This crappy weather is making me thinking of bringing my plans to try a dirt bike, forward a bit. I have to ride in the rain so I should probably make the most of it, and I'm keen to give offroading a try. No idea about dirt bikes at all though and I don't want to spend too much. Can you get a decent condition one for 2-3k? Will be commuting just under 200kms a week for 6 months before I'd likely sell it, and trying a few easy trails on the weekend. Any particular models I should be looking at? I'd be going for something with dual purpose tyres I suppose.. Cheers!
