  1. Some of the bikes I'm finding have no title at all. If I check for the vin number and all is good, there should be no issues?
  2. He is 19 150 pounds, same age as me. Only gear he has is a 1998 nolan helmet, which meant for street bikes and gloves. His budget is $1,200 for a bike, so I'm looking for a used one. He will be mostly doing trail riding, but we do have an mx track around here. As for armor, he was looking to get one of those knock off's of the fox titan armor that has no C.E rating. I personally wouldn't trust it, but what do you think?
  3. A friend of mine is looking to get into the sport, he is 5'8''. So far I found a 2005 KTM 85SX in good condition. What would be a fair price to offer him?

    Planning on getting some armor

    Alright, I figured im taking this way too seriously lol
  5. I've researched quite a bit, and there are CE rated 1 and 2 levels with some level 2's being better than others in terms of how much force it can absorb. This is what I found Are those significant differences? And I had some trouble finding out how long these types of armor can last, I hear they are single impact just like helmets.
  6. Yea I remember some fox instincts selling for $80 but they were too small.
  7. I got the message, also I see some $150-$200 boots that sell used on ebay for a lot less. In terms of protection would it better to buy used if my budget is $100? I know for helmets at least you shouldn't buy used.
  8. I need new shoes for work mostly, and these seem heavy duty but I'm not assuming that these will protect me better or even close to those dirt bike boots. Right now I just have flexible running shoes, would getting a pair of timberlands make a difference? Also I forgot to note this will be more for casual riding, I do plan on getting dirt bike boots in the future.

    Apollo dirt bikes?

    From my experience from cheap pit bikes, they are not good or really built for off road riding. Even though they may look like it.

    Whats the best budget helmet?

    I'd definitely go with the Bell MX-9, at that price with mips just seems unbeatable. I have been searching for a pair of goggles, but something good for low light and night riding. Do the ones with like 80% vlt and are yellow tinted help? Or should I get the clear ones? Some other accessories I'm looking for is a head light for the helmet so I can look around when its dark.
  11. How much would you say should be spent on a helmet minimum? I've looked around and I saw a bell with mips for $200. Cheapest helmet with mips I can find. Max budget would be $300-$400 if those extra hundred dollars will make a difference. Something I would like is a helmet that can protect against low to medium impacts as well. Most of my concussions were never from a high impact force.
  12. I might still be interested in a dual sport since it will be convenient to have it street legal right off the bat. It usually takes more than a month to get a plate for a dirt bike or so thats not street legal?
  13. This will be just for enduro. I can put it on the back of my truck, but one day I might want to make it street legal. I have an idea on how to. The only thing I'm a bit worried about is insurance, since I'm 19 I just have a feeling its going to be high.
  14. Thanks for the input, and also which 125cc would you recommend? The pit bike I had back then was just not meant for woods, since the small wheel and the suspension just wasn't there.
