    Picked up 3 new ones this past Spring. 2017 Honda CRF250-Rally......2017 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT....and a 2017 Honda CMX500 Rebel (for my wife)

    None of them look like these pictures now, as they have spent the Summer and Fall getting dressed up for next years' riding. :-) 250 Rally 001.JPG IMG_20170511_125946616.jpg Rebel 500 ABS 031.JPG
