Thanks for all valid replies  :152:

I'm 75kg, 5'8 feet and sadly enpugh my budget is far from unlimited...I'd like to keep it to 2-3K Euros but will consider slightly more.

I dont need anything too extreme such as trials or hard enduro. A light, small, 20-30hp bike with 10 inches of suspension travel shall be good enough. However, I need to consider some practicalities too...

I will have to get rid of my sccoot (space and running costs restrictions mainly). I appreciate it will never be as practical. However, it needs to take on the 10-20 mile daily work commute in congested traffic on tarmac roads and be able to carry my gym or shopping bag.

A friend reccomended I look at the CRF 250 Rally. It seems like a very practical bike, shame about the price. How is it in the dirt you think?

You may want to look at a Kawi KL250 Super Sherpa (if you can find one) or, the bit more modern, KLX250.
