if that is your first bike, and you have no prior riding experience, thats too much bike for you.

That bike will break your bones!! But then any bike will. Have you ridden much? Don't let the 85 fool you. That bike will fly!!! Is'nt that a 2 stroke?
Anybody in your family ride? It was a good bike, but I broke my share of bones on bikes and you sure don't want more than what you can handle cause you'll definetly goose it and if your not used to it, it will definetly THROW you! But they sure are fun.

yes that is a water cooled 2 stroke. i spent alot of years on different tracks racing motocross. retired my hi-po 94 yz250 in 2000. they are a blast to ride and race, but you will no doubt break bones. there's not many i havent broken myself. the clavical and ribs usually go first as well as fingers, wrist, and hands. most painful i think was the right femur. broke that in practice trying to clear the triples, and still ran 3 motos with a 5th place finish in the main. but man did i hurt.

Most painful bone I ever broke was my THUMB!?? It split in 3 sections, 20 years ago and it still hurts. I broke it along with my shoulder at the same time but the THUMB, man did that THUMB hurt. I've been seeing a surgeon for my shoulder, debating surgery, but I'm gonna wait as long as I can. All those bones you thought were healed just come back to revisit you when you get older. But they sure are fun! I just rebuilt an XR200 and still do a little trail riding, ride a 1984 Honda VT500 almost daily, and still love it regardless of the broke bones
