I am looking to by my first bike and have decided on a dual sport as I will be riding a lot of trails. I am stuck between the two bikes mentioned above. I am 5’10” and about 160lbs. I am 17. I have been riding four wheelers my whole life and have some experience on older dirt bikes without a clutch, but this will be my first bike. I can only get one bike for a while so what I pick is what I get. So the question for me is, will I eventually get tired of the CRF250L? And will it be a good bike for 80% dirt 20% street riding? All the reviews I find on it people say it’s a great beginner bike but 90% of them either have another bike too or end up buying a bigger one down he road. I don’t have that luxury. I have found good used deals on both bikes and want I go with the TE511 for meany reasons. Holds its value, much better bike and more adjustable, and I won’t get bored with it after the first 4 months. But my only concern is that this bike will be too much for me to handle and thus be no fun. What would you guys suggest? Is it doable to learn on the bigger bike? I found a deal that I don’t want to pass up and want a bike that will last me forever. I have good throttle control and know my limits, like I said I have been riding other recreational vehicles my whole life. But I know the Husky is no joke so do you guys think it’s wiser to go with the smaller bike and just be content with the minimal power?
