well if youve never rode dirtbikes before. trail bikes are awesome to learn on. if your racing, i know that they dont have the greatest suspension for that but the main idea of it would be to get used to the bike and learn how to ride it. then when you get a 85cc or w/e else you decide to get you'll know how to ride it well w/o damaging the bike alot. i started out and raced a xr 100 and im glad i started with that. when also loooking for a bike you might want to consider your height and weight. also your age depends alot on what class you can race in... just some thoughts
If you dont like mud,sand,water or dust be a ballerina!!!
Yeah adding to what she said. How tall are you? If you are between 5'0-5'5 a TTR 125 will be fine. If you are closer to 6'0 then it will be too small and get boring. I had a XR100 and had fun with that for awhile, but it got boring after awhile. Another thing is have you ever ridden a bike?? what was it? Just questions that will make your decision easier.
