New to dirtbikes

I have never ridden a dirt bike and know nothing about them but I want to. Can anyone advise me on what I should be looking for on an entry level dirt bike? Thanks. Btw, Just looking to play in some mud and climb up some easy hills most likely.

Start on a smaller bike to get the feel of NOT having traction, something you can flatfoot the ground on. CRF150, XR100, TTR125, XR200 or something similar. You can pick them up for $1k if you look for a decent one. It's such a different riding experience that only seat time and crashing will show you what it is, but it's a blast and to me more fun them riding the street. It also translates all the same principles to riding any other type of bike.

Or be like me and jump right into the 450 class bike and learn to hold on....No seriously the CRF230 is a great bike to learn on and something you can easily master yet not outgrow it...

I don't see why not.

I'm a cheap , so when I offered a dealer some ridiculously lowball offer on a brand new, but 2 year old KX250, they accepted, and I stole it. That was my very first motorcycle, ever.

Point being, I'd buy what you can get the best deal on, and the heck with anyone who says you have to start out on a bike with a weedeater engine.
