What bike to get?

I've retired my SP125, for now, and while my wounds heal from hitting that Great Pyrenese, I'm wanting a new(to me) bike. I just don't know what would be a good bike for me. I'm 18, 5'8" and weigh about 140. The SP was my first bike and I had it about 4 months. I mainly ride woods/trails. Any suggestions?

You could get a used XR400 or WR400 that would accomadate your needs real nicely. I'll keep thinking and post if anything else pops in my head. Marc

Re: What bike to get?

Some bikes I'd thought about were a CR125, a KDX200, or a WR250 or 400. I've never ridden 2-strokes much, so I wonder about the KDX being too much bike. I'm kinda worried about the weight of a WR400, also. I don't won't something I can't manage. I don't know if I'd rather have a 2-stroke or a 4. Any thoughts?
