Re: Wut should i get?
If you will be riding in the mountains, forget the YZ125, unles you weigh about 100 lbs. You will need lots of low end power, and the YZ125, or any other 125 MXer, will be under powered. Brian is on the right track, four stroke seems to be the best choice as far as learning curve and necessary power to make your adventur a fun one. You may want to look into an XR400. User friendly, yet technologically advanced enough to not be boring after a few months. As a beginner, you may still want to look at the TTR with the electric start, hot starts on four strokes are a pain, and can be very frustrating if you have to do it multiple times on a ride.
