80 or 85 2-smoker which is best?

sold my brother's '97 YZ250 for him and I'm gonna take the cash to buy his son an 80 or 85 2-smoker.

there are all major brands available in my area and all are around the same price. So with all things even (which they are) which is the better brand? (of course condition, etc. with play a role but you get my point).
There seems to be more KX85s available but I can get KTM, YZ, RM, CR, KX.

surprised to you put the CR ahead of a YZ according to your parts theory. I guess Honda has a lot of CRs out there though for sure!

Kx85 was the one to beat back then wasn't it? You can pick one up on the cheap too

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."
