I've been wanting to get back into to dirt bikes for about 2 years now. I finally have 2 grand saved up. My dad needs to build his credit, so he said that he would pay the rest of the money for the bike I want. The only place that we found that will accept his sucky credit is a Local kawasaki dealer. I was looking around and they have no 100's or 125's. They have mostly street bikes and mules. They do have a KLX300, KLX250, and aKX250. I'm 6'1" and 168 lbs. I love 2 strokes but I don't want to have to re-build it every year, and I don't think the 2t are going to like the woods. So I kinda narrowed it down between the 300 and the 250. Lets just say I NEED power. I can't stand being the one not being able to do the hill climb or win a straight race. My friends have a YZ85, CRF150, and a honda 300EX. I'd say the 85 is the the fastest, but its a 2 stroke and the kid wrecks every 5 seconds. I heard the 250 lacks power really bad. This will be MY first bike in 2 years. But I've still been riding every once in awhile.
