treyZ28 I on the hand think you should get a 250 and ride in parking lots and such. Take it to a track and learn to ride there.

Just dont try to impress friends. Impress the maturity as cliche as it sounds. I know its hard at your age so I wont make any hypocritical judgements. I've done my share of 135mph in a 25zone. man that was fucking retarded.

Street is VERY different to dirt, but at least you'll get used to the controls and learn how to handle a bike.

With the road knowledge you'll get from driving, and the bike knowledge you'll get from the dirt bike, you'll be a couple of steps ahead of where you're at now. Also, you'll be able to learn about bike maintenance, another plus.

slick1537 Definatly learn to drive a car first. Learning to ride a bike isnt that hard (IMHO), but you should learn all the rules of the road in a car first, and be comfortable with them. It will be a lot easier to concentrate on your bike if you don't have to worry about, oh, here we are at a 4 way stop, which direction do I yield to. That will all come second nature to you after you have been driving for a while. Depending on your size and your weight a 250 is probably good.

sidewaysducati Yeah, start with a car.

You've got to know the rules before you can break them, if ya get my drift.

At least by the time you get on the bike, you won't be as nervous about driving, and will have a better idea of what to look out for, anticipate trouble, etc, etc.

decius Whenever you're legal to ride (not sure how old you have to be based on wherever you're from), get a 250 at the biggest.
