From the no experience I have.... I would say take MSF and then do what your gut tells you. I see it this way and plenty may disagree with me. If you get a 250, then you will be done with it quick and want to upgrade. A 500 is almost a 600 so why waste the time on it. If you are going to be a stupid driver, you're going to be stupid on ANYTHING you get, even though the speed is different.
That's what I have learned my from friends who are experienced riders.

But its just my .02...

a 250 or a 500 should do you well. I started on a ninja 600 for the street and even after 10 years of dirt riding I still managed to lay it down and total it.
Ride slow and safe and MSF is a good tool for the beginner.
