singling out one riff out of the oceans of great ones is silly, but i'll play along:

Fire on the Mountain, live GD, that intro lick/solo/lead riff is just the most impressive vehicle to jam with, it never fails to take you in hours of new directions

Its definetely the the riff in the begin of Captain Beefhearts Moonlight on Vermount (right after the drumbos amazing drum fill).

Somebody asks what is riff. I think it is something that is very often played by guitar and repeating many times. There could be just one sound at the time or chords. But normal "backchords" are not riff, in riff chords change quite fast.

some of my fav beefheart riffage is at the beginning sweet sweet bulbs and at 1/4 way into safe as milk!

fav riff at this very moment is picture book by the stinks as I've just figured it out, simple, but catchy. one of those riffs that are most naturally plucked out from the easy layout of a guitar tuned in standard.

neil young is a master with riff chords, e.g., 'been waiting for you' and 'cinnamon girl' instantly come to mind.
