Supermotoz @ Summit Point, 30 July 2010 - July 6, 2010, 03:37 PM

Oh it's time! We have the next date for July, the 30th (Friday). Dates have been announced for August and September; look for separate threads about those.

Washington/Kart circuit featuring a supermoto-specific dirt section.

Tech starts at 7 am.

More to come. We need a good showing to keep these going! The closest supermoto events 2nd to Summit are the Sundays up at BeaveRun which is about 4 hours away. Doesn't matter what skill level you're at, just come do this. $50 and lunch is provided.

What is required to do this?

Do you have to safety wire everything?

I am a total newb. But I would love to take the hyper around the track.

Both Summit and Beaver run are great times. Don't think I'm going to make Beaver Run this weekend though :o( Summit is possible if I don't sell the bike by then.

This will be round 3 on the Washington circuit kart track and the awesome supermoto dirt section the fellas built. Here are a few things about the course:

The dirt section has some jumps that you can roll over or fly over. You can skip the tabletop altogether if you want, although it's easier than the double up toward the beginning of the dirt which you cannot go around but just have to be careful rolling over (i.e. go slow).

The tarmac is very slippery because of some sort of sealant or finish they put on it. I'm sure the kart guys love it, but it takes some getting used to on a bike. I strongly recommend rain tires, if you have them or have the budget to get a set. They are awesome in the dirt too. If you don't have rain tires then plan to run your cold pressures in the neighborhood of 18-20 lbs front and rear.

A hypermotard is going to feel big the first time, as did my 690. However, you get used to running in 1st and 2nd gears, and you may start grabbing 3rd in one or two spots on the tarmac. Just come out, take it easy for a while in the beginning, and have a good time.

I ran the distanzias sm compound, still a little slick.... but they were more predictable than sportcraps..

I ran about 25psi in the rear on a 150

It was fun, I still need to get dedicated motorcycle knee protection and a bigger set of balls to get frisky with.

I'll be taking it very slow obviously. I've got full leathers and shitz so I guess all I need to know is bike prep. I'm definitely not used to dirt so I'll be lookin for some fun gravel trails or something to try to get used to bein loose in the rear

Jacob was there in a speedo

They are happy to have people show up and although I can't promise anything, I'm thinking you can still get away with textile paints. I wear the whole 9 yards though.

Gearwise there are some considerations. If you want to do jumps, you really ought to have mx or supermoto boots because the footbeds are more substantial and transfer the impact across your entire foot. Road racing boots have a fairly wussy footbed. In this same vein, you definitely do not want to be sticking your foot out on the tarmac without slider soles. Sticky soles may facilitate serious injury upon planting weight in a slide.

It'll probably be hot, and the course is physically demanding. I recommend making a concerted effort to get in shape for this event. There's plenty of time to do some jogging and bicycling beforehand. Trust me, otherwise you'll hit exhaustion long before the day is through.

Still, even if you do very little to prepare, it'd be great to see you all out there at the end of the month. I'll update the top post with tech requirements in a day or two.
