Only if the bike rides you :)

guys, it's SUPERMOTO. motard is french for motorcyclist. supposedly to be used to people that ride said supermotos.


now that i've been an ass... is there a rule of thumb of inches you remove from wheel, inches you remove/add to the end gear? or the point is to get more torque anyway?

That's probably not a bad guide, but don't know if there's rules of thumbs for all situations. The smaller wheel will undercut more, so a longer chassis would help stability. BMW new X650's have ~near the same chassis dimensions for XMoto w/17" front wheel compared to 18" and 19" front wheels of other 2 models.

But a Norton Commando has a long frame and it handles like a dream: it was the first road racing bike oem new.

JUST be careful. All chassis dimensions are heavily dependent on many clearance and weight shifting performance factors. Not everyone rides the same, so they may never experience what you would.

Please post what you do though!

Also, why does it say Suzuki on the side? :)

That's a nice XR. I was gonna sumo mine, but it just seemed like a lot of money to modify my dirt ride for street use, then to switch it back whenever I wanted to get dirty again, so I bought one of these today....
