What bike should I get?

Recommended Posts

I started riding a few months ago. Currently I ride a ttr 230 yamaha, but I want to start riding motocross this spring. My dad suggested a 125cc, I am not sure what bike to get. I weigh about 130 lbs, i am about 5'10" and still growing. 15 year old beginner rider. I usually ride trails and on gravel roads at ohv areas.

I am 32 now but when I was 15 I was a on KX 250 2 stroke. I went for an 80 to a 250. I was close to your height but probably about 10 lbs heavier. I loved the 250t I rode a 125 once as a kid and gave it back because I didn't like the lack of bottom end grunt. If you go a 2 stroke route you can always tame the 250 2t down with a flywheel weight from what I hear. I have never used one though. Riding a 125 can teach you how to keep momentum and be a better rider. A 250f is a good bike for a beginner. I currently ride a 450 and love it. I think you should try them all and see what you like. The biggest thing is what makes you happy.
