Where do you ride Supermoto?

Recommended Posts

If you aren't fortunate enough to live close to a track, what have you done to get your jollies off away from the public roads? Invaded go-kart tracks or AutoX events? I'm looking to get some good SM action in soon. I'm jonesing really bad. I'm in SW Ohio, if you know a place.

ive thought about an autox course, could slap a hitch on the car i drive in them and take the tard with me :applause:

i have lots of canyons near me, so im always in them, then there are 2 places within 2hrs, both kart tracks, but one is right next to a road course where i track my r6.

Beaverun raceway is just over the border in PA. Great track.

"Normal" tracks are a bit too big for the 'tard. I did Tsukuba and Ebisu in Japan on the 'tard while my Gixxer was OOC and it was all 4th and 5th gear WOT with the occasional 3rd gear, and they're considered tight tracks. Still fun, but I have more fun on the smaller sized kart tracks. Haven't seen too many since I moved here.

Beaverun Wilson circuit is a kart track. .9 miles and about 13 or so turns. Kart open practice days include sm bikes. Ride all you want for $20.

That sounds nice. Might be worth a trip sometime. Too bad I'm like 10 miles from the IN border. Wrong side of the state.

Look at Supermotojunkie.com. I think there are Indiana tracks. My buddy used his DRZ at Beaverun and had a great time. MUCH more fun than on public roads

Cool. You will NOT regret it. I had a great time even on a WR with street tires on the stock skinny dirt wheels.

Oh, I know how fun it is. I rode plenty in Japan. I'm just new to the area.

I better find a good source for tires now.

Not a motard track but Summit Point WV Jefferson course is nice and tight. Fun for a road course...

Mike

Summit Point also has the Shenandoah Circuit. i have not been on it yet, but i hear it is a bit scary for sportbikes due to how tight it is and some walls, but for a motard, it would be much better. Ill be there in early june on my motard and ill post up about it.

I checked their site a few weeks ago and there was nothing for SM on it any more. I hope we have not lost this track. I also emailed them and never got any reply.

I went to the track in Camden today www.gandjkartway.com and I was the only person there. No karts, no other bikes, just me, myself, and I. It's totally sweet for tuning; go run a couple of laps, pull in and make adjustments, go back out at will. Totally sweet and only ten bucks. It's a 1/2 mile track and is kinda fun It has a couple of decreasing radius second gear corners, some tight stuff, and a couple of straights that let the DRZ eat all the way near the top of fourth gear.
