There are the obvious classics as mentioned above from Mr Quinn and Oliver,but i think since Doug joined he really has brought some great riffs and really made a big difference to the modern Saxon sound.His riffs for Searching for Atlantis(Lionheart)and Valley of the Kings(Labrinth) are just monstrous.

this one is impossible ,saxon have got so many great riffs, i do love the old ones especially on strong arm of the law ad power and the glory albums , but when saxon go heavier like on travellers in time , man and machine , justice , song of evil , need for speed , thats brilliant , and the fast stuff like let me feel your power and valley of the kings

i would say princess of the night, but also 747 or wheels of steel in their simplicity make you happy!

'Atila The Hun' is a good one, so is 'I've got to rock to stay alive'

Lionheart (the main chorus riff) is my fave

Dogs Of War, OK not the best Saxon riff but still bloody good, always gets over looked.
