1) your physical size (both height and weight are important)
I am 6' 2" 200lbs

2) How physical / aggressive are you ?
Moderate. I'm looking to have fun but not kill myself. 6-7 maybe?

3) what do you plan to ride- MX/SX tracks, woods, fields with friends or ?????
Mainly trails, woods, fields, the odd track

4) Do you have any riding experience?
Yes about 25+ hours on backwoods trails on my buddy's 1978 250 2 stroke enduro. Fun but a bit of a dog as far as power goes. Just got my learner's permit for street riding.

5) Do you think you will race ?
No racing

6) Are you mechanically inclined and will you be doing your own bike work?
Yes, I do all my own work to my car.

7) Do YOU have a preferance to a brand/ motor choice (2 or 4 stroke)?
No preference. I'm hoping you guys will tell me which engine to buy.

8) Do you have a dealer close by your home that you might use and what brand(s) does he carry?
The major brands are available.

9) How much ($) do you plan to spend on a bike?
I'm looking to spend approx. $2,000 on a used bike.

10) Do you live in California?
No, Canada.

11) Your age?
30 years.

12) Anything else?

I am looking for something with power but nothing absolutely crazy. I am hoping to buy something that will last me a few years and not have to upgrade for want of power. I am looking at getting a 250. Should I buy a 2 or 4 stroke, that is one of my major questions. I'm operating under the assumption that a 125 two stroke be too small and slow.
