At your size and if you are starting into the b class i would say you would be fine.You may miss the handling of the smaller 250 though.

Man you need a 450 now. Im 5'8" and 160 lbs I just got my 04' 450 last march. People think I'm too small for it when I'm standing next to it. The mechanic at the dealer didn't belive me when I told him that it was my bike. The bike gets respect from everyone. :cry:

I went about 5 years with out riding a bike and that last one I owned was a XR200. Needless to say I steped it up a notch or three. I love the 450's power, handeling, everything. Its a rocket!

The first month I had it I could only ride it for about an hour before it wore me out. But now I'll ride it all day, it will get you in shape quick! At your size you should have no problem handling it. I did however break my forearm and now have a titanium plate and 6 screws holding it together. :cry: But thats not the bike's fault! I thought it could jump anything.

Go for it, join the happy family of the respected 450 riders.
