Hi, I am new here, my buddy H0TR0DN told me about this place, it looks like fun.
I am looking for a trail bike, I am 6' and about 170lbs, I have ridden a dirt bike once, I believe it was a 125 cc smoker.
I am wanting a 250 2 stroke, I have heard good stuff about the yz250s, and I found one on craigslist for $800 obo, but it's a 98. I was looking for a newer bike, like an 01 up but this one looked like a good deal for a rookie such as myself.
Any drawbacks to buying a 98 instead of a newer bike? I know the 05 and up had aluminum frames, but that only saves 4-5 lbs from what I understand, so that's not a huge deal to me.
