Anyway... Here you go.

Cool.

Seeing as how I'm track bike stupid, what exactly is the bike you're running? It looks like some kind of MX or pit bike with all that clearance.

It's a Supermoto Tele.

A hybrid between a dirtbike and sportbike. You start with a dirtbike or enduro, change the 21/19 rims for 17s. Add an oversized front brakes... regear it a bit for higher speeds and enjoy the lightweight agility of a dirtbike and the control and stickiness of sportbike wheels. Also, they are very crashable, meaning it cost very little to lay one down. I have about 4 times and still have not spent a dime repairing.

Also they have lower power than a sportbike, so less chance to get into trouble with it... I have only spun the rear a couple of time.

They are wheelie happy when prepped right... a prep for mine will get done over the off season.

Also, you can decide to hop off road and it's good to go. SMs are the tits.

I use a standard MX one for RMZs... I use the screw under the speedo and two zip ties to hold it in place. About $25 spent... haha. Zip ties are your friends.
