    My buddies and I want to get dirtbikes, but I have no idea what I should be getting. I guess I'm looking for something reliable that won't kill me on my first ride but not be too slow so that I'd want to upgrade in a few months. Basically I just want to get this dirtbike and keep it till it's dead. I won't be doing any racing, nor crazy jumps. Just something to cruise around my mom's farm.

    I'm 5' 11" 175lbs if that helps with anything.

    well if you really want to learn, get a XR100 first, but yes you will want to upgrade.

    After that, well depends.. 4 or 2 strokes.. I'd suggest a WR250 4 stroke or YZ125/250 2 stroke.

    Dont waste your money on a motocross bike. Too much upkeep for a play bike.

    Just get an XR250.
