Everyone has to start somewhere ... mine was in 1973 w/ my first real dirtbike ... Honda 1973 XR-75 ... been a XR lover every since ... this pic was taken in Danbury, Texas at Oak Tree MX Park ... what's weird is I now live 2 miles from there and have my own private MX track in my back yard ... 1 mile long, 17 jumps, woops section, 1 over & under ... getting ready to expand to an Enduro Cross part w/ lots of obstacles ... most of our neighborhood races TXORR Hare Scramble Series so having a place to practice anytime day or night is awesome ... anyone living close is more than welcome to hook up w/ me and ride ... send me a Private Message and we will go from there ... I am now 52 years old and love this sport even more

Share with us your first bike and how you started out.

I'm going to let this old PK rot! I parted it out back in 2007 when I had to sweep the garage.

Take a look at the prices people are asking for these on Ebay. I think you have something of value there buddy.

Me-I would find a xr100 and drop it in and ride it.
I think it is a cool bike-but if you are just going to let it rot,
why not just let me have it and I will drop a motor in it and ride it.

I too grew up on XR's and still love them! I started on a Q50, then 78 XR75,then a brief time on a 79 RM125 and burned it up riding it like a 4 stroke. Knew I never wanted a 2 stroke again!! 80 XL185,84 XR250R, 87 XR250R, 86XR600R, 91XR600R, 96XR400R (All time favorite XR!)07 XR650R, 05 XR650L. Then went to the CRFR's and X's, 450's and 250's. Lost count on how many of those I've owned. LOL! Sorry to say I went Blue in the last few years with a YZ250FX because Honda Didn't offer a cross country bike. They do now whit there RX model! Waiting for the 250RX in 18 to come out. I still have a 90 XR250R with a 260 kit and a bunch of other mods. Used it to race the double decade class in the TORCS series. I also just finished rebuilding a 84 XR500R with a ton of extras. It's going to be my dual sport bike. See pics. Sorry could down load but one bike pic because there too big.
