    A bunch of my friends have quads but I dig 2 wheels more. What is a good bike to learn on? I'm looking for trail type riding and likely wheelies. suggestions?

    500 with naws is too much, bro.

    Husky 430 would be perfect.

    250cc two stroke. I have a 94 250 yz. I pull on my friends 05 250 yz. But I did build the motor and added pipes and jetted the bike. You can pick on up for under a g.

    Thanks for the replies. I have been weary of them for a while due to a wreck I had a few years ago on a friends 500cc. I think I start small. heh.

    Unless you weigh 300 lbs a 250 2t is a lot of bike for a beginner.

    Depends on the rider. :dunno: I started on a cr125 and quickly out grew the bike very fast. You shouldn't be pushing the bike to the limit anyways.

    My 250 is fast, I ride it like a complete ass hole with out any regard to safty. My wife rides it to and she can handle it. The trick is to ride with in your ablity.

    Unless you're in the top 5 in the AMA Pro Nationals you aren't pushing the bike near its limits.

    The only place I will agree an average rider might outgrow a 125 is dune riding. Everywhere else the bike can do way more than you're asking of it.
