Adrian from Northside Motorcycle Tyres and Service (https://www.facebook.com/NorthsideMotoa ... es?fref=ts) let me ride his racebike. It was awesome, I couldn't believe the power difference to my poor old DRZ. It has a quick shifter set-up for flat up changes, a slipper clutch and ridiculous front brake set-up among other things.

Your probably right Dale :D

I have ridden a mates WR450 on the trails, it's power isn't impressive like the CRF450R. I actually didn't like the WR, I preferred the DRZ's plusher suspension and forgiving seat for casual trail riding. dontknow

Out on the supermoto track you get sore arms from holding on under acceleration, forcing the bike through corners and holding yourself back under heavy braking. Bike comfort doesn't come into it icon_thumright

if you liked the crf it's about time you tried my postie.... your closer to the ground and you get the same rush with that feeling your going too fast to make any corner :O and are wondering when the breaks are bout to fail.

The main thing I liked about the CRF is it was trying to power wheelstand anywhere in any gear at any rpm. I doubt your postie has that problem ;)

Always thinking about it :)

I still like the DRZ as a low maintenance trail bike. But I wonder if I should sell it's supermoto set-up and get an unregistered supermoto race bike. Then I wonder if I should just put a big bore kit in the DRZ....
