    Hello, new to forums and street riding

    Forum Sponsor
    Hello everyone, I have very limited experience with forums, looking to start riding on the street this year.. next year for sure.
    currently getting ready to book my m1x course, and looking for a bike that I can tolerate and afford.
    Many years playing in the dirt on powerful bikes makes a ninja 250 look like a toy you give a child, but I also seems like the only way to get reasonable insurance.
    hopefully I can add to this community as I get to know what I’m talking about.

    Is true dirt is way more fun, but your dirt riding experience also gives you a huge advantage surviving street,
    don't let on at the motorcycle training that you have experience, let them figure it out.

    how about a KTM 390, expensive or reasonable?
    ... and curious what you rode for dirt bikes

    Agreed, look at the naked options for cheaper considerations.
    14' GROM - Stretched & slammed beast
    17' FZ09 - Totaled by a left turner
    15' R3 - Sold but missed.

    Started on an old dt400, run trails(single track) cr125, and had the pleasure of riding my buddy’s Honda 450 around a mx track, that thing is a beast. Oh yah and when I visit my brother I ride his race cr250.. you need to keep it in power band or it fowls the plug, can get scary when the trails get tight.
    As far as the ktm I really like it, but it’s gonna be a couple of years before it’s an option.
