Question Getting a New bike. What should i get?

     

Well, my kx65 was stolen friday night right after i put a brand new piston and rings in it. It wasn't even broken in yet!!! This was my first rebuild!!! SO MAD! Anyway i am going to get a new bike and cannot decide whet to get. I have experiece and i know how to ride. I've had a couple small quads, gokarts,a kx65, and a yz85. Right now i have a 400ex. I love 2 strokes so i am looking to buy a 125 but are the 250f's as good as everyone says they are.

Which bike should i buy. I lovethe easy maintanence of 2 strokes and the high rev but i have nothing against four strokes.
What are your opinions,the bike will be used.
I fit both perfectly

Two stroke. Why? More power, better sounding, awesome smelling, simpler, cheaper-to-do-anything-with engine. I've been on some new YZ250f's and the only thing I like about them is if I'm not in powerband and start to go uphill I'm still cool. I'm betting 90% of your responses will be go 2-stroke

if you really like high revs the yzf,crf,rmz etc spin lots higher than the two stroke 125's do stock.

4 strokes have their advantages. That's why a lot of people that can have any bike they want ride them.

4 strokes are easier to ride if you are into things that are easy. At such a young age a 2 stroke will help you develop your riding skills. Maintaining momentum and clutch usage are skills vital to going fast on a small bore 2 stroke. Master those skill and you'll go fast on everything with 2 wheels and a motor.

I had no issurance on the kx65 bought it off craigslist and i am only 14 soo... any way i ride lots of trails but i have a track at my house i think ill just buy a 125 that needs rebuilt so i get it cheap. fixing the bikes aren't hard just getting over the fear of messing something up is haha.

From a guy that won't ride anything but a four stroke I'd say go with the smoker.....the Yz are good!!! I still ride my cousins Yz and they are pretty simple to work on
