They are great little bikes for light trail riding and tooling around local streets. The only trouble I ever had with mine was that it was a bit too small for me, and more in line with smaller riders that are not more than about 5'6" or so tall. But, it was bulletproof and I do not think anyone could ever break it or wear it out!
Kawasaki also sold a KLX400 in a dual sport version that is a rebadged Suzuki DR-Z400S, and it weighs just about the same as the little Super Sherpa, but has an engine designed in conjunction with Yoshimura that cranks out a real 40 horses and will scoot down the highway at freeway speeds all day long, will hit over a 100, and gets 50 plus miles to the gallon. It is even better as an off road bike than the Super Sherpa because of the longer suspension travel and more power.
If toys will get me in the door when it is time to go, I have it made!
