Although I can appreciate the power, brakes, and handling of the KTM 950 SM. It's a big heavy bike. I have my Triumph Tiger 1050 for that kind of performance. I also have a 2007 Honda XR650L. I'm leaning towards a KTM 520 or Husqvarna SM.

I like the supermotos, a friend keeps this one around for me to ride.





KTM 560 SMR that's been modified to run in the pro class at the nationals. It's real fun to ride in the right terrain.

Not sure exactly and I don't have access to it right now to look. They said it was a tire for an aircraft landing wheel.





It worked pretty well, even in loose sand.
