the best KX i ever rode was a 96250 there was no chopper like feeling it was set to the riders weight and im lighter than him and it was still comfortable and responsive. if i ever wanted a KX id consider buying that 1. the worst bike ive ever ridein from 99 till now would have to be the 2001 wr426 bulky peice of junk in my books but then again im not a 4-stroke fan

That was funny

I have been on a Honda for many years. I find myself sitting on one for a while I like the feel of them.

Ok on to the bikes. I have always rode Yamaha's and so has my dad. We still have his first bike which was also my first bike. A 1974 yamaha jt1 60. I guess I will take almost anything as long as I get to ride. I like my current Yz 125 but I'm looking forward to upgrading to a 250f or 450f. But I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

Bikes- Yamaha
Snowmobiles- Polaris (would be Yamaha if the 4 strokes weren't so much heavier)
Trucks- Ford (though it used to be Chevy)

And yes I am brand loyal, so long as a brand isn't letting me down (hence my switch from Chevy to Ford). Don't know why, I've always just liked Yamaha's the best. The only other breed of bike I've ever owned was Suzuki, and those were both back when my dad decided what I rode

I'm totally nuts on buying Honda's, with everything !!

Honda bikes, bicycle (not a true Honda though), mowers, rare Accord wagon and Acura MDX.

I'd have a 4stroke weedeater too but they were all recalled for seizing up (when you tilted them too long) and Honda never redesigned them and never sold them again, wish I had one though, just to collect and to show that even Honda, does screw up at times.

Off subject a bit, but my wifes 88 CRX SI was one great litte zippy car

I think that people who stick with a single brand are brain washed

Thats why I only ride Yamaha,

In the past 4 years I've had Hondas, Suzukis, Yamahas and now a Harley. I like what I like no matter what color it is. Why limit your options?

In the past we've had Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki. No loyalty here. What we have is probably determined by what we get the best deal on.

Most people buy what wins the shootout. Its all about color preference.

All the bikes are about equal. Comes down to rider.

Can't say I am brand Loyal but I seem to check out Honda's first. First Road bike at 16 was the nighthawk 650 and I rode that poor thing into the ground with a oil change once every 10000 mi. and never had one single issue. The inline 4, shaft driven, oil cooler was bullet proof. Then the 85 Sabre 1100 was the machine, then the Vmax so there was a slight switch, then the GSXer's came on to compete with the Ninjas but I stay Suz with the Busa. Then I slowed to the VTX 1800 wanted the big V twin but bought a Katana to have something to still play on. Only thing on dirt that I haven't went with was the RM's as they alway seemed to have some sort of oil issue.

Every Honda from Street to Dirt to Boat to Lawn mover and generator has run great. The valve thing I never had a problem with but I keep the air filter spotless and stay off the rev limiter. Never really had a problem with the 24mm off set myself.
My car is a Audi A6 twin Turbo though
I do like Sidi Boot....Sam;;

I suppose I'm brand loyal to Honda...have owned 9 bikes (including my son's) and my wife has driven an Accord and now a Pilot. When I was pondering getting back into riding last fall, I did look at a few YZ250Fs but found the deal on my CRF250 I couldn't resist. Back in the 70's & 80's I owned a Yamaha (DT enduro) and Kawasaki (aircooled KX125) that were good deals for me when I was a kid...never owned a Suzuki. Following are consumer items I'm "pretty much" brand loyal on....but price is always a consideration:

GM-Duramax/Allison (towing/reliability) but have owned a Toyota.
Goodyear or BFG tires
Justin boots
Folgers coffee, Edge shaving cream, Speedstick

Pretty much anything else...whatever my wife gets on sale!

I usually have a factory ride... so I just ride whatever I'm given you know.

I've been all over the place. Factory Yamaha, Facotry Kawasaki, Factory KTM, Factory Purple People Eater, and for now... I'm Factory Honda, so that's what brand I'm loyal to at the moment.

I'd just like to take this time to thank my sponsors: MaDad Factory Honda, ProCircuit Tires, Renthal Suspension, Factory Backing Goggles, Dunlop Engine Mods, and Alpinestar helmets (they had to pay me a looooot to wear their crappy stuff).

That's all for now... autographs later if you guys ask nicely enough...
