    New Rider, bike shopping and training

    Thanks for all the info guys. I mentioned the track because I think there is one up I25 toward Loveland that is pretty close to where I live. It seemed like an easy place to go to learn to ride even during the week. I definitely want to ride trails in the mountains more than the track. I have no plans of doing any racing. I have some higher end guns I'm working on trade or sell deals to see what I can find. So if you know anyone who would be interested in such a thing send them my way! from what I've read and my experience I think a 4-stroke would suit me better but since I'm in the used market and potentially a trade I don't have as much wiggle room.

    Thanks for the advice. I am looking at a 1999 Honda XR200R that is a really good price (well below my budget) that is supposed to be in great condition. I know it's a bit smaller but might be a good place for me to start and then give to the wife so she can ride too.
  3. Hey everyone, going out on a limb here to see if anyone rides in my area. I live in Longmont, CO, north of Denver, and am looking to get my first bike and learn to ride. I am 28 and have ridden ATVs, motorcycles, mountain bikes, but never dirt bikes but am anxious to learn. First things first, I am looking for a bike to learn on. I am 6' and close to 250 so a little bike probably wouldn't work but any recommendations? I am not looking for anything new until I learn to ride and figure out what exactly I would be looking for. I don't need anything street legal as I plan to ride tracks/closed areas and hopefully in the mountains. Is there any other reason to have a street legal bike I'm missing? I would be looking to spend somewhere in the $1000-$3000 range as I expect that's what a descent, old, reliable, bike might run? Also, if there is anyone in the area that is looking for someone else to ride with that doesn't mind giving some tips let me know!
