yea that was the thing about the sherpa. I am 6'2" and 210 pounds don't think the kawi would provide a thrilling ride I enjoy. But it is 4t so I could ride it anywhere

But, I think a (real) trials bike with tank seat combo will be my next trail bike
http://www.betamotor.com/en/trial/pa...toio-evo-2t-4t

This tank/seat on a 300 4T would be awesome for tight trails. 6 litres on the fuel efficient 4T should be good for a pretty long ride, of course another is litre possible with the Hebo aux fuel tank (attaches to fork legs).

The 6 speed Beta is good to roll along at a pretty good clip (a lot more than 35mph...)

Anyway, if the trail is tight, I can fly on my trials bike - much faster than on my big long travel enduro bike (an older Husaberg)...

Thanks guys been on the road for a bit. The seat tank combo look like the ticket! Like I said before I dont usually ride for more than 2 hours at a clip unless I have signed a deal with the devil.

Jeeze I can be stupid , I was wondering why my right instep got sore on the Scorpa, that's some good advice!

Also - Overflow tanks are $10.00 worth of Home Depot parts to help cure small radiator issues.
