Any help will be appreciated!! THC!

For the type of riding you stated above, there is only one brand that is the dominating off-road bike & that's KTM!

I would look for a good used KTM 200 EXC-MXC or if your a big guy like me, look for a 300 EXC-MXC.

That's the type of riding that these bike were built for. I've heard of guy's still riding their KTM 200/300's that they bought back in 2000!

Take a look here.

he should buy my 06 YZ250. It already has the GYTR offroad flywheel, 51 tooth rear sprocket, v-force 3, Devol radiator guards and skid plate. see for sale section. It's a great trail/play bike

sorry could not resist. joe

I vote for Orange or Blue. Great history on both bikes and lots of parts interchangeable between the year models. They are the only companies left that are still developing 2 strokes and haven't given in to the political correctness movement. Most likely, my next bike will be one of these two.

If your dad is thinking about a brand new bike, it's YAMAHA hands down. If he is looking at bikes that are 2-3 years old or older, I don't think it really matters much. Find one in good shape and well taken care of and have fun.

Not good bikes?

Kawi makes great bikes and so does Yama.

I never been a fan of suzuki or honda. Thats just me though.

They both are great pick a color and ride.

The ladies like GREEN though.

I personally like honda the most, i just find that kawasaki's arent very reliable.
I have a friend with an 06 KX 85 and it cant stay together.
