I rode my buddies Kawasaki Super Sherpa today. I hate to say it but I did not want to get back on my TW. This bike has alot of the things we beg Yamaha to build into the TW. A smooth powerful 250cc with a perfectly geared 6 spd tranny, stainless exhaust, disc brakes front and rear, slightly bigger tank, massive aluminum hubs, amazing suspension with adjustable preload and compression on the rear shock, factory O-ring chain, oh and get this...... it even has a clock! 2009 Kawasaki Super Sherpa | motorcycle review @ Top Speed Seriously a very nice bike. Then I noticed his tires and started to laugh...... "OMG! look how skinny your tires are"
