What bike did you ride before?  Did the serious crash occur on your motorcycle?

What type of riding do you intend to do?  Tracks, offroad/enduro, hare scramble, trails, combination of them?

How long have you been out of riding? 250 two strokes and 450s have a lot of power, which might not be good if you've been out of it for a while. A 250f or 125 2t would be a bit more tame. I weigh around 160 and my 07 yz250f hauls me around plenty fast and climbs any hill I put it up to. If you plan on buying a used bike off craigslist or something, most people will let you test ride it for a bit, so you can try out a bike and decide for yourself if you think you can handle the power.
