I agree with scuzz. Those ktm dirtbikes are nice. Only problem is that the 250 sits sooo tall that at your height touching the ground might be difficult

Where's the Honda Love!? I would say CR250 and get the shock and forks re-valved for your height and riding style for trails. However, I rode my friends 2006 crf250x (trail 4 stroke version) that was pretty sweet. The crf250x has lights, electric start, different steering geometry for trails and suspension for trails too.

2008 red TRX700, CCP stabilizer, PRM Desert II, 13T sprocket, 23" Razr 2's, 11/16" sway bar,Elka Stage 2 Fronts, EHS Big 3, UNI filter, IMS PowerMadd Hand Guards, Wiigstyle rear shock re-spring, Teixeira Tech front upper A-arms,Precision Shock & Vibe clamps, Tusk Chub CR high bend, ODI Rouge grips, HCC seat cover, kenda kutter rear.
