I'm just curious to see what everyone's steps of ownership were before actually owning their R. What machines did you have before owning one? What machines do you own now?

I started off when I was 6. Here's my rides in chronological order.

Past
- Yamaha Moto-4
- Yamaha YZ80
- Yamaha Blaster
- Honda 250X
- Suzuki LT250R

Present
- TRX250R B)
- LSR Project :D

I had an................

ATC 70
ATC 125
ATC 200X
Occasionally rode an 81' ATC 250R and an 85' ATC 250R that were both my Dad's

And my current 88' TRX250R. I've had it for about 12 years now. I was actually looking for an ATC 250R when I found my R. It was real clean and had minor engine work. Most of the ATCs I found were pretty beat up. Glad I went to 4 wheels.

Fist was my grandfathers Suzuki LT185

Then my dad helped my brother and I get a 1998 Warrior. My dad still has it, hence the rack


Then a 1989 Banshee in 2000


I replaced most of the parts in 2003..


In 2005 i got my (white) 250R!



The next winter I built it into this.


And the next year some small changes


Then this past November I saw the light and got this!

Started on a 2002 xr80

Then I jumped on to a 2004 CR85 (hence my user name)

Then i sold her and bought the 1988 250r

Then i missed bikes so i saved a little and put a down payment on a 2006 CRF205R

and thats where Im at now. Although i want to sell the CRF and get a CR250.
