Sure thingy. You lean my Fatso over far enough and it slides on the footrest. And how 'bout this: more speed the further it slides. I bet you didn't think of that. Don't let your foot get trapped underneath.

Good looking shirt, where did your mother buy it? Of course I have myself the much coveted Che Gabevara shirt already but a nice thought nevertheless.

Actually I do it on crf50s with scooter tires on the pavement at my shop, even with my big butt on their it will still only do 30mph and that thing will slide!

LOL! I don't want to be too hard on the new CRF-M, which I'm sure is a nice, rider-friendly package for beginner riders. But the CRF-L had only 14 hp or so, and it was enough of a stretch putting the 20-horse KLX against the 28hp WR.

And if we had trouble "slidden" the rear tire of the WR on pavement, imagine our frustration trying to safely break the back end loose on the CRF!

Gotta run now. I'll be riding the new Fury in a few hours. Try to keep the Honda flames below wildfire status!

Sliding mopeds in your shop, brilliant. I couldn't have thought of that myself.

Default Seriously?

I love these types of bikes. I really, really want one. I can totally see their appeal as a second or, more likely, third bike. That said, if anyone would pay $6200 for one, I'd call them an idiot. To me, that's an insane amount of money for a glorified dirtbike.

Agreed. Now that we have the mini-moto comparo winner, it would be nice to see the Yamaha go up against the Suzuki DR-Z400SM. It there really no replacement for displacement?

Sounds like fun. It'll be up to Suzuki to supply one.
