Best bike for 4k?

Riding will be mixed - everything form sand dunes, dirt road, trail, mountain, woods, you name it. I am 5'10, generally a 30-32" inseam, 195lbs and pretty strong. I'm also a relatively new rider but have experience on street bikes. 

 

I'm looking for used, but not knowing much about bikes don't really know where to start or what to stay away from. I don't really want to have to much to worry about in terms of maintenance, but I don't mind doing the routine stuff on my own. 

 

Would appreciate some recommendations on specific models and years, as well as mileage/hours to stay under.

Get a Yz 250

2T or 4T ?

A newer 06+ YZ 250 2t would be a good chocie.

200/300 EXC

Yeah a Yz with an aluminum frame and the SSS forks. Not sure what years but it think 06+. Yes its a 2 stroke

2T or 4T ?

Open to either

Tempted to tell you to get a CR500 for sh!ts and grins.. A KTM 300EXC would do you fine.

Thoughts?

The Duke is more for on-road riding. If you get the 09' CRF450, the first thing you should buy is a lowing link for the back end. Makes a WORLD of difference in handling.

I know, just another bike I've been wanting ;)

Honestly bro, if your looking for some straight torque and power, you cant go wrong with a newer kx450f. The question is can you handle it? I dont know your abilities but I can tell you if you want the fastest bike around get a kx, cr, rm 500. I ride a kx250f and insanely worked kx125 comfortabley but like I said I dont know your riding ability so I dont know what to tell you to get. Just make sure if you get somethings thats crazy you can handle it. If your not too experienced I can recomend the kx250f. I went from a put bike straight to mine when I was either 12 or 13.

Added a couple more to the list 

Bump

The second yz250

06+ yz250 gets another vote.

 

The 09 crf450 is nice, as is the 2012 kx250f though.....

Yz250

Overall, the Yamahas have a great rep....
