    Checking in from Poconos PA

    A newbie to the site and back into it after 30+ years off these damn things!

    This madness started in 1983 when my neighbor got a new 200s........ I was only 14 and totally hooked on it! Needless to say the next year I was able to buy a 1985 200x off the showroom floor (with some financial support from the parents!) and enjoyed riding the piss out of it! The following year, a 250R found its way into the garage......

    Fast forward to 2019 and I recently picked up an '85 250R for $1100 and put $200 into it so far......gotta love a good deal and being quick on CL! Anyway, I guess it's a "mid life" crisis at 49???? But what a blast to ride around! I'm hooked once again and now on the prowl for a 200x! This is addicting and i'm sure this site will help fuel the desire! So far this place is a wealth of info, looking forward to picking your brains and perhaps linking up with locals for some riding......I'm very familiar with the coal region.

    Before & after pics attached.......

    Welcome to the site! Great story and thanks for sharing! That's a good deal for an 85 250r especially on the east coast.

    Welcome to the site buddy! Once ATC's are in your blood, you can't get them out. I'm 22 and I grew up on them. All my life, there has always been an ATC in the garage. That is a steal for the price and condition! You cleaned it up good so far.

    Welcome. I did see an issue with your post. It may be your midlife, but I couldn't find a hint of a crisis! Enjoy!
