The latest addition to Tony's Garage...

WOW is all I can say this bike is amazing. Geomoto knows how to build one hell of a machine. I met with him this morning and had the honor of purchasing his, 02 yz250f. this thing is built to the friggin hilt with every mod I could think of. and to answer your question, yes I do plan to try norway out with it, but I do have a set of dirt wheels on order as well. this bike was purchased to replace my yz125 for trail and Mx riding, but I think it will be doing dual duty on pavement and dirt.






HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

That's too bad. Well the trackdays are pretty lax out there. Not much structure really. They run the bikes, competition karts, then the rental karts on the weekends. On the weekdays its just karts then bikes and you get a ton more riding time in.

I am considering heading out there again on Friday 5/30 if you can get the time off. You will get so much time in that you will just want to leave after a while.

The cost is $30 for all day so its dirt cheap.

Enjoy it Tony. Wish I would have had a chance to talk a little more. Stupid Job

BTW That is the second most pimp Supermoto on the Board. Well actually since I havn't done much to the husky yet I think it may still take the win.

Take care of my baby, I'm glad its going to a good home.

Thank Drama too, he suggested I post it up on here. Drama if I would have made money selling it I would being sending some your way. As it stands I think your gonna owe me some money. When and if the time comes beers are on me

You know that Roman's bike is probably the pimpest sumo out there. It is bad ass looking. At first glance it looks like a factory bike. Your bike is a close second though.

Well first things first I'm gonna get my Husky all straightened out. Then I'm actually gonna cool it for a while because I have a big project coming together for this winter.

You should be scared I'm building a bike from hell next. I ordered a frame today.

Here is a sneak peak of it heart.

Doh I forgot about Romans Bike. Your right! And its my Ex-bike. Dammit Joe now I'm gonna have to order a crap load of stuff for the Husky. Where is that credit card at.



To my wife if you read this I'm just kidding I would never order anything expensive have it shipped to work and put it on the bike when you were sleeping. I'm so glad she doesn't care to be on the computer.

I've got a pic of Dan's bike since he added some nice parts. it's definitely in the mix

I would rank the current sumo's as such:

0) Vcook's ride, just by association. yeah that's right he pulls the ZERO slot. higher than one.
1) roman's factory bike
2) Dan's pimp 510
3) any husky
4) slow yz250f's that have been crashed a lot
5) drz's (at least they start)
6) any other stank ktm
