The Honda XR's used to be the ducks guts for trail bikes... though I have to say that the Yamaha WRF's and the KTM four bangers have well and truly taken the mantle.

Sadly it appears that everyone wants bang for their bucks, in doing so they appear to have lost the reliability side of bikes. Lets face it the XR was no lightweight, but it was reliable as all get out! They were ridden by everyone from first timers through to gaining first place in the Australian Safari and everything in between.

There are fewer and fewer around these days, which is a shame. But those that are around appear to be used by first timers.

Top thread fella's!
