You don't want a TTR or XR...okay maybe you will, but when I twist the throttle I want to go...not sit there and think about it for 10 minutes.

A TTR and XR will be at a MX track...having a 125 or 250 2 stroke gives you best of both worlds.

Worst case scenario.. You buy the bike and decide you don't care for it. Then you can sell it for a slower bike.

I think you would end up keeping it around after you ride it a few times.

don't be fooled by the people that tell you a two stroke requires more maintenance.

who cares if you have to add a little bit of oil to the gas....you don't have to check/adjust valves all the time. you will still have to clean the bikes, clean/lube the chain, change your oil, and clean your air filters on both 2 & 4s.

If it's a 125 I'd pass, but that's just me. Too much work to constantly be on the pipe for power.

Get a big bore 2-stroke and you can lug it (if needed) or open it up and pull your arms out of their sockets.
