Which bike?

Post by Jamieb89 » Wed Jun 10, 2020 1:20 pm

I am getting a bike mainly for green laning and i have seen a few that i like but i am wondering which i would be best going with?

Im going to view the following bikes and go from there but i am looking for opinions and reccomendations also.

Yamaha DT 125
Honda XR 125
Honda CRF 125
Yamaha TTR 125
Kawasaki KLX 125
Suzuki DRZ 125

Please could you let me know your thoughts on those and also suggest anything that you may think will be better for green laning.

Thank you.

I'll have a look now. Thank you.

They never made the DRZ in a 125cc version. You might like the DR125, if you want a 125cc four stroke. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.motorc ... 25sm/2008/

The DT was a great bike. Used mine off toad, and it did quite well.

Really though. I've ridden the cg up a few flights (OK about 6 steps) of stairs. How difficult are green lanes? Aren't they just what horse people like to gallop around on and walkers like to turn into footpaths? :crybaby:

have a look at the dt 125 on fleabay it is light blue Β£720 and is in pontefract and looks in really good condition and it is a 1982 model with a recent full engine rebuild
