Newbie Here General Questions

Recommended Posts

I am pretty new to dirt bikes! I am 5' 8" tall and weight about 170. I am looking at getting a 110cc to play around on some trails with. I dont have a ton of money to spend $600 basically and I want to get something that can get up hills.

The bikes I am looking at are linked below

Freedom 993 Model

806 Model

DB-807

or should I just spend an extra 40 or 50 bucks and get this

I am also debating on the semi-auto or manual and which would be better since I have no real experience in both. I want a bike that is gonna last for a little while and something I won't get tired of to quickly. Any advice would help!

If i were you i would buy a bicycle.

Seriously for your weight and height a bike like those is gonna put around.

Adn i dont conmsider that as fun.

Besides this is an expensive sport i have spent more money on ridinhg gear than what you expect on spending on a bike.

Have you considered gas, oil, manteinence costs?

Hell my mountain bike costs 3 times more your spending limit

Seriously I would not buy any of those, as I've heard (yes only heard) that those cheapo Chinease bikes are total crap. You will not get much use out of it before it's dead. Do some searching around and find a used dirtbike in that range. You can certainly find something better than those for that price used.
