having wanted a dirt bike most of my life and now that the tenere is paid for , i'm shopping..... 2 stroke or 4 stroke that is the question ….. i'm not an expert dirt rider by any means but I want to learn to ride better , figure dirt is a good school . i'm really excited about KTM 300 xcw tpi , or 500 exc , or honda crf 450x and just maybe the new crf450l ….. wife has given her blessing . I have been practicing on my neighbors wr 450 , hasn't chunked into the trees yet but its still early. would like to know your thoughts and experiences , just so ya'll know I don't buy used , I will tear up my own machine and hopefully not me with it.... finding some great prices on the honda " X " , thinking it will be my choice based on price and what I can do to it to make it mine. thanks guys , looking forward to your ideas and comments.
