So Im pretty much brand new to the sport. Im 5'11'' 180lbs and have very little bike experience but Ive been freeride and downhill mountian biking for a long while and can handle a bike well. Anyway, a good friend of mine is offering me his '96 KX250 with reworked suspension and some other stuff and all the gear for $800. I know its a powerful bike and would be hard to learn on, but impossible? Any advice?
