Cool Daddy Needs A New Pair Of Shoes!

After waffling in 5 different directions as to which bike I wanted to get, I finally took the plunge and bought the 2002 Husqvarna SM570R. It should be arriving in late January. I've also ordered the titanium race-pipe and air-filter.

Anybody wanna' buy a Duc al'orange? I'm selling the Ducati, but I'll replace it sometime next spring. Here's a picture of the new ride:

Thumbs up

Paul this bike looks just AWESOME!

It looks like the NOX, and I have spend quite some time looking at NOX pictures, I envy you
Good thing you ordered the race pipe though, as I think this huge silencer spoils the looks of the bike, not to mention that it's there to spoil the big thumper's deep voice!

I have become a Supermoto fan the last 2 years, spectating only though.
I was supposed to go to the last European Supermoto Championship race of the year on Sunday which was held for the first time in Greece, just 60 km away from Athens, but I missed it as I couldn't even move a finger before 12pm because of late night drinking on Saturday

Ahh, you've just enrolled at Hooligan University. I estimate that only 50% of the time will find both tires on the ground.

Nope, I didn't trade the the Ducati. But who knows, if I like it as much as I think I will, I might not get another sportbike for a while. I rode the Husaberg FS650 last week. That's when I made my decision to get an SM. It's just way too much fun. I recommend you ride one if you have a chance.

I don't know anything about the bike but from the looks of it you won't be doing 150+ in a fifty any time soon. Not my cup of tea but hope you like it.
