Just wondering. It's something I have always wanted to do. What's a good beginner bike?

I did for quite a few years. Dirtbikes and Quads used to be my life (hence my member name lol )

Anyway, it depends on what you want to do? Are you going to be riding on a track or riding through the trails? A 4stroke will better suite you for trail riding, and they require much less maintenance then a 2stroke. You can still take a 4stroke to the track if you'd like, but a 2stroke bike is alot lighter and much easier to whip around. 4strokes are more money though, so its really upto you. A good starter bike would be any 2stroke 125cc. Yz125, Kx125, RM125, CR125, etc.. If you are a bigger guy, a 125 might feel alittle small, they also have 250cc (yz250, rm250, etc) but dont under estimate these. They might have too much power for a beginner. If you are looking for a 4stroke bike, check out Honda's CRF line. A 250cc 4stroke is roughly equivalent to a 125cc 2stroke (speed wise).

Good luck on finding the right bike for yourself. I wish I had the money to get back into the sport, because once you start, your never gonna want to stop!

Well I do a lot of mountain biking, so the trail riding apeals to me. I don't know that I can afford it, but it's nice to look into.

Only if the BMX subgame in California Games counts

Anybody here have any experience w/ powered parachutes? I see them flying around here a lot, and I think I've got the bug to try that out.

the inverted chest would make a nice cradle to land in.
