    alot depends on how big of a person you are... how much you weigh. how tall,
    you gonna be racing or just trail ridding?

    If you're only trail riding weight isn't as much of an issue so you could go with a 250 if you find a good deal on one. It wouldn't hurt to check out ebay.

    BTW, kawasaki makes the kx125

    Honda CR125
    Kawasaki KX125
    Suzuki RM125
    Yamaha YZ125

    Nah, go right to the 250, you should be able to handle it unless your silly and try outrageous stuff.
