Hey everyone,
Im in the process of getting a new bike and was looking at two strokes due to the lower prices (money is an issue). i ride lots of fields, some trails , some tracks, and i jump alot. ive ridden a 250f of my uncles, and my friends 80. Im thinkin a 125 would be good, but i heard the 250(2 smoke) is WAY better on trails because of the low end and less babying. I currently own a XR200(wich nearly breaks my ankles on jumps) :) im 6ft, 150lbs, 16yrs old, and pretty strong. ive never ridden a 125 or a 250.....would i kill myself on a 250? :eek:

No, just have to learn throttle control!! Either a 125 or 250 is going to suprise you...

You're a good size/weight for a 125, but they really need some porting to be anything but useless in the woods. That being said you could pick up say a 96ish 125 and have eric gore port it.
