Recommended Posts

Hey im 13 yrs old, 5'3", 130lbs. I have never owned a bike but rode my buddies RM125 and had to get a bike. I will ride in trails and an open field, maybe take it to the track once in awhile. i would perfer a 2-stroke. I would like a motocross bike, i don't want a trail bike that sucks. my neighbor has a blaster and i can keep up with the RM125 on it, so im not a sucky rider. I would probably buy a used bike so money is no issue.

hey welcome to this forum.

i am thinking of getting a 125 too, and since your the same age and same height as me can you easily touch the ground on the RM?

You might be a bit small for an RM125 at that height and weight. An 85 might be more your size right now. But you will probably outgrow it quickly at your age.

KX100 or CR85 big wheel might be good too.

Good to know. I've got a big 12 year old who is about your size and he has the same issue with my YZ250F. It's too bad cause I would like to put him on a bigger bike but he's not big enough yet.

Well i think i might get a 85 or 100 because i will do a lot of woods riding and will need to be able to touch. If i grow 3 or so inches then i would probably get the 125

Can your friend touch the ground to start that bike? He looks tiny on that bike, although once it is moving, it doesn't really matter I suppose.

My young rider is about the same size as your friend and has ridden my YZ250F. He just seems too small for it though. I'd like to see him grow to about 5-6 before he gets on a full sized bike all the time.
