Here I go-

10.1969 Hodaka Ace 100 - the bike that started it all.
  9.2001 Honda CR250 - a very nice bike before Honda wrecked it.
  8.1978 Ducati 900 SS - work of art (I know it's a 4T).
  7.1981 Suzuki RM250 - game changer.
  6.1975 CZ 250 Falta Replica - ancient but the motor still feels modern.
  5.1992 Honda CR250 - Honda are you listening?
  4.2011 KTM 250SX - how do you spell trick?
  3.1986 Maico GS500 - Ahead of it's time.
  2.1979 Sachs GS250 - Gold medal anyone?
  1.1981 Maico MC490 - The King.

Ha, I had the 2001 cr250 on my list, then I thought the better handling 06 was a better choice.

2001 Honda CR250s were the last of the piston port/reed induction. ;D

Yep, why I listed it first before I switched it to the 06. It also made the most power out of all the cr250's. Trx250r riders rob the flywheel and stator from these bikes to get a better power delivery out of the 250r motors.

The March or April issue of Motorcyclist magazine has an article on how Rex Staten's brother is taking 00 and 01 CR250 motors and installing them in the 06 CR125 chassis.The bikes are then given a blood red bodywork treatment ala the Marty Smith specials from the 70's and boy does the final product look nice.I wonder how many Honda could sell if they took on the project?

9- 82 YZ490
8- 78 Indian 100 (First bike)
7- 81 YZ465
6- 85 CR500
5- 87 CR500
4- 84 CR250 (Fast as a big bore in it's time)
3- 83 CR125 (best handling ever at least in my small mind)
2- 85 CR250 (actually wore one out and bought a second to finish the season)
1- 08 YZ250 (already raved too much on this site abought tis one)

Oh yeah, #9 is a joke. The 82 490 weighed more than my van.
08 373 Fuzion Toyhauler
1 wife, 2 kids, 1 dog
A lot of toys
A map and a credit card
A lot of memories no one can take away
