Re: what dirtbike should i get

If I were you, I'd get an XR250R or something similar, if you like 4-strokes. I have (well, it's wrecked right now) an SP125, and there just isn't enough power there. I'm 5'7" and about 140, and a 125 4-stroke just doesn't have enough power even for me and my mediocre experience level. An XR250R weighs about the same as my SP125, too.

Re: what dirtbike should i get

if you are on a blaster now you would want more power rite? an xr250 is great but if you want more power get a 300 4 stroke or something.

Who makes a 300 4 stroke XR80man?? The XR200 has more power than a blaster, but go with the 250, it's bigger, has better brakes and suspension.
