The main 4 manufactures all make great bikes. I have had a couple of KX500s But seem to like Yamaha the best. I now ride a 03 WR450F and also have a TTR125LE for my daughter. I would start with a air cooled bike for a beginner. No radiators to crush if you fall over or lay it down. I started my daughter on an early water cooled YZ80 and was doing rad work allot as she was learning and having to stop her allot because she couldn't ride fast enough to keep it cool. Most of the bigger cc bikes can be lowered for smaller riders. The TTR size and style bikes are great around the farm learner type bikes but become to small and under powered very quickly when you really start to get into ridding. A TTR250 would be a good starter bike. I've seen these used pretty cheap The older bigger XRs, The KLXs, DRZs. I like the ones that already have lights. These can be made street legal easily and economically, $100.00 or less. No need to buy high dollar Dual purpose kits. If you want to spend a little more coin the Yam WR250 or Honda CRFX250 are great bikes. Check these guys out they show a few used ones and some non current new bikes. www.peacockltd.com I bought my WR from them. Trail ridding is a wonderful thing
