I'd love an XR250. Like I've said, an XR250-400 would basically be my perfect bike. I don't mind the kickstart, I've got thighs of steel! Oh, and the other day I saw a red, 2010 KLX250S parked on the sidewalk outside a grocery store. Met the rider (a cashier in the store) and we talked about choices. It was his first bike and he said he highly recommended it after exhaust, jetting, and a pair of 606's.
