Hi everyone.Im 5'6 and weigh 260 lbs.I wanna start dirtbiking but dont wanna drain my wallet.I want something that will let me trail ride as well as some jumps (Nothing major 4-6 ft tops).I live in Northeastern pennsylvania.I,ve been looking in papers for the past week for used bikes and i cant seem to find a bike for myself. I am currently looking for a kawasaki KLX300. Nowhere to be seen used here in pennsylvania. There is a part shop down the road from me (LITERALLY!).They are heavily dirt orientated.Im looking for a 4 stroke.In the range of $1,000 to $2,500.I will not get the bike untill mid summer.(about late june early july.) Im 15 yrs old btw.Ur input will be very much appreciated by me. :nod: :) :p

Fill that out ^^

But i would say a 125 2-stroke. It would pull you around pretty well. And its a good beginner biek for that size. Or a KDX220 its a 2-stroke to but it made for trals and has the charisterics of a 4-stroke.

But if you want a 4-stroke there is the KLX300 It will be a good beginner bike. Along with the CRF230 or TTR230. But besides those bikes you not going to find any other decient 4-strokes in that price range. Even used. Maby a CRF250X or WR250F if you get lucked for $2,500...

Oh yeah you could always go and find a used XR250 or somthing it is a 4-stroke and you can get the pretty cheap. And there really string to.

WEll, i tried looking for one around my area (KLX300) and cant seem to find ANY fourstroke under $3,500. I asked 2 of my friends that already ride about which bike to get for me and they gave me the same exact answer u gave me.(Bikes and all!) :nod:

Is there any place to ride up there? I want to teach my two sons how to ride but can't find any place to take them in Annville PA (outside of Hershey)
