Default ABSOLUTE BEGINNER RIDER PLZ HELP

     

(before I start: sorry for long post) hi, I'm Brady. I'm 15 and 5'6" and 120lbs, and I am currently saving up for a new 125cc pit bike under 1k. yes, yes I already know that should just save up for a nicer one and not a Chinese one, but I want to be sure that dirt bikes are something I want to do, so I don't want to go crazy on my first one. I have ridden bikes before and I understand and can operate a manual (which is what I want). I also have experience with small engines so I can handle maintenance. so the point is, I put my choice between two different bikes, but I can't decide what would be the best choice in the long run. I have split my choice between the COOLSTER M125 (in red), which is Coolsters souped-up, nicer version. (their most common one is the qg214, but this is NOT that) it's this:killermotorsports.com/coolster-125cc-m125-manual-pit-dirt-bike. when you search it make sure its the "M125". then my other choice is an Apollo DB-X18

Before buying a Chinese bike, I would rent/borrow a bike for a few days to get the feel for it and see how you like it since you're not sure you will be interested or not. You'll have a hard time selling that cheap Chinese bike if you end up not liking it.

5'6", 120lbs... I'd say a Honda XR100/Yamaha TTR 125/Kawasaki KX140 would be a great fit and (at least in my market) would run around $1000 and resell for about the same price in a year or two.
