'What kind of bike do you ride?' - SM owners, what's your answer?

Recommended Posts

When you're in a store or something with your gear, how do you answer to the uninitiated? Most of the time I say 'Suzuki DRZ Supermoto'. They give me the weird look - and I shrug and tell 'em it's basically a dirt bike with slicks.

Most of the time it isn't worth the trouble trying to explain. If your bike doesn't have RR, GSXR, R6, etc.. they're not going to have any idea what you ride.

So what do you say?

doesn't really matter what you say. The non-bikers (and some bikers) will always ask the same question after you answer

"is that a sport bike or a harley?"

I usually tell them its a harley

SM/supermotard/supermoto is the answer for the people who gust knows the basic , DRZ'sm ( in Greece the only DRZ is the DRZ400 , so just saying DRZ ) is the answer for those who knows better !

I try not to talk bikes with idiots, if I must I say " its a dirtbike with street wheels" then they still give me the deer in headlight look.

Lol , there are many idiots...!

i just tell 'em it's a supermoto.when they ask further i tell them that it's a crossover style bike.the grace and style of gp with the fury of motocross.

when they ask if it's an enduro i'll reply no,it's a dual sport set up for the street.stiffer suspension,much higher gearing,alot bigger brakes and soft sticky track tires.they usually say....cool!or nice bike!etc,etc.

I say "A bike that can wheelie through all 5 gears and have enough torque to do it from a stand still right through to top speed unlike the crotch rockets only producing power at 60mph+" Then they are extremely interested in these bikes. Then again you just piss off the guys who ride crotch rockets cause they know your better than them.

Haha I had a guy on a HyaPUSA pull up beside and ask me when I was going to grow up and leave the huggies behind and ride a sport bike. I told him "on green GO!" I wasted him to the next red light(one block) and then on the next green light he stalled it out. He then turned off to avoid me at the next light LMFAO:ride:
