Super Moto

How do you guys feel about supermotos?

I have been looking at a 2017 Husky 701 SM, a second bike to the H2 but all my friends say it is pointless and I won't use it etc.

Thoughts?

I have a crf450x set up in supermoto. It is a blast! I haven't put the street set up back on it in about 2 years and leave it in race trim but I have a legit supermoto track 45min from my house. The old saying "it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. " is very true. Also learning how to slide around on a supermoto has significantly improved my riding skills.

The husky 701 is a better street supermoto but still fun on the track. It's pretty heavy for dirt but tons of power for pavement.

I just got done converting my 2003 yz450f to SUMO. The funny thing is it’s ready to be inspected but my work schedule changed and I can’t get to the tax collectors office to change title status. Got my se+ and the plates will get here before I can get the sumo plated.

I am keeping the Super Moto because I do a lot of backroads and wheelies. It’s fun. But if you ride your Super Moto like just any old bike.. then I wouldn’t keep it.

I converted a 2001 YZ426 to supermoto back in about 2005. No title, so it's track only. We had a grass roots series for a few years in the 'oughts. That was some of the most fun I've ever had on a motorcycle. A previous owner of this 426 did make it into an enduro. So there is a lighting coil, and brake light switch in the rear brake. It's a constant temptation to try and make it street legal, lol

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity
