What about a YZ? You're tall and the YZ 125 is the tallest of the 125s... just something to consider.

I bought a 1999 KX 125 for $1200, I am 6' and 200lb, and it fits good and has enough power to through me back. I have heard that for a good all around bike Kawi, makes a pretty decent bike with out any upgrades. It is all a personal preferance , to you have to sit on the bikes and see how they really feel to you, but for a tall guy a taller bike may be in order.(YZ)
