Hi Guys, looking for some advice on where to start. Really interested in an enduro bike... so advice will be appreciated! What bike brand? What year model? What price? And why? Remember beginner... oh and what not to buy! Level of experience is Zero! I have my license and that’s about it!!!

Thanks

Crf 230, TTR 230 250( more scarce) easy to ride, if you get more serious and want to upgrade easy sale and should get your money maybe even a small profit, then look at enduro/ adv bikes,  or fuck it just dive in and get a 500 2smoke, and you'll be cured one way or another :laughing4:

There is a XR 400 coming up for sale soon.  Kickstart only, but a good starter.  I will pm you the owner details.

If you're keen on enduro and more off road driving I recommend starting off on something smaller, depending on your size it could be a 250 e.g Honda XR, Yamaha XT,  or Suzuki Dr. I learnt on an XR250 before upgrading to my G650GS, which is fairly small still, but then I'm quite a slim guy. If you're taller a 400 or 600 XR or 650KLR or or similar could also be great to start on. Basically I'd start one or two sizes smaller (and cheaper) than what you eventually want to ride, learn on that and gain confidence before upgrading.
Have fun and stay safe.
