Bingo! This may be your best best. Don't be intimidated by the '650'. Your size and weight are the key. I sold my KLR 650 cause i'm 53 and I got tired of trying to move that bike on the trails. I picked up a KLX, which has made trail riding fun again. But, my son is 6'4" 210lb and he has a new xr650l which is size appropriate for him. Prior to him buying the 650 he rode my KLX a few times, and after a short while his knees were killing him. Way too cramped. My klx in Capitol Reef NP, UT.
