No, a cr 125 is way to big. Im 5'5-5'6" and its still too tall for me. You will have major problems. Dont be afraid to get a mini just because it has the word "mini" attatched to it. A bike thats too big for you will not only be no fun, but dangerous. You wont have fun, and might want to quit. Do not be fooled by the number "85," because they haul ***. My friend's aftermarket parts yz85 is faster then his stock cr 125. I think an 85 would be perfect for you, and even a kx 100 would be a bit big. IMO a 125 would be out of the question. Trust me, a small bike is sometimes more fun to ride. You have better control of them, and can whip them around. Maybe your friends have 125's, but you would be better off, and probably faster on an 85 or 100. Just my $0.02, but i would seriously reconsider getting a 125.

The 125 is way to big for you, your feet should be touching the ground comfortably. Go for an 85 you will love the bike, wait till you grow out if it then get a 125. Theres no point in buying a bike thats to big, you won't be able to ride it.

If you go four stroke now, you can save some $$$. They hold their value very well, and shouldnt have a problem selling it for a few hundred less then you got it. When your done with that, get your 125. Go with a ttr125 for now, or crf150. Id still say you would do fine on an 85. In certain conditions, even ill admit theyre more fun to ride then my 125. Fortunatly, i have a little sister, and can ride hers all the time But your thinking in the future, and thats good, but your looking to far in the future. With a bike that size, it will be dangerous. You may hurt yourself and be discouraged from riding. Your saying your next bike will be the last bike you get, before a fullsized one. Get an 85. Or 4 stroke 125. Have you ever ridden a 125 2 stroke? I dont think you could begin to imagine how much @$$ they haul. A 85 will have more then enough power. Unless your maxing out on an 85, it should be fine. You wont use nearly all of the power, it has plenty to spare. I understand you dont want to have to go through the process of buying a new bike in a few years, but getting a 125 at 10 yrs old and 5 ft tall is just CRAZY! Talk to Racer#213. Hes got a KX100, and hes 15. Im sure you can get quite a few years out of a "mini." In the end, your descision is your descision, but let me tell you. I got a 125, and even i thought long and hard about a 100, and im quite a bit bigger then you. Im 5'6 and 130 lbs. My advise, is get an 85. If your worried about it lasting, get a 100. If you think you can handle a 125, get a psychiatrist. Good luck.

Hey you don't want a CR125 when your only 10 and 5feet tall there's no way you could handle that much power, and it's way to big for you. The only thing you would accomplish on a CR125 are hospital visits!!! I would know I'm 16 and almost 6ft. Tall and I have trouble handling my CR125! So go with an 85 for now and get use to riding that first and then when you are about 15 or 16 get a 125. You will have a lot more fun on a 85 than a 125! If you want a 125 just because your friends have 125's or you want to have a bigger bike then your friends. Well if that's the case then if you have a 85 you will be able to smoke them because a 85 can come close to a 125 if your a good rider and you will handle it so much better you would still beat them on your 85. So go for the 85 for now and then in a couple years sell it and get a 125.

Hey I'm 13 and have a CR125 but I'm also 5 11. I can't imagine if i got it when i was 5 foot i wouldn't do it. I ride my friends YZ 85 and it is fast! I would have been happy getting this before my 125 but i didn't think it was powerful enough. Wow was i wrong.
Go with the 85.

A bigwheel is too big for you. I got my cr 80 expert when I was about 5'4 and it was still to big for me. Unless your inseem goes up to your chest or something, a 125 is WAY to big. I am about 5'7 with a shaved seat and cant stand flatfooted. Inseems are differant, but that should give you a baseline.

sup everyone? im 6ft, i have a cr125 that sits so tall i almost cant stand flat footed. and thats almost stretching. i agree a 125 is too big for you height. i know youll get teller but you have to think of the power to weight ratio. DUDE! YOU'LL KILL YOURSELF.im 30 and 6ft, i have ab 89' KX80 bigwheel. you would not belive how much fun it is. im alittle tall for it but man it is fun. i have a cr250 and i'll tell you what, if my 80 ran right now my 250 would be parked in the shed. but hey, its your choice so...do what you think will work out.

you are 10 and you want a 125. i think you have big kid syndrome. ride an 85 expert until you are riding it at WOT all the way around the track. then you will be ready for a 125. another option would be to get a 4 stroke 125 since they sit much shorter. but any 85 will whoop a 4 stroke 125 unless you have quite a few mods on it. the 85 will also have better resale value in a few years as opposed to the 4 stroke 125.

I think big kid syndrome is right. If you dropped a 125, theres is no WAY you could pick it up, let alone get back on it. I think this is another case of "my friends have a 125, so i want one too." I have a 10 yr old cousin, and were looking at getting him an xr 80. Hes 4'6. You need a ttr 125, or an 80 stroker. I think an 85 might even be a little uncomfortable for you. Theyre pretty tall even
