Default Geezer needs advice

A friend recommended a Kawasaki Super Sherpa 250. I'm 6'3" and 260lbs, and it seems small to me. Seems like the same issue with the Yamaha TW 200. I'm looking for a dual purpose bike I can load some fishing gear or a grandkid on and head out on a two tracker. Am I wrong re the size thing? Any other recommendations are appreciated.

Good advice. If you're going to ride two-up, get the DRZ400.

2 up on a 250 might be painful. Go a little bigger and I think you will be a bit happier.
