Anything from the big four (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki), KTM, or Husqvarna will be a quality product. If you can afford a newer one, only Yamaha, KTM, and Husky are still making them (maybe TM also). See what's in your area as far as dealers or used bikes and that'll give you an idea of what you can afford.

Hi there Gusco thanks for the info I grew up riding a 80s Honda cr 60 I do like the 90s Honda but are parts hard to find, are they reliable. I don't have the experience to fix bikes, as well. What year would be good for a newer bike 2 stroke Yz or Cr my budget is 2 to 3k

Bikes run different prices in different areas. In my area, you could get into a 2005+ with a $2k+ budget. I recently sold a 2001 fully rebuilt cr250 for under $2k. Again, look at what's in your area and what it runs. Look for something that looks well maintained (chain is lubed, slack set correctly, fresh gas in the tank, tires inflated, bearings in good shape, etc.). If you want a toy, you're either going to have to learn to work on bikes or get ready to pay out for regular service and the occasional breakdown.

South Texas is a hard place to find good bikes , need to go North , CC area or farther to find under 250 cc bikes . Even knowing the best mechanics does'nt help much , most are pretty used up !!

To get experience is to start some where. get a manual sOme tools and go from there. you can teach your self. good luck part of the fun is working on them.
best bet to start with is a 2 stoke. like said early look at the big 4.

If I were you, I would go with KTM for newer ones, hence Hondas.
