A good 450 4-stroke would do the trick.

I am 5'10" and 241 lbs.......I would definately go with the 450 if I was to do it over again.

I know the Ole '94 Honda XR200 has treated me very well over the years as it still sits in the basement as a back-up bike.

However, the upgrade to the '05 Suzuki RM-Z450 was no comparison, it's like riding a cadillac in comparison to the Ole XR200.

Yeah but if you're truly just starting out on a bike, you might want to look at a 250 4-stroke. I'm bigger than you and it gets me around just fine. I'll step up eventually but 250 has been a great starting point for me after I went 10 years without a bike, also much easier to find under 2k than a 450. Good Luck! Nothing is better than bike hunting!!

Long live the 2 stroke! Dont rule out a 250 smoker it will save you some bucks!

Learn to love the smell of bean oil and race gas
