Yesterday marked my 5 month ACL surgery mark. I get to start back riding soon. I'm definitely looking at getting a 2 stroke this time. I have a couple questions first. I'm looking for 250's only, I'm too big for a 125 (5'11" about 190-195lbs). Also, I'm looking for the best years of all the models.
I want to be sure of all the years I should be looking for:
Honda 2005-2007 ( I know most of you don't like honda but I do and it's the preferred choice) Not many good deals to be found on these though.
Yamaha 2005/2006 and up (not sure what year up the best bike started)
Suzuki 2004 and up
KTM When did the best years start?
Kawasaki no idea what years and this is my least favorite choice.
The above bikes are listed in order of importance to me. Shit, I'm ready to ride!!
Thanks for the help guys,
P.S. I have nothing against 4 strokes and would love an 08 CRF450 but a little out of my used price range which is around $2500 at most.
