Usflag Getting back into riding


Hi all,

I grew up riding dirt bikes, but have only been on one once in the last 15 years. My kids are getting to the age where they値l be able to ride, so it痴 time for me to get myself a dirtbike. A lot痴 changed since I last road and I have a few questions that I hope will get me up with the times.

I知 going to teach my three kids how to ride which means I値l be doing a lot of super slow trail riding, so I値l probably get a four stroke. I知 63 and weigh 245lbs. Now for the questions:

Does anyone know of a way I can ride several different newer bikes before buying one? And I知 guessing most places that rent dirtbike痴 only have crappy/older machines.

My head almost exploded when I saw the price of new dirtbikes, and the secondhand market hardly has anything. I致e searched craigslist, Facebook, and cycle trader, but most of that is dominated by dealers selling new bikes. Is there another forum for used bikes?
