I'm sure you already know - the 'SM' at the end of the model designation stands for 'supermoto'. They are a soft, sticky compound - I rode mine on a few long, straight, boring trips and wore them out very quickly in the center.

You live where there is good riding, should be less of an issue.

I'm tired, dirty, full of bug bites and hungry. But here's the new and improved ENja...
























Can't wait to finally go for a ride! Still have a couple of things left to do... torque the wheels, tighten nuts and bolts, etc.

Thoughts, comments, suggestions???

Sweetness.


I like all of it except the bash plate, where I would have mad a nod to beauty and tried to stiffen a fiberglass belly pan, or just have it there as a sacrificial energy catcher.

Hi JD, glad you made it home safely! Can't wait to hear all the lies about your trip! I fly out to Charlotte late afternoon tomorrow for a week. Any chance you can come over to our hacienda in the morning?? We aren't too far.. behind the prime outlet in Williamsburg. Call Mike and let us know whether or not you can make it!
