thanks for help on the boots. Now...for a bike to ride alongside my son on his XR70, eternally in first gear. Last time out, I must have walked 2 miles! I am thinking XR 100 or ttr-100, 125? Yamaha seems to have a big wheel small wheel version. What is that about?

LOL welcome to the club! You might as well get all the gear and sign up to race as well! I did! I have a TTR125 it is a bullet proof easy to ride bike. Go with the big wheel it is taller and you will most likely like it alot better than the small wheel. XR 100 are great begginer/following bikes as well. A CRF150 will offer you a bit more power and alot more height. Find someone who won't mind you taking their bike around the pits for a spin and try some. Go to a local shop and sit on a few to see which one fits you best. I am really short (5'1") and the TTR fits me well. If you planning on following,getting off and picking the little one up, and just having fun definatly go with one of those. They are four strokes and a two stroke is just not made to toodle. Good luck to ya!

thanks you guys. I am 5'4 and don't feel comfortable on a bike taller than the xr100. I assume the seat ht. is similar to the ttr. I am looking in the 1200. price range at the moment. single working mom, you know. Truth be known: I am the Mom of a kid that doesn't race. We are interested in trials. but doubt can ever afford the trials bike. so, cow trailing for now.
