Supermoto rules.



But you already knew that.



I'm amazed at how the popularity has taken off. When I bought my Husky Supermoto just last year, my riding buddies were all like "What the hell is that supposed to be?" and "I don't get it."



Now they're like "How the hell do you do that slide into the corner thing without highsiding?"



Supermoto rules.

I watched the Superbikers event at Del Mar and it was totally cool. The track there was a bit narrow which hurt passing but the format is still awesome and if they can keep the big names in the sport it will do well.

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU PUT STREET TIRES ON A DIRT BIKE?



A SPORT BIKE WITHOUT THE INSANE TOP END AND INSURANCE THAT ANYONE CAN AFFORD.



WAVE OF THE FUTURE PEOPLE. THE TREND HAS JUST BEGUN HERE. GUYS IN EUROPE HAVE BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THIS FOR YEARS.



NOW IF THE AMA CAN COME UP WITH TRACK DESIGNS THAT MIMICK SUPERBIKER TRACKS IN EUROPE AMERICA WILL SEE SOME OF THE BEST RACING IN THE WORLD AT A PRICE THAT ALL CAN AFFORD.



MuZ MAKE A FEW SUPERMOTARDS FOR AROUND $6k. READY TO GO. STREET OR TRACK

Yes, SUPERMOTO does rule. I drove from my home, Jacksonville NC, to Columbus OH to see this kind of racing. I paid my $15 at S. Boston to see it and only got to see about 20 min. of practice. It started raining.



But I don't want to relive that Hellish AMA weekend at VIR here.



That tiny taste of SUPERMOTO practice set off a wildfire in my mind that would not be contained. I had to drive 600 miles to Ohio to bring it under control.



I'm hooked!!



How far is Dallas from here?

You know why the wind always blows in Oklahoma?
 
Because Texas blows and Kansas sucks.

What do you get when you turn off the caps lock? A post that isn't obnoxious to read.

I thought that was the "brain in a tank" guy.



Seriously, who else would think that MZ supermoto was ready for the track? Maybe if the Baghira lost 150 pounds, it might go okay. Maybe.
