OK for all you trivia buffs out there, let's see what you know.

1. What year is this bike?
2. Who was the rider?
3. Who was his mechanic?
4. Which company did the graphics for Team Honda that year?
5. Is this the first year for the Team Honda 18 wheeler?
6. What national number did this rider earn for the following year?

Let's see what you got.

Dogger might be saving face on this error
1999 Honda CR250 Factory Honda. The only riders on the motocross team were: Ezra Lusk, Sebastien Tortelli, Mickael Pichon, and Windham. Its Lusk's bike. Lusk had gone on from #4 to #11... easy question. Lusk still uses #11.

The rest is history. Carmichael was wrapping up his 125 domination, and would go to Honda next to the 250's. LOL. I grew up watchin moto since 85. Although I missed some years in between.

Ok, I have a question: there was another team racing under the honda brand that year. What was it called and who were the riders, which rider was the youngest? What bikes were they riding?

Plano Honda was a satellite team, and you are on the right track....

A little trivia while I am finishing up the CR right now is so fitting- its an 02- The one Carmichael won his 24/24 with. Except his was a fire breather!

OK, the results are in. One person identified the correct rider and
nobody got any of the others.

This is a picture of Steve Lamson's supercross bike from 1997. The
picture was taken in the Honda pit at the 1997 Hangtown National.
Good job! Mugen CR250 (The supercross size rear sprocket should
have been a hint.)

Lamy was the defending 125 National champion that year displaying
the number 1 plate outdoors, but raced the 250 class in supercross.
McGrath had moved to Suzuki leaving Lamson as Honda's lead 250
Supercross rider. His mechanic was Mike "goose" Gosselaar.

This was also the last year for the 100% graphics as Honda hired
Throttle Jockey in '98.

The Honda big rig premiered in 1996 replacing the ubiquitous box vans.

Lamy was unsuccessful defending his number one plate losing many
points sitting out four rounds with an injury. He earned national number
17 for '98 with 342 points while Ricky Carmichael won the championship
as a rookie.

easy question.
That might mean more if you had got it right.

What's funny is that you tried to put it off as Carmichael's bike. I knew it looked to old, obvious. Lusk did ride a bike identical to that, with the same #. Lamson's 250 attempts were pretty fruitless. So my guess was as good as anyone.

Im still laughing though.

You never answered my question though dogger. You still searching the internet for the answer?

IMHO, there is no 'best year' of the CR...it should be the 'best parts from what years to build the best CR'. It would be something like an '05-newer chassis/suspension, '01 motor, '99 Keihin carb, etc...and you'd still have to buy a decent aftermarket chain.

It really all depends on how you ride. Im pretty damn fast on a CRF50. LOL
Unless you are racing for money and a living, the argument is pretty stale IMHO.
These bikes are fast, if you can ride.

This comes in handy when clearing big jumps but by the last moto's of the day it really wears you out. The last generation CR's handle very well and I believe the power output is very under estimated. Just my opinion from owning and racing 7 different models over the years.
Love my 06 CR 250 as well Pro Circuit pipe Phathead JD jet kit and 100 octane

I like my 1998 Cr250r it is a very fast bike and is very reliable but the suspension needs alot of work it is very stiff but other then that the bike is unbeatable. Also I have heard good things about the 01 Cr250r but I have never rode one so I don't much about them, other then that the suspension was good on them and that the bike has alot of power and not very sluggish.

I have ridden a number of CR's in my day not specifically 250's, however for the sake of this argument I have ridden a 1998 GREAT bike a 1996 even better than the 1998 IMHO. The best I rode and liked for overall was a 1986 with the rear shock replaced with a white.

Fast great forks handled good just all around great bike. I really don't think any one CR could ever be declared a winner because all of them do something better than the other.

I have to say the forks on the 1986 were head and shoulders above anything I have ridden since .... stock....

Thanks
Scott
