A TTR 125 is not the bike for you. At that height and weight, you are going to grow out of it in a few days, and be completely bored of it. Not to mention extremely cramped.

Perhaps a little more information will help us decide the perfect bike for you. What other types, and where are you going to be riding? Any experience with dirtbikes in the past? Price range?

A good trail riding bike is the Kawasaki KDX 200. Look into that as well.
