ive been looking at a few 99,00,01 Rm 125's for around $2000, would a 125 be to small for me/ out grow too fast?

But ya, im Thinking a 95-02 250 would be the best bet, thats what my friends have been telling me latley

jaco12, for a begginer ridding a 250 is alot easier then a 125 because of the extra bottom end power. The 99 RM125 is a great bike and has a good amount of bottom end power considering the size. Its all up to you.
