Super Sherpa's

I don't see too many of them around but I think in typical Kawasaki fashion all model years are essentially the same. They did quit selling for a few years (I think they skip from '04 to '09)

This one in CO Springs might be more than you want to spend at $3k

And it looks like the newer ones don't have the sweet gold wheels that the older ones have.
Thanks for lookin' out Coloradical! She really liked an xt250 she sat on so if we were to spend in the 3k range, we'd probably wait for a 250 or crf230. Hoping to stick around the $2k or < range- we're both on "old people returning to college" budgets. The Sherpa's look almost identical to xt250's eh? I bet they ride like tractors (in a good way).

Sorry, I need to keep whatever extra TA parts I have on hand because they are getting harder to get.

I do have an electronic copy of the official Honda repair manual if you don't have one and are starting on a rebuild project.

Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but would make a fun winter bike you could flip for a profit.

Im a fan of the old 80's trials bikes. I had a pair of '85 ty350's (Yamaha) and I loved em. Ill keep you in mind. Thanks buddy. Im gonna look a little longer tho. Dont want to jump on anything to soon.

Yet another birthday is coming up and to treat myself this year, I am on the hunt for a DR650, '96 or newer (magic button required).

The amount I'm willing to spend depends on mileage and farkles, and how far I have to drive from Santa Fe NM to pick it up.

PM me with any leads!

Tater,

Found mine (03 dr) here on adv last year about this time. Seemed to be quite a few up around Denver area. I also looked on bikefinds.com but many were along way away. Give your post an occasional bump and I'll bet you'll be successful finding something pretty close.

Good luck and post up when you find your new bike and we'll get out for a ride.

I need a heat gun for an upcoming project. Doesn't need to be new but of decent quality and not from Harbor Freight.

Outside storage or inside? If it's inside, I've got some for you if you still need them, they're really just dust covers and wouldn't hold up too well to any precipitation outside though. PM me if you're interested.

Or I have a couple others that are a bit more substantial, one is a new one, specific to a new generation FZ1 and another generic (large size I used on my KRS), same thing, pm me if you're still looking.

This is a strange one and it is bike related as I ride at the cabin

We are building a new solar array for PV panels and the last time I did this I used the neighbors old satellite dish mount and it worked great. the actuator allow us to easily adjust the panels.

So does anyone have an old huge 8 foot satellite mount ? I do not need or want the dish but want the complete mount with actuator.

Well, looking for anyone or anything professional around these parts is a tall order

A few xt225's on Clist but I'm thinking a crf230 or xt250 might be better for her in case she likes it and wants to stick with it.

I would rather deal through ADV than Clist, maybe someone looking to upgrade? Doesn't even have to be right away either, no rush.

PM me if you have something you might want to get rid of that fits the bill...
We picked up a 2003 crf230L last night- wish her luck! Thanks for lookin' out guys and girls. Any noob or experienced female riders that want to show her the ropes PM me and I'll get you her email.

Good choice, I think she'll love it!
