Hello all, first of I would like to say this is an awesome site! It is very hard these days to find a good community on the internet. I am a Mountain Biker and decided to try riding with a motor ;) I weigh about 230lbs and I am 5'8. As you can tell from the topic I am on somewhat of a budget for my 'first' bike. I heard that I should go with a 400 or so, but not sure if that is true. I want to be able to do trails and some MotoX. I have no problem buying a bike that is a few years old. After reading all of these threads about 4-strokes, should I try to find one? Or stick with a 2-stroke? I am a complete newbie when it comes to this, so bare with me please.
