Beserker, sweet that sounds good!
Ya i saw a 1984 XT 600 for about the same price like the TTR 250, but I think i'll be happy with a TTR in the beginning :)
But is it not difficult to maintain a XT600? Its a reliable bike but theere are so many things to think about :D

Is it generally easier to find parts for a XT 600, then for a TTR 250? :)
