If you know a decent amount about dirt bikes to where you could perform engine repair then i would buy a used one because they are about 2-3 thousand dollars less

Used bikes are WAY cheaper...and probably a good idea for a first one...wouldn't want to scratch up something new. Plus you may decide in a year that you want a different bike and you'll come WAY closer to breaking even selling a used one vs. a new one.

Most states run classes through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation that will teach you to ride (on their bikes) and test you at the end to get your license.

Most dealers (and cycle mags) sell the plastic parts and stickers for the bikes.
