I'm not exactly sure how it works, but around here there's a loophole in our law's which let you sneak a dirtbike onto the street.
I have a fair bit of riding experience on CR 500's, both in the dirt and on the ice, and they definitely can be a handful, but can you ever really have too much bike?
Seriously though, if I do decide to go supermotard I want to go big bore two-stroke, just for the sheer hooligan madness of it all.
The Yammi's are the popular item. Me? I like the KTM 520 EXC.
There is also quite a few guys on STOCK dirt bikes, Like DR400's, they do ok.
The yammi has a top speed of around 170 km/h so does the DRZ400.
Is there a KTM dealer in Ottawa? KTM allows test rides, I highly recomend a ride on a Duke or a 640 SM. Their top speed is about 180 km/h.
Actually a friend of mine runs a bike shop, and is the only KTM dealer for a good few miles around here. I've haven't talked much to him this summer, and I've never talk to him about supermotards. I absolutely love KTM's, but it's really hard to find a good used one around here and their prices new are substantially higher compared most other manufactures.
