Supermoto -- this is so cool.
What does it cost for a set of wheels for a CRF450? What else do you need to build a decent Supermoto bike?
If you have any good web pointers available, I'd sure appreciate.
And... it looks like there's a really healthy amount of loose dirt on this track. wonder if someone with a set of knobbies could gain and advantage... especially by roosting your buddies in the corners?
How easy is it to kill yourself doing this. My son has a well-tuned '02 CRF that he *ain't* riding, and you never know....
Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Just *had* to find out what this Natalie Jackson person looked like when *not* wearing leathers....
Yep that's her.Originally Posted by Visian
It costs about $800~$1000 for SM wheels and hubs. You can get by with stock brakes but they will warp a rotor under race conditions. I use a stock caliper with a 320mm rotor.
Here is a good primer on getting started in SM SuperMoto Link

Hey her nails match her leathers....
If she's from Umbrella Girls USA, I know the organizer. She lives right up the street from me. The Umbrella Girls are kind of a fixture out here at bike shows, open houses at dealers and the races at Sears Point and Laguna Seca.

Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
It's a LOT safer than road racing. I've crashed doing both and it hurts less. More sane speeds, fun is in the corners and power wheelies out of the turns.Originally Posted by Visian
