Are SM bikes really as awesome as all the hype around them wants to make us beleive? or are they just a compromise for someone who can't afford to have a street bike and a dirtbike? I'm not taking about the supermoto races, but just the SM style bike for people in general who are going to use it on the street and/or wood. I think personally, I'd rather ride my DRZ400E ( which is plated to ride from trail to trail or when I go backpacking for a few days ) on the dirt and use my GSX-R1000 for the street. I dont see the excitement in riding a low HP bike that tops out at 130 km/h on the highway. I might just be missing something totally awesome..
