Riding Supermoto Locally

I'm scoping out a couple spots around the south side area to setup a track to rip around on. There are actually a few abandoned parking lots / industrial areas right near my house. Anyone down for ripping around on supermotos this weekend or in the near future? Anyone have a good spot we can setup some cones and slide around a bit? We should set something up.

I got the DRZ Monday. It's in pretty good shape. I put some good rubber on it and checked over everything obvious. The guy has it geared to the moon so I have some different sprockets coming for it. He's running a 16 / 41. I ordered a 14 and 15 front and a 43 rear to play around with a bit to make wheelies easier..

All in all I like the bike and it's exactly what I thought it would be.

So lets setup a spot we can really rip around at and maybe go for a street ride coming up soon.

Yes because my race motard is not ridable right now.
