MCM Supermoto

MCM,

That is a sweet XT Supermoto, probably handles like a dream. One suggestion, get a lower supermoto front fender. I put one on my KLR and it's much quieter and shakes around less on the highway.
I had a '79 XT and it was a blast, (and of course I was 20!). The XT was a great enduro, although stubborn some times. I used to ride single track with my cousin on his trials bike. The bike has a ton of low-end torque. I climbed some very gnarly hills and it just chugged away.
