I am planning on bying a dirt bike for riding around the ranch. I will be using it around trees, grass and lots of mud during the raining season. I want something good and confortable for my size. I am only 5.64 feet and I would like to reach the ground since some dirt bikes are very high. I like medium size dirt bikes because they look easy to handle. I like speed and I think I will use some power once that I get used to the bike. If some adjustements will be needed like suspension, please advice.

8) Do you have a dealer close by your home that you might use and what brand(s) does he carry? Yamaha, Honda, Susuki.
9) How much ($) do you plan to spend on a bike? I would like to spend around $5,000 but I can go higher.
10) Do you live in California? No, Mexico.
