should i expect to see a supermoto lign up at spoons for 2013 ............i will be most impressed if you lot get the back end backed in" />
I would love a supermoto...but only as a second bike...so I am afraid it will still be the gixxer that turns up at spoons.
Would Really like a WR400...with sm wheels and the dirt bike as well.
1500 well spent!
It's a shame so many of these videos are massively over-edited and then spoiled further by an awful soundtrack. Surely the bikes would have provided the better soundtrack?
I hear you ....but ...I'm not sure I totally agree.
I think we are still a long way from the day when the sound of a revving bike engine makes it to No.1 in the charts.
You are right, the 'sound of engines' was never a big seller in the charts (my brother had an album of 'scramblers revving' when i was a kid in the 70's)....But Dub Step is just so all pervading on youtube, just like 'new metal' was 5 years ago.
Have ridden WR250s and 450s off road. They are amazing and help you build your skills. Like a labrador, get the job done, make you feel good, minimal fuss.
Was offered a ride on a YZ450. This is more like riding a lion where you have to jam a cactus up its ass to make it go. Terrifying, but oh-so-good when ot goes right.
'(my brother had an album of 'scramblers revving' when i was a kid in the 70's)'
The 70's ? - That would probably be the 'Now! That's What I call Scramblers 3' album then. " />
I don't remember what it was called but it was easier listening than the Showaddywaddy
and that god awful dancing they used to do
I think there's a few peeps on here with excellent pooter skills to cobble together a great track, full of engine noise.
I'd be a backing singer and who knows, a number 1 in the charts maybe" />
Hope you're not thinking
in terms of James May's interpretation of the Top Gear theme with engine sound recordings? give me dubstep anyday!
And, anybody should have a go on a supermoto on twisty roads, hairpins, uphills, bumps, as long as the straights aren't too long or the corners too big and sweeping, you'll have a blast just a bit tedious on the dual carriageways and motorways, a big 600cc plus one will be a bit more capable of that, miught have to crouch down out of wind blast though!
i would love a motard but most like like the crf450,wr450 have a huge seat hight so i cant touch the ground 39inch is mad
**the CRF and WRF and many **
others are motocross and enduro bikes, they are often converted for supermoto use, which means smaller diameter wheels, and to be right really need the suspension shortened and stiffened for road or even supermoto race use, off road suspension is as you say, tall and somewhat wallowy! does sink down a bit when you get on board though you can get away with cut down lower seats on supermoto's too, not sure of the exact seat height of the production factory supermoto bikes like Aprilia SXV, Husaberg 650, Husqvarna 510 etc, Honda FMX650 and Yam XT660 supermoto and Suzuki DRZ400SM might be more reasonable height
