Polished the header for my Supermoto
Got my Acerbis plastics kit this week
Now just waiting on the rims to be built and I'll be terrorising the idiots that got their drivers licence out of a weetbix packet

header and plastics fitted

Mrs BCB said the old plastic shrouds with the KTM stickers looks better than the new plain

it's been just over a month and a half but finally I have the bike I envisioned when I decided on a dirtbike commuter 

picked up the rims yesterday arvo and spent about 3 and a half hours to do a bit of cutting plastics and squeezing things to fit

blew my mid that I could program the speedo for a different circumference wheel, thumbs up to KTM 

get up early today to go for a ride..........................................pissing down with rain :cry:

Most fun I've had on any bike has been my motard.

finally got a (semi) fine day and rode my favorite range 6 times :aaggl:

2 were early morning and the road was still patchy wet

2 more times after breakfast and the range was almost dry

got home and one of the lads from work rang to go for a squirt 

so off again and this time she was dry as a bone 

managed to keep the young fella at bay (he has raced up at the Mako where Jack Miller raced in his younger days)   :buttrock:

@violetpop you are definitely right about the fun that is had on a supermoto

I've had a stupid grin on my face for most of today, and unless I'm going senile then it must be motard fun factor off the richter scale

I'm in love with my new toy :wub:

that's what its all about! Light weight, punchy engine, grip for days and you can just chuck the bike around how ever you please, brake as hard and as late as you wish. Leg out knee down take your pick. Go and carve up some big boy bikes now haha

Pics are awesome.. That bike, I want to have a go!

that's it in a nutshell :asciidity:

do need to gear it up a bit though 

rims I finally went with didn't come with a sprocket so I've had to use the 52 tooth one that came with the bike

did see 155 today and didn't hit the limiter

the guy on the Husky recons his does around 170 before it hits the limiter, he has a 46 tooth rear 

mine cruises good at 80, but at 100 it feels like it needs another gear

It sounds like you're on the right track. This unfortunately is the trade off with motards and finding the gearing sweet spot. I geared mine up for the commute I had at the time and when I would setup for the kart track 14/47 - gear it short. I then found the balance in the middle, got jack of swapping sprockets and left it at 15/44. My DRZ could always have used an extra gear though.

It looks like your bike is in full on mx gearing.. Wouldn't hurt to go up a tooth on the front which might calm it down a little bit.

Going through some old photos motard life, the rmz I used to prepare for a mate in another life, full house, ohlins everything, titanium as far as the eye can see. Gun rider too but that bike made me tingle haha 218d3b1ae6e686418b2238ba65479be3.jpgc76382905c78331cac2441c45d150c73.jpgb8444ccc5b4100f337ee91cf9d38f236.jpgbc7c0a76b850b9e23c827d992652d643.jpg
