Big Guy, First Bike

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for my first dirt bike. I'm not sure which one would be the best for me, I am 6'3" 255 lbs. I've been looking into the XRs, DRs, and XTs. Can anyone help me out?

I have riding experience so I'm not worried about it being too fast.

The XT225 and DR200 are really made for a 140~150 lb rider, so I'd probably pass on them at your size. But you could ride one just to start and sell it. A DRZ400 would probably be a better option for your first bike.

Go with a 600 0r 650 , its all about throttle control . Use some common sense while riding and of course the right protective gear .

Hey big Tyler, I hope ur not after the same XR 500 I am. I am going out to ride it in Las Cruces, near El Paso, next week. Like you Im 250, and need something big enough to carry me down dirt roads and trails. May go all the way to Tucson to get one.
