They both look in good shape. Go take a look at both and make your decision. The XR's are bulletproof and last forever as long as they are cared for. The TTR looks to be in a little better shape.

Thanks for the info. Im going to try and see them this week. The e start would be good for her, didnt think about that. I know the xr250r is tricky to start. Dont know if the 200 has the auto decomp.

The xr200 doesn't have starting issues like the 250. I had a 96 and it was one of the most reliable and easy to start bikes. Me and several other friends rode that thing for years. We couldn't kill it.

Tough choice have you looked at the TW200. A woman at work had one and rode the heck out of it.
