Got a new(to me)dirtbike! Tips/advice welcome!!
I just bought my first dirt bike. I have never ridden anything with two wheels before besides a little ttr 90. I am about 5'10" 200lbs so that thing was tiny. I think I got a pretty good deal on it, it's a 1986 Kawasaki KDX 200. I got it off of CL, the guy I bought it from showed me receipts with over $1500 worth of work recently done to it. I payed $700 for the bike, haven't had to kick it more then twice to get it started. I got it on Sunday but haven't ridden it yet because I didn't have a helmet yet. I got one today so I'm going out tomorrow. Please let me know what you think or if you have anything I should know about riding any bike or this specific one. I can use all of the help I can get. I am a complete rookie with this. Thanks in advance.
