set up for the dunes only

2004 Honda XR 650R - HRC Power Kit, my dual sport ride

2009 KTM 250 XCW - My dez racing sled

1985 Honda V65 Sabre - reliving my past! cool bike

2004 BMW K1200RS - 2 up with the wife.

2001 Kawasaki ZRX 1200 - just sold, looking for something covered in fiberglass and fun.

All of these bikes are used for their strong points. CR 500 kills the dunes, XR is a dual sport and open desert dream, KTM is an awesome bike for racing, nice and light and kills the 4 strokes in the tight stuff. The sabre was fast in it's day, it's a cruiser by today's standards. The BMW is pure luxury and the wife loves riding on it, she falls asleep (not good). The ZRX is the Eddie Lawson replica that is totally cool, but I wanted something different after riding it, so I'm looking for a CBR or a GSXR, just to go cruise the canyons in the am.

1. 09 KTM 250 sx set up for woods racing. Does everything well in the woods. Adjustable power for any condition, and great suspension (after revalve) that is almost maintenance free (no linkage). Stone reliable. Clean the air filter every now and then, and just ride.

2. 04 RM 125. No dirt bike is as fun as a 125 (any brand). If you don't own one, you are missing out big time.

03 RM 250 I use for woods racing/ riding and MX. The RM is my sports car, for high performance riding. It's not much like an 03, more like a 12 as I just finished completely rebuilding it.

07 WR450 for fire/ logging roads, long cruises, exploring. The WR is my pickup truck.

KTM 200 Light and fun 2 stroke.

XR400 is easy to ride, bulletproof and plush on the rocks.

Montessa 315R Trials bike. Hell of a workout and makes me ride the above bikes better,

Rokon 2x2 Trailbreaker Does not need a trail so it's great for exploring new areas.
