And the video?
Have you posted the video anywhere yet?
I bought a '09 Sherpa for my wife brand new in 2011. She's probably ridden it 25 miles, I've run it up to 2k now on a few short weekenders to Gifford Pinchot.
It is a great bike, and I've bought another one, a 2003 for my brother in California. After several month's of telling him the benefits of the Sherpa over other DS bikes, I sent him the link to your report. Easy decision for him to make after he read your assessment of the Sherpa... THANKS!
Anyway, I'm pretty close by in Elma, between Olympia and Aberdeen. If you guys want to add a rider on a day trip to the Olympic Nat'l Forest, Cap Forest or Gifford Pinchot, let me know, be glad to go for a ride some time.
