Information needed plz

Hi, I'm planing a trip to costa Rica at the end of march and I'm planing to rent a bike. The compagny over there propose those kindof bikes for rent:

HONDA XR250 Tornado

HONDA NX4 Falcon

YAMAHA XT600

KAWASAKI KLR650

HONDA XR650



Since im more a sportbike rider(or kind of, I drove cbr600 and I have a honda vfr now) I wanted to speak with real owners to have all the good answer.

I never drove those kind of bike yet but im not planing on a reall offroad trip.Costa rica is not so big and we dont plan a lot of driving every day. 1 or 2 hours max peer day or for 2 days. Going for one beach to a other. Its mainly for popular touristic attration be we want to be on our own.
My girlfriend will be backseat and we just want to travel with a bike instead of a car or a 4x4. wich of these bike are the easyest to drive and is the most confortable?
wich one has the biggest tank (because i would hate to miss gaz in the middle of no where over there)
The road condition over there are bad and those kind of bikes are needed even on commun roads from what I heard.

I would like to know if on one of these bikes I could bring my tank bad(that as mangnetic pad) so my girlfriend dont have to bring everything in her backpack.Or if the tank is in plastic.

Thank you for all appropriate information you could provide me.

Drive hard, drive safe!

Thanks

KLR650 for two up. Large gas tank, comfortable for the most part, easy to manage throttle, reasonable rack on the back to strap whatever gear you need. It may not be the lightest, but it's reasonable. It's a taller bike, so height might come in to play.
