I hardly ever got to ride my dirt bike, so I kept milder d/s and sold the straight dirt two smoker and bought a better mtb...and now i get to consistently ride the trail we would love to ride on dirt bikes but can't, also i got even better at picking good lines and my conditioning is better. it was a good choice as most my dirt bike did was sit in the garage waiting for those few, all too few, times a year to be ridden. If I lived elsewhere, I would have kept it and stuck to it, the way it is, with the amount of time I have, it was a good choice.
One more thing, get a good mtb, just like with enduro bikes, it will make it a lot better experience and things wont break (as much).
