ttr125 is a pretty torquey bike and is a 4 sttroke

4 strokes are easier to maintain and have more torque

while 2 strokes are faster

then you want a 4 stroke. Hondas are always good. I have a yamaha ttr125 and love it. maybe you can make it out to a sunday golf course meet and you can test ride mine. Honda 150 is another good option.

depending on your size i would say a 2 stroke 250 from any of the big four would be the way to go. plenty around still. parts are cheap. bikes are simple. plenty of power. and are full size. and could probably get a quality one for anywhere from 2 gs to brand new ive seen left overs go for like 5gs. or if your a smaller person. then tell me and ill think of something lol

yea if your a smaller person then that would be the way to go. those air cooled 4 strokes last forever but they have no whatsoever
