  1. what's that motard like? always thought they would be pretty nice to ride

  2. Not really a fan of Motards, they look trick but a bike with long travel suspension does not make a good handling street bike; too much pitching (weight transfer). SuperMotard = Not good on the dirt, not good on the street but can do both ok)
  3. I'm gunna turn the Sachs 650 into a streetfighter; MX h/bars, small twin enduro type headlights, longer rear shocks to jack the back up for more ground clearance and steepen the head-stem angle for faster steering. It'll be an 'urban commando'!
  4. sounds like an evil bike, not that i know what it looks like to start with.

    you doing all this in-house?
  5. Something like this :)
  6. And this looks like it would be great fun :)
  7. Yep, that's the bike, that styling is not my cup of tea but it is so awesome to ride; a Streetfighter look will make it look a little more aggressive I think.
  8. you doing all this in-house?


    I'll do the mods myself, out of my own pocket just because I think the idea has great potential.
  9. Looks cool (I guess if you're into such bikes) but again, where are you going to use it? Alice Springs & back? Put knobbies on it and let's get it on the dirt roads.... yee ha :D
  10. I'd take it to my favorite set of twistes (Mount Hwy) and see how many sports bike rider's I could scare :twisted:

    Of course it would also be pretty awsome off-road with some knobbies, either way it would be a hoot 8)
  11. I remember when I was young, I used to take my Suz PE175 enduro bike to the Kew Boulevard and smoke all the streetbikes :) Horses for courses so they say.
  12. so has the benelli been sold?
  13. The TNT has gone to AMCN for testing :-( and the Tornado is going to A1 Motorcycles in Brighton to be used as their demo for a little while :-(

    So I just move the trade plates onto something else :)
  14. i guess you have to take the good with the bad (not that i am saying the sachs + motard are bad, but man that bike was nice)
  15. At least you've still got the track bike :)
  16. I've got an ad in today's AMCN clasifieds looking for a Superbike ride, god! I gotta win that World title before I'm 50 :shock:
  17. good luck, lets hope you get something and team netrider has someone to support that they know/ride with

  18. How about winning one John :wink: :D :D
  19. If I have the right team behind me I can :wink:
