I ran across this thread while looking around for a dirtbike for my wife. She's only ridden a couple of mini bikes so I wanted to get something easy for her to ride.
I had a BW80 as a kid. I had a ton of fun on it. It was my first dirtbike. I rode it so much I wore out the top end. My dad liked it well enough that later on he found himself a TW200. I'm glad I found this post. It brought a big grin to my face to see these bikes again. I'm glad to see they still have a following. I'm kinda jonesing for a BW350 myself now. I'd really like to ride that ATC250r missle. Maybe we'll find my wife a BW200 to ride.
