I tried many bikes but not too much experiance, I'm almost the same in terms of age-weight-height..but I'm quite agressive :laugh:

I'll probably(98%) get a Kawasaki KX125 on this saturday, if I like it I will tell you.. I love light bikes, it's much more fun than the heavier ones. The bad thing is that they have bad low-end power and they're not durable to sustained high rpm ridings. But I think that wouldnt be a problem, just shift up and that's it ;)

I dont know much about bikes right now but I asked a few weeks ago and i was suggested a 125 2 stroke or a 250f. Brand does not really matter they said. I am exactly the same height and weight as you but I am younger. The 2 stroke 125 will be cheaper than the 250 and it will make you a better rider.

capitancrack, i third the 125 2 stroke suggestion. I think you would like it much more thn your DT in the suspension department and top end area, but the bottom end is scares. Just dont fall off the pipe.
