I'm sure you'll like the 250 I got a 2007 XT225 and like it very much.You and I are the same size 5'10" and 170, and the bike fits me fine. I love the six speed trans, and yes, 1st is pretty low, but That'll come in handy in the dirt. My 225 is getting 85 miles per US gallon, which is great.
Have fun with your new XT.
