well, a 250 4 stroke has about the same peak hosepower as a 125 2 stroke, give or take a bit.. I'd say if you're new, go for a 250f (4stroke) or a crf250x(basically a crf250 mxer that has been adjusted for aggressive trails)... the 4 stroke power will be easier to control and will be power that you can grow into as a rider.

i have found that gravel pits and mx tracks are nothing alike

and yeah when you get big bikes you cant make the seats higher. people only get so tall

i would start with a 150r maybe a 125 but your light so powerband would be kinda crazy for you
