I would say a 250 four stroke... you can get a good 2004/2005 for $3.5K
The color of the bike doesn't matter at this point... with our skill level, it'd be hard to see the difference in performance, (but on a personal note, I'd recommend a yahama, or honda).

a 250 is too much for someone who hasnt rode in 10 yrs...that bike will end up making it harder tol earn on. a 125 or a 150 will be fine for a while then you can move up. we roll offroad on 50's

He's 6'3"... he won't fit on a 150f. I'd agree with you if he didn't have ANY dirt riding experience.
