Looking for my First Bike

I have rode ATV's all my like and now want a dirt bike. I have also had some experience on a motorcycle. From looking, i want either a 250 four stroke or a 125 two stroke, what would be the better option for me? I am 16, 5'8" and 165 lbs I will be riding on the farm with open trails through the woods and some time at our local track.

 

Thank you 

What's your budget for the bike?

Up to $3500

i would get a 250 four stroke at 5'8" and 165 lbs the 125 might be a little small also look at the ktm 150sx or the ktm 150xc they are both 2 strokes and they are great beginner bikes they would be a little better than a 250f for a first bike.

125. Cheaper to buy, maintain, fix and more fun.

That's where I was going with my budget question. $3500 will buy you a nice bike either way.

I only asked because if you said $1500 or something I'd probably go for the 2 stroke.

Okay, does it matter on brands or is it just "Pick a Color"

Pick the best shape, most well looked after bike in your price range. Pretend they're all the same colour, the differences aren't much. There were a few early 250f's (2004 RMX/KFX) that were absolute duds but 125 technology has been developed for years and they're all neck and neck with each other.
