So I have been riding street for five years now and have around 30k miles under my belt. I have ridden 600c crotch rockets mainly, but for the last year I have been riding a 98 Sportster 1200c with some power mod s. I have limited dirt experience in tight trails riding 125ccs in eastern Massachusetts on hard packed viny dirt where the mountain bikers go. What I am looking for: Something not exceeding 3500, that would be good for the type of riding we have in eastern MA. There are some sand pits and trails. One that is easily accesible to me is very narrow and riddle with vines, its a popular spot for mountain bikers, there are some big drops and they have built a number of those narrow ramps they hit. I'm looking for a bike that could handle the local terrain, be jumped to some degree (maybe 10 or so feet of air) and wont be unmanageable on the roads. I dont have a truck so I would have to ride to the trails. I'd also like to be able to go to some of the local dirt tracks in NH and Maine, my sister lives up in Maine so I have put some thought into leaving it up there some times so that I can spend my weekends riding up there. I would transport it to Maine rather than ride it. I wouldnt mind a dirt bike registered with a street title, I could always get a pair of road oriented tires for commuting. I would ideally like to sell my harley because I have decided that it doesnt suit my riding style. So I would also use the bike for my 10 minute city commute which includes a mile or two of highway miles. Ideally the bike would be able to handle steady RPMs for occasional 30-40 mile highway rides. I am 5'10, 140 Lbs, and 23 years old, I dont really mind a rough ride, I just want something that will be oriented toward dirt but capable of road riding. It is pretty hard/ expensive to title a DB for street use in MA so I would probably want to buy a used one that was titled in NH to avoid the added cost. I am definitely selling the Harley, so I will need to commute on the bike but I seriously dont mind the ride being rough because my commute is so short. I am selling the Harley because I was recently cut off at 45 MPH in the middle of a corner at night, and had to swerve right into a big pile of sand, causing the rear wheel to lose grip, resulting in a low side crash. I broke my wrist in two places, but the bike is fine other than a small dent/rash in the rear fender, rear break lever snapped of, drag bars may have a small bend and there is road rash on the brake fluid res. I was planning on selling the bike at the end of the summer for a sport bike anyways and since I'm going to be off the road for a month I just want to make the repairs and sell it. Now I am thinking I should get a dirtbike instead and the sport bike in spring. Thoughts?
