what is a supermotard?

i went to a trackday last summer and one of those KICKED MY ASS everywhere (except the straights /images/icons/smile.gif where all that work in the twisties had to be re-done on the next lap) (actually, i'm not that much of an a$$. i let him, and 20 other bikes, pass /images/icons/wink.gif )

i thought it was a dirt bike with slicks. i thought the opposite leaning in the corners was kinda cool.

u lucky dog!! i've been trying to talk my hubby into lettin me do the same thing to my DR350. he wasn't crazy about the idea. i bet it'll be a hoot on the street. i know i took my DR through deal's gap one night, with knobbies, and i SWEAR i was going faster thru there than with my streetbike.

maybe that's what i'll do for my next bike. i was lookin at 1 liter duc eaters, but a dr650 supermotard sounds better. did you do the work yourself? if so, how hard/expensive if ya dont mind me asking... DR650s can be found so cheap used...

Yes her93,
I did It myself,but needed some help on building new rear axle and sprocket,as well as adapting bearings on the front,but It´s not a very hard job.
I´ve spent about 25% of the bike´s value,taking mostly used parts.
