Before going any further get yourself a set of MX boots.
Beside the helmet it is most likely the best investment you can make since you new to the dirt putting a foot down or falling is going to happen.
MX boots will save your leg and ankle.
Hiking, street and dual sport are just not the same.
Spend the coin, if you ever need it you will be glad you did.
