I would say go find yourself a 4 stroke. Pick a brand, head over to the dealer, and sit on a few bikes to see what fits you best. I wouldn't get a 125 as a beginner bike. Maybe something a bit less touchy till you get use to riding. Maybe a Honda XR 80-100 or a CRF 80-100.

i'm about the same size as you, and i have a RM 125, i can barely tip toe on it, so if this is going to be your first bike, i would not go w/ a 125 2 stroke, go w/ a 4stroke, crf230 would probaly be good.

Sweet heart what ever you do don't buy anything else but a HONDA. Pound for Pound the best bike you will ever own.

Now I ride a 02 CR250 with many aftermarket piece's. I like the feel of a 2-stroke "2-stroke - or PINGER" bike better then a 4-stroke bike "4-stroke - or Thumper".

It would probley be easier for you to ride a Thumper for your first bike, Honda has a great line of trail "CRF line" bike's that would fit you.

Here is a direct sit to the Honda: http://powersports.honda.com/motorcycles/


I would probley recommend CRF230F or maybe a CRF150F, depending on how much of a Girl you are.

If you Think you can handle a CRF230F you should probley think about maybe getting a CRF250R, or a CR125 Pinger. But then again I don't know many Girls that can handle a Motocross bike.

I think a 150F would be better for a begginer but on the other hand if you are daring then the 230 should be good too.

how fast do u want to go? I started on a four stroke, and I think i would have been better off on a pinger. And are you looking at new or used bikes?

You gotta let us know what your expectations and aspirations are. How aggressive are you? How much do you plan to spend? Dont forget to include about $500 for gear: $200+ for a helmet, another $200+ for boots, and another $70 or so for goggles and gloves. These are must have items for dirt biking on any level. Then theres optional gear (which I consider mandatory but JMO) like a chest protector about $100+, riding pants and a long sleeve jersey anywhere from $100 on up to $250.
