I'm going to buy a brand new bike. it will be my 1st, and at the young age of 37! i have been on and around bikes, but I'm not even close to experienced. I'm 6'2 185#'s. I'm getting this to start putting around with my 6yr old, whom is probably a better rider than me! I'm not going to be hitting the motocross track, but who's to say i may not grow a set in the next few years, lol... it will be used on our property which is 1/2 open 1/2 trees. we may hit some tree trails nearby some-times, and who knows what else. i guess I'm looking for a nice all around bike that i won't get bored of when the day comes that I'm feeling confident. i want to have fun, but also want to see my kids grow old any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!!! oh, btw, if you ask why ktm... no reason other than i really like the color and way they look, and a good friend of mine is a manager at the local dealer.
