Actively Looking

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm actively shopping for a supermoto right now. I prefer street legal and still something I can come out and do an occassional track day or race. DRZ400SM would be ideal but they seem to be a pretty wanted item. I have a guy coming to supposedly buy the superchicken when I get home from Japan.

So my point is keep your eyes peeled for me would you? 3500 dollar price range.

I'd love to rip the SXV for a weekend, then give it back

And I've seen quite a few DRZ's in that range Nick. Just gotta wait for a local one to pop up.

Post order came up like this.

https://www.chicagolandsportbikes.com...d.php?t=117776
https://www.chicagolandsportbikes.com...d.php?t=117775

So the order of the titles confused me. I didn't see that this was in the SM forum.

Good luck looking.

Without being an ass seems some of these bikes must have been owned by Steve McQueen.

The thing is about these bikes.IMO

Not that you, or even the other guy, that owns one and is trying to sell it.

You might have ridden it like you stole it from day one.

God bless ya, but if the skid bar is warn down.

I want another $500.off

Well, hopefully when I get home the superhawk is sold. Then I'm buying a DRZ. I can't wait to clown around on a street legal supermoto. Still not sure what I'm buying.

Preferably general local area. Alot of those ADV ads are way out west.

Lets see he's 23 and it has a skid bar???

OR he's 42 with three kids and the bike has original tires on it.

Which bike? The KTM that steve posted?

The superhawk gets picked up Sunday when I get home. Then I'm shopping with cash in hand. I have 3500. Not sure I want to fork out another grand.

I'm thinking I want a DRZ.
