A Look Back at 1987 Through the eyes of MXA

Comments (1)
  1. I just read this article and what a wonderful trip down memory lane. In 1987 I was selling my perfect condition 1985 CR 250R and was thinking about picking either the 1987 CR 250R or the 1987 KX 125. I procrastinated all year, but when I saw the early November issue showing that gorgeous 1988 CR 250R, I opened my wallet . The next month, I was at the Costa Mesa, Ca., kHonda/Yamaha dealership with I remember about $3400.00 cash. I bought that gorgeous bike without reading the reviews and the disappointment set in.

    Anyway, I believe and still believe that 1983 – 1989 was absolutely the Golden Age of motocross. Please keep these 80’s articles coming because there’s a huge group of us out there pining for theses terrific articles.

    Keep up the GREAT work!!
