What bike have you always loved whether you have one or not, and why?
Is it because of memories of your youth, seeing your hero campaign one or just the trick look and graphics?
Mine has always been the Scott Summers Xr600r and probably the Ricky Carmichael kx125s.
With a close third being The McGrath Cr250s.

Clean look, great platform, great bike.



Last 125 factory 2-stroke.



Honorable mention because I always thought they were cool.

Not a dirt bike, but the look and the story behind this bike have it at #1 for me for a long time.

I don't know why, but when I was a kid I just thought this model CR was like the pinnacle of motocross bikes (03-07). Loved the way it looked and always drooled over it. Seeing RC destroy everybody on one probably didn't hurt.

Side Note - I still think the RM from this era looks good to this day

I tried to post earlier but one wouldn't load.

I always thought the works Honda's of Marty Smith and crew were mythical creatures that no mere mortals could ever own. Fast forward 35 years and this mere mortal stumbled upon one.

Marty in 1978



Today in the bat cave.

When I was maybe 8 or 9 my brother bought a 95 CR 250. I loved the purple but thought the 96’s looked even better. So the 95/96 Honda’s will forever be my favourite bikes

Pure unobtanium: While the stock CR125R was no powerhouse, there could be little doubt that Ronnie Lechien’s full works RC125 did not suffer from the same deficiencies. The arrival of the Production Rule in 1986 would put an end to such exotica here in America. Photo Credit: Dirt Bike
