I need some help choosing a dirt bike. I know slot about street bikes but nothing about the power and size about dirt bikes. I am in north Florida till march and I see slot of dirt bikes for cheap. Whatvis the smallest size I can get for a full size adult? I am not int mx just want fast that I can trail ridevon with moderate jumping.

There is a guy selling a 2003 rm 1000 and 85 for $1500 together. Is this a good price? Thanks for any help

how big is full size adult......lol
for me a 250 four stroke is good. 125 two strokes are very fun and have plenty of power to haul my around, but im only 160-170. Fourstrokes are alot easier to ride, because you dont have to keep them in powerband all the time. I would say a 125 two stroke is your best bet.

Full size adultvas oppose to a lil one duh!!! I don't know y I said that LOL. So a rm 100 and 85 is out of the question? Not trying to spend alot of money. Some reason I got a wild hair up my and want to start riding the dirt too.

well how big are you is what i meant if your looking to get in on the cheap an older rm 125 would be your best bet. You could get one for under a grand. The 85 and 100 will prolly be a smaller frame, although they do make them with the bigger frames. They are just not as common.

If you are comfortable with a fast bike I'd look at a 450f or 2-stroke 250. I've had a couple of each and I'm only 5'6" 145 pounds. If I were doing track, I'd get back on a 125 2 stroke for weight reasons.

Unless you want a pitbike for playing around on avoid anything under 125cc 2-stroke & 250cc four stroke (basically full sized bikes). For what you mentioned (trail riding) riding a childs bike would get tedious for a normal sized adult with any skills.... For a cheap dirt fix get a few yr.old 125 2-stroke or 250 4stroke for a bit more $$$.

if you want cheap git an older 125. the new ama rules have put the last nail in the coffin for those bikes and you can get em rediculously cheap.
