Not good for off roading but a great learner's bike for on road in town, especially if you are heavier, is the Suzuki Savage (S 40). Small, relatively light, close to the ground, but best of all the single 650 cylinder is very torquey and forgives you for shifting too early or into the wrong gear. Not great for the open road as I find the wind likes to throw you around and for whatever reason the bike likes to hunt around but damn it is fun to ride around town. Cheap new, cheaper used.
