Anyone on the bullet do any supermoto riding?? Here in Michigan I just started racing last year and looking forward to 2011 racing season.

I'm just messing with you Ryan. Did you buy your new bike yet?
Not yet.. but working on it.

Would like to get that RSV, but it is hard to beat the KTM at half the price used. I also would not feel very comfortable tearing into the RSV, if it needed a major repair. Love the bike though. Getting the itch to ride with supercross season started.

It is unfortunate that AMA dropped it, I thought it would have took off. The series seemed to have a strong following. I guess it was bad timing with our current economic state. I loved my yamaha supermoto bikes, other than the transmissions loosing 3rd gear. Tired of rebuilding transmissions think I am switching to KTM.

Thanks! More like 110%. :-D

Just got the supermoto wheels and tires on this weekend. You're right, it's a bad MOFO! Wheelies in every gear and enough torque to seperate your arms from your shoulders. It doesn't get much more "hooligan" than a 500cc 2 stroke motard.

That thing would eat most hypersports bikes for lunch on a tight twisting road.
I'd love to give it a try.

It's insane how quickly the bike turns. Look where you want to go, and the bike goes there. Very, very flickable. It WILL teach you throttle control, though!
