answering a few questions before my poll finishes up

**IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE THE POLL, PLEASE DO THAT, JUST TO THE RIGHT!**

Anyways, i thought i would just answer any questions i gathered by looking at you guys' comments.

1. What is a good dirt-bike for a beginner/price for one?

Well it all depends on how big you are, and how much you know about riding something you have to shift yourself. If you are still growing, it is best to just stick to something below 125cc four stroke, and 100cc two stroke (2 stroke is always more powerful, and difficult).
I would go to a dealership, and talk to a salesman, or perhaps respond to some local ad's to try to find something you can deal with.

If you are fully grown, and are just starting, you should stick to 125-250cc 4 stroke, and 85-125cc 2 stroke (both KILLER sizes).

if you do not know how to PROPERLY operate a manual gearbox, with the clutch, then comment and il get a nice guide up.
if you dont know how, you are limited to a very small sized dirtbike.

for any beginner i would get something used, but in good condition. depending on year and size i would pay no more then $2250. I could get a very nice beginner bike for $1500, but the condition might not be the best.


2. What are those mini-bikes (pit-bikes) about?

They are smaller, lighter, more stunt oriented bikes with oversized engines in them, and they (i imagine) are pretty scary.
they are just a different type of riding, and i would not take them very far on the trails (smaller wheels = not going over everything easily)


3. pictures of my bikes?

Im going to try to get you guys some pictures, but one is not at my house, and the other two are in my basement (dark), so no action shots :(


until the poll results come in (still a few hours left) im not going to start going over anything. so if you have not voted, please do so.
im going to try to extend that to a better time...right now it ends in the middle of the night here.

comment with any questions that are car or bike related!!
