After a few months of searching and gathering info, I'm getting close to making my first dirt bike purchase. Should happen this weekend. It's down to 2: 2004 Honda XR400- $1950. All stock. Pretty clean, but it's been ridden a bit. Will need tires and sprocket/chain soon. 2000 KTM 300EXC- $2550. Going to look at it tomorrow. New everything, including rebuilt motor. New FMF pipe & silencer, Pro-Taper bars Last chance for me to get opinions. So let's have it! I'm 35, 6'4", 225 lbs. Long time street rider, but NO dirt experience. Looking to do trail riding, some with my 14 year old son. 4 stroke is smooth and comfortable. But the KTM has that appeal... just don't know if it will be too much for my purpose.
