Don't choose by brand. Buy the bike that you can get the best deal on, and be sure to consider dealer support in your decision. All the bikes will give you tons of enjoyment, and they all need some personalization to make them best suit you.

I have some experience and I am not worried about that. I would get a 2002 model, but I am also thinking about a KX100 since it is my first 2 stroke and i probably wont be too big on motorcross.

A KX 100 is an excellent bike. I suggest you go sit on one, and also sit on a 125. If the KX 100 is a better size for you, then by all means go for it. You won't be dissapointed.

I would recommend you get a 1980 PE175T. This will teach you an appreciation of how far bikes have come & stop us (I don’t believe I’m calling us old) folks from becoming jealous.

13 with a 2002 model -Sheesh!

Didn’t get my PE till I was 16,
& it was 2nd hand,
& I had to go halves with a friend to afford it.

mumble mumble gripe.


Oh no!, I’ve become my father!!!:scream: :scream:

Don't worry, Dave. Lots of us old guys had to ride Rube Goldberg rats for years. :)

They are both good.

What color do you like? Green or Blue?

I agree with spnaky make sure you will have a good dealer to deal with it makes all the difference in the world. As for brand its all up to you but you must realize that you will be making some personal changes to your future bike.

:think

suspension, maybe bars (depends if you want a different bend), maybe a porting job by eric gorr... the suspension is a must to be personalized, if you dont have it done your bike could buck you off or sag really low.....
