'03 XR650 supermoto with all the original parts including the enduro wheels... Big Gun exhaust, rejetted.. MINT-AL fun. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Now the question. I have an enduro on sunday, do I stick with the trusty DRZ or go with this.

The test run on this made the DRZ feel like a toy!!

very nice, wife like it?????????:thumbsup:


She liked the VFR800 better but seeing as she's 6 months pregnant and won't be on a pillion for a year or two I thought it was time to prioritise. The VFR was making me feel obliged to use as much of the performance as I could and over here there's not so much a police force as a traffic branch (or so it seems)

This will let me have my fun on twisty roads without the need for 100mph+ speeds. Impending fatherhood helped in this decision too!!

Lordy!! Who picks a SM as a sensible choice :thumbsup:

Fenty,
Where are you in NI? My family is from Ballycastle County Antrim. I go there every year or so to visit family (with a mandatory Bushmills tour). My uncle has a sheep farm on Fairhead. I am a US Marine stationed in Japan. I have a 650R I bought here in Japan, it is street legal but I use it offroad mostly. Every time I return to NI I think about how great it would be to have my bike there (although there are too many stone walls to worry about).

I live in county down about 20 miles from the Mourne mountains. Top class Supermoto pasture!! However your parents live on what i regard to be the best biking road on God's green earth.:thumbsup:

I regularly used to head up there along the coast road for an ice cream on a sunday afternoon, about a 140 mile round trip. Ballycastle is a bike mecca (one of a few in northern ireland) but it is the one with the best roads around it. Torr head is a blast and 30mph is too much on some of it.:thumbsup:

It's also stunningly beautiful. next time you're over, beg borrow steal (or book a test ride) a bike and rack up some miles.

The wheels were on the bike when I got her. I do know they're off a cagiva mito but as for spacers and such I would need to have a look. I'll try and get some detailed phots on tonight so keep posted.
Also the Mito has a speedo drive off the front sprocket so you need a trailtech speedo or similar run off the front disk. there is also an aftermarket spacer for the stock front caliper. I'll take a photo of that for ya as well.
