    I wouldnt expect much life out of that engine depending on age, thats why I recommended a 2 stroke as a beginners bike but that 125 four stroke will do you just fine though might be to small for ya and need to upgrade soon if you keep on it, If you get into it I would recommend a 2 stroke 125, get experience with working on a carb, top end, fluids, etc and wont cost you a ton like the 4 stroke will. Plus a 125 will have just enough power but not too much to start out on. Then maybe work into a 250f, etc. Missed my cr125 so much I bought a yz125 a few months ago for when my yz250f is too much. lol. though this can be a very expensive hobby, so you are forewarned. my bike is pretty much my girlfriend. lol.

    I believe its about an 06 or so? But its been a nifty little toy for the time I've had it. One thing I learned the hard way is you have to respect it or you'll end up with 2nd degree burns and your leg wrapped for a month :eek:

    Kayak fishing is a great hobby that is relatively unexpensive and healthy. You will have around a $1500 initial investment if you buy a brand new boat and paddle, but after that it's just gas to get where you're going and the price of bait/lures.
