I took an MSF class a few months ago and got a Suzuki GS500F for my first bike.

I don't know much about bikes but why would you put slicks on a dirtbike?

Also, I'm interested in getting a not-so powerful dirt bike to mess around with on property we own out in the woods. (We've got some quads up there already). Recommend anything? I really don't even know what size/type engine to look for.

dirtbike + 17s + slicks = supermoto = lots of fun

125 smoker?

I LOVE my '08 ktm 300xcw smoker...

My first dirt bike (about 5 years ago) was an old yz250 2t with a light switch throttle... Damn, I learned the "hard way" on that thing!

squid after you break 3 or 4 sets of levers you'll wish you had the handguards back on. They really do pay for themselves rather quickly if you're at all challenging yourself.

07 ktm 525 exc here (the plated one)

If you ever want to do a Silverwood to Big Bear and back dual sport ride (after the snow melts of course) let me know.
