drz400sm

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think of these? I know they aren't that powerful but how is reliability? This would probably be driven on the street more than it would actually be raced.

But there is a local place about to setup a motard course so I may get to play around on a track with it some too.

look at the drz400 forum...it's really not a bad bike. if only they had an extra 20hp from the factory...

gas tires and oil is all you need for it. only downsides are no 6th gear and they r a little heavy but if you but some TLC into it it can be a really great bike that can run with the rest

So many people say that. Only down side is most of my buddies ride liter bikes. No way I can keep up with that on any SM bike.

SM hasn't caught on that much here yet. But there is a supermoto track opening soon locally so maybe it will catch on.

I have the exact same problem. It kinda sucks trying to keep up to guys driving so fast all the time. I just basically stick around town though so it's not usually a big deal until we hit the highway. They're usually the ones trying to, but barely keeping up with me around the city lol. I let a few of my buddies with crotch rockets try my supermoto last summer and they put their 1000's up for sale shortly after to get sm's.

if by "local" you mean thousands of miles away, the suzuki dealer i work at has a small sm track set up on it. its 2 old car dealerships that had adjoined lots so the tarmac outside is huge. we had a bunch of loads of dirt trucked in an put in some jumps, and there is a section that was never paved so it is all dirt, we hosted some mini-sumo races before the residents (1/2 mile away) complained about the noise. so now its a track we let people test out machines on from time to time

A local raceway (that races cars on a regular basis) decided they wanted to get into motorcycle racing. For whatever reason they decided to do supermoto.

Where in W.V. are you?. There is BeaveRun in Pa. by Pitts.. It may not be "in your neighborhood" if you are in southern part of state though.

I tend to think that if a track is within six hours of me, that is a local track.
