Everything i've heard about the Eliminator has been to stay away from it, NEVER go near the high way on one.

Ah, yeah? I wouldn't go on the highway with a Super shepra either?

It's a 125 4stroke single. Who would even think it's a good idea to take one on a highway?

Another bike to consider is that Hyosung 250 V-twin.

I had 2 dealers aware that I was interested in a Sherpa when Kaw said they would be bringing them back. It went from yes we'll be getting 2 to well if you want to put down a deposit down we can get one in for you to look at.

Used around here they are scarcer than hens teeth. Lots of V twins for sale though. Craigslist around heshould be renamed "I've got a V twin that I don't ride, spent a ton of money on for crap nobody else wants on a bike and I can't afford but I want you to pay for my stupidity list".

I picked up the only KLX 250 SF that will be brought into the area. It's all Fonzie's fault.

Soon it will be the PAT, psuedo ADV, tard.

Super Sherpa very popular in the ADV community. Light weight and bulletproof, combined with street leglity.

Wow, um, Ninja is a 250 TWIN, the Sherpa is a 250 single. I'd tend to agree with MOKE on the keeping the sherpa away from the highway. Of the ones you listed if you want to go on the highway at all, buy the ninja 250.

As for the seat height and your back go sit on one, dont just hop on it and off, go sit on it for 20 minutes, hands on the handle bars, see how you feel.

No, its not full proof but do it anyways.
