Which dirtbike for me ?

So summer is comin, I'm bored out of my mind and I think I finally wanna get a dirtbike. I've been puttin it aside for the longest time and since I moved into new house I got miles and miles of terrain to explore, all I gotta do is walk to the end of my steet and it's all perfect terrain for off-road.

Anyway I've never had a dirtbike before, I'm 24 and the only bike I had was one of the old WSK 125cc, I went through 3 of them when I was 13 lol, used it as a dirtbike back in Europe

So I'm lookin at Yamaha lineup and I thought of 125 but there's few models. Off-Road TT-R125
Off-Road TT-R125E
Off-Road TT-R125L
Motocross YZ125

It's all the same to me, I have no clue what to look at since I never owned a dirtbike before and don't know what are the major points. All I know is that I don't want the bike to go on a sightseein trip Something that will withstand my crazy ideas

The TTR125E has electric start with 17/14 wheels. The TTR125L has larger wheels(19/16) than the TTR125. The YZ125 is 2 stroke mx bike thats basically made for the track. You said you were 24, so I figure your about 5'7 or taller. The TTR125L is going to be to small and the suspension will be soft and you will prob. outgrow it fast. I would get a Yamaha WR250F. Its a good 4-stroke trail bike that gives you alot of learning room. 2007 Yamaha WR250F Specifications, specs, spec
The Honda CRF250X is basically the same as a wr250f but made my Honda. Both would be good bikes for what you are planning on riding. Your dealer could tell you alot about the bikes and prob. let you ride them around the parking lot
