So no more SS bike for me....

Got ride of the Ducati this weekend and picked up this badboy so I can ride dirt. Looking into what it will take to motard it out and get it street legal. Figured I could have more fun with this since I can ride it on or off road. Its been since 03 since ive road a dirtbike and ive always ridden 2smokes but its crazy how far the 4 strokes have come. This things actually got some to it, the last 4stroke I rode was a yz426 and it was a pita.

Sweet, is it a 250? Dual Sports are so much fun, you can literally go anywhere

Check out motostrano.com. They have a bunch of different complete supermoto conversion kits that includes wheels, tires, brakes and everything you'll need. I recently converted from SS to supermoto and it is a lot more fun for riding street. You get smoked in a straight line and there really aren't tight enough twisties in Houston to give the SM an advantage although they are more fun, but if you are going from point A to point B in town you can get there faster than anything on the road. No more sitting in traffic. Sidewalk, jump the curb, cut through a field, the city is now your playground.

Yeah the 450 really has some grunt to it, and if you tard it, you would probably never go back to dirt trim again

Now thats what im talking about! I was talking to a friend who races motards a while back and he was telling me how nice it is to be able to cruise the grass median when traffic is at a stop.

Good place for some good deals, however the service isn't up to my standards. Heard some sub par reviews over at SMJ.

Only reason i went w/ them was the price compared to others, but i ended up calling them twice a week just to make sure they had my order right, and to check the status. Shipping took like 2 & 1/2 weeks also.

If your willing to stay on top of them like that, you shouldn't have any problems.

No, but who cares, having a bike that can take on stairs like it's nothing, is where it's at.

yeah! I am buying a camera next week and I need to post a vid of my 10 minute morning commute. It is so much fun and unlike a wild SS ride you don't run the risk of getting as badly hurt. I pull out of the driveway and up the stairs of the church across the street. Make a B-line across the parking lot, little wheelie just to wake me up, over the curbs, through the grass and onto the next block over. Exit the neighborhood after never having to slow down for the speed humps, come up the the light at Braeswood get on the sidewalk, skip traffic at the light, ride the sidewalk halfway over the bayou bridge, drop off the curb back onto stella link, take a left and cut through the construction site getting squirly in the gravel, and pull into the office with a smile. 10 minutes, 3 miles, and the most fun ride you can have while never going over 35 mph.

i've seen some really cool things happen around me on my supermoto. my favorite to date is a kid tossing a football as I came around a corner into the neighborhood. The receiver got nailed in the face because he was paying attention to the BRAAAAAAAP and not the ball.

It's fun as . I wish I would have ridden dirt bikes more when I was younger. I bet the guys with some serious dirt skills can thrash these things on the street.
