Currently I have this
Im considering freshening up my stable and am considering adding a supermoto while subtracting the first two bikes. You'd have to pry the last two bikes from my cold dead gloves.
The cruiser is boring and horrible at everything except taking me to school and work. The street CBR is an AWESOME motorcycle but it sucks taking me to school and work and just riding around town. 170+ horsepower is useless in town. I have begun riding it less and less and now it seems I only ride it on Sunday rides up the mountain or bike night (which I rarely go to). The track bike is a CBR identical to the street bike (except the track bits of course) and is absolutely AWESOME since it has literbike power and the weight of a heavy 600cc class machine. The CRF250 is a hell of a lot of fun and has really opened my eyes to a different type of bike (even though I'm horrible on it since its my first dirt bike and I just got it a few months ago).
The first two bikes are for sale and Im trying to decide if a supermoto is what I need in place of them. Can I get my kicks from an SM after riding a 1000cc sportbike? My buddy has suggested a DRZ-SM but I just cant see riding something with a weight to power ratio of 10:1 after riding something with 3:1.
Ive been looking into a KTM 450/510/525/610/625 etc but Im still unsure. The maintenance on the CRF250 is rediculous and the motor must be made of paper mache because the valves already went out on me after 40 hours so I dont want something like that if Im going to be riding it almost every day. Can I still outrun the boys up the mountain on an SM? My commute to college is only about 5 miles through town and only 2 miles to work.
Im being longwinded so Ill just stop.
