Hey guys, I'm interested in jumping into the sport. It would appear as if the local dirt bikes seem to have a little bit of everything, from trails to some motorcross stuff, so it looks like that's what my dirt bike would need to handle. I'm about 5'7, and 143 pounds. As I previously said, I am a complete novice to the sport. I haven't driven a manual car, so operating a clutch may be something new to me (although, I have driven a manual ATV a couple of times before). I'm not very mechanical (I'm taking my schools power mechanics class next year), so I'm liking the alleged simplicity of the two-strokes. This is asking a lot, and given than I'm a student with little budget, this doesn't sound very feasible. How much am I looking at for a bike to get into the sport? $1500-$2000 for an older, stock, bike?
