Its a great time, its really nice to do things like jump train tracks and speed bumps. Pop over curbs in a parking lot and have the option to "ride" of road if you want to. I have had it for a day now and cant stop! riding it! I have a feeling the 10 will be sitting for a while.

Thanks I did PLENTY of research before I bought it. It was really between this and the DRZ, i really wanted a low maintenance powerful motard and this one hit it right on the money. Oil changes every 3k (but I will do it at 2k just like the 10r) and valve checks every 6k. Couldnt be happier with it, the guy I bought it from had a 440 DRZ all the bells and whistles and he let me ride it after I bought the KTM and the SMC just blew it out of the water!

it does look like fun. I wouldn't mind getting one, but I'd be up in the air between the KTM and the Aprilla.

Nice bike. I just got rid of an 03 625 SMC. It was a fantastic bike. Rode the living crap out of that thing with ZERO maintenance cost. Only reason I sold it was that I was getting really stupid on it. Mile long wheelies, constant stoppies, bouncing off curbs, etc., etc. Serious fun but I was headed for trouble if I kept it. I had already outran the cops a "few" times and I think they were starting to get my number. Haha. You'll have a blast on that thing. Wish I would have kept mine. Congrats. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

supermotos are killer fun. especially the open class ones. I've had my husky 576 since 05. wish I would have gotten something with electric start though.

I will let you know tomorow when I get it plated, i took it out for 5 min today (not plated yet) just bangin the gears to get a feel for it and it has no problem cruising at 70mph in 5th gear low RPMS. I dare to say it will hit 90 with ease!:mrgreen:
