what color for my supermotard bike?
 
so 2 years ago i had a neighbor paint a faux-CF paintjob on my bike... it came out alright, but I think I'm done w/ it. I'm driving home for thanksgiving and Christmas and my lil bro does paintjobs for a living. He says he can do the whole thing whatever color I want for 200.

what do you think? I'm REAAAAALLY tempted to do leguna seca blue.

Hahah I hadn't seen that one, that's great. I was thinking something more along the lines of this.

Whenever I get around to having a dedicated track car it will have a similar livery.

I'm glad i thought of this yesterday!



edit: wait... now that I'm looking at this bike naked, I'm tempted to just throw the tank/seat/headlights back on and ride it street-fighter.

edit2: did no one notice that I've been spelling leguna incorrectly? http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/image...ies/shifty.gif

Who came up with the name "supermotard"? I don't think I could buy one of those just because of the name.

kuksul08 11-21-2012 09:30 PM

My guess is it's a combination of Superbike, Motocross and Retard.
Superbike because they usually have 17" wheels with sport tires, lower travel suspension sometimes directly from a sportbike, and they're road legal.
Motocross because they use a motocross bike as a foundation usually - geometry, frame, engine, riding position, etc.
Retard because you act like a complete retard when you ride one - swerving between cars, hopping curbs, wheelies, jumps, etc.

I have learned that "motard" is a French word meaning "motorcycle rider."

kuksul08 11-22-2012 12:30 AM

That probably makes more sense since it originated in Europe. I just made mine up.
