yep, pretty popular in Germany. Single make (MZ 125-SM) with srtict tuning rules, kinda like IROC for the two-wheeled 12-15 year-old crowd. They run on dirt/pavement combo tracks just like the real supermoto races do.

Bend-over and prepare to be treated like a turkey.



Then hand him your wallet.

Finaly, another great article on the fun of riding a small bike! Going fast on a small bike, for me, is a lot more fun than going slow on a big bike. I have spent most of my riding on small bikes (Honda VT250, Bultaco Metralla Mark 2, Aprilia 250, etc., various small older Hondas, etc.) and have found that with a curvy road, they are as quick (nor fast) as the big bikes. I find the Motogp 125 class to be the most exciting (five guys going for first place on the last lap, at cornering speeds higher than the premier class). Thanks for the great review!

Actually, Cascade Moto sells MZs too (www.cascademoto.com). They're in Portland. Great dealer too!

Yes my son is 7 and we ride on the Geezer Glide occasionally.



I wouldn't subject anyone to the rear of the Brutale although my girlfriend has been eyeing it lately.

I was just in University Honda in Seattle, they are an MZ dealer now. They have two of this exact bike in stock. Pretty nice looking in person. It's the shop on Capital Hill (relocated from U-District).

Gee, a 300 lb. 125 4 striker. What won't they think of next?



Makes me want to go home and hacksaw a cylinder off my CL350.

Now, now, don't be a killjoy. I know which bike I'd rather ride as far as suspension goes. Besides, are you certain that the CG on your twin wasn't located about a foot higher in relation to the axle centerline?
