Any recommendations on a first bike?

Recommended Posts

I know that this question has been asked 10 million times, but I am 13, 4'11", 90 pounds and have very limited experience on dirt bikes. Will ride mostly trail and that kind of thing, definitely no racing. I have about $1,300-$1,500 so obviously no where new. 4 stroke is what I have been thinking about, but would you recommend a 2 stroke? As for brands, I really don't care as long as it isn't a Chinese knockoff/ pit bike. Thank you very much.

I started on a crf150f, its bullet proof. You can ride it until you want something more powerful or maybe if you one day decide you wanna try a track

I'd offer him $1,100-$1,200. Then I'd use the extra for a good chain, sprocket, maybe tires (depending on what they look like for wear), and if you care about plastic find a good cheap new set on Ebay.

CRF150F is a good bike, but it is too tall and too heavy for you at 4' 11".  Look for KLX140 (not the L version), TTR125E (not the L version), CRF100F/CRF80F, DRZ-125 (not the L version)
