    Some questions....

    Supermoto -- this is so cool.

    What does it cost for a set of wheels for a CRF450? What else do you need to build a decent Supermoto bike?

    If you have any good web pointers available, I'd sure appreciate.

    And... it looks like there's a really healthy amount of loose dirt on this track. wonder if someone with a set of knobbies could gain and advantage... especially by roosting your buddies in the corners?

    How easy is it to kill yourself doing this. My son has a well-tuned '02 CRF that he *ain't* riding, and you never know....

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Yep that's her.

    It costs about $800~$1000 for SM wheels and hubs. You can get by with stock brakes but they will warp a rotor under race conditions. I use a stock caliper with a 320mm rotor.
    Here is a good primer on getting started in SM SuperMoto Link

    If she's from Umbrella Girls USA, I know the organizer. She lives right up the street from me. The Umbrella Girls are kind of a fixture out here at bike shows, open houses at dealers and the races at Sears Point and Laguna Seca.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    It's a LOT safer than road racing. I've crashed doing both and it hurts less. More sane speeds, fun is in the corners and power wheelies out of the turns.
