hello there!

hey i am new to the dirt bike chat i have been on the atv chat for awhile now so i decided to come to the dirt bike chat since i have a dirt bike. It is a 1987 honda xr 100 nothing to get exicted about but i was just getting used to a dirt bikes since i never had one before,so i think i am ready to move up because i have had this bike for almost a year now and feels underpowered for me now so what would be the best bike to get after this one? i would be using it on dirt roads and little mud,so if you have any suggestions let me know. thanks

Re: hello there!

I think the TTR-225 is a neat little bike. It's a 4 stroke with electric start. The button shouldn't be underrated. I did a test on mine (DR Z400 E) the other day and was able to start my bike with either hand, on or off the bike! While it does take both hands (it's a manly bike and requires both hands) [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] actually, it requires the clutch to be pulled in, regardless of whether it's in neutral or not, to start. One of these days, I'm going to fix that. Back to the issue at hand, your new bike, the TTR 225 isn't as tall as most of the others, which can be a good thing. It's not going to be a speed freak either. If your looking for something to do triples on (which would be quite a step for your current ride), then a pure MX bike would be what your looking for (in my opinion). These can be had in various flavors of color and engine design. To paraphrase "to thump, or not to thump would be the question" here. It kind of depends on what your going to do with it. I'm pretty much a 4 stroke guy, figuring....the more strokes the better, right? Choosing a new bike isn't easy, I spent about a year deciding on what I wanted. It was going to be either an FXDX, or the DRZ. All of this on two cups of coffee, not bad!!!! I always operate better in the am, it's proven!

Re: hello there!

whoa yea dude, sell the 80 quik! a medisize four stroke is a good way to go. If you ride that little xr to much longer noone will give you anything for it. Picking your next bike basicly boils down to how far you think your riding skills will take you on the bike. Wish we could actualy see ya ride we could help decide

Re: hello there!

my riding skills are really good now the only trouble i used to have was the cluch but it did not take long to figure out,well i have been driving atv`s for about 10 years and i have been driving dirt bikes for 1 year, so i am pertty good at driving dirt bikes now since when i first started.I drive fairly agressive with atvs or dirt bikes,I use the dirt bike in fairly rough trails and fairly muddy trails and also i have a little jump set up as well.
