Soon maybe. I'm definitely curious.

I feel it's a bit over the top... I ride because it's fun, nothing more. Of course it can be a devouring passion, but it looks from the film that they try to make it into some of religious commitment that guide you through your life ? Not sure it's the right message. Not feeling it should be a 0 or 100% thing.

Great idea. Put knobbies on a $20000 street bike and ride it in dirt. No way you will ever lay it down and scratch the shit out of all that plastic.

It can be made roadworthy again by simply doing a wheelswap and removing the skidplate.   A lot cheaper than what Roland Sands did to that $80,000 Desmosedici

It's plastic, it can be replaced. Maybe not something to do if you can't afford to. Plus it looks like a lot of fun and that is really what motorcycling is about.

Don't get me wrong, I am still thinking an MTS1200 is the way to go... But this makes me think, what about an HP4...

These guys just got a lot of publicity for their shop.

For something that really wasn't that expensive...using some wheels and tires they already had, re-purposing the cast off stock exhaust, and playing with the stock forks and suspension.

Repainting the whole thing was probably the most work...

Its such a stupid build

Dont you need leverage in the dirt... how do you control it in the fetal position

That Roland Sands bike pisses me off too. What a waste

Let me guess, you have never ridden in the dirt.

For many reasons, that bike is completely unsuitable for that task. It is a poser bike which is impressive to poser wannabees who know absolutely nothing about that kind of riding.

I'm having such a hard time deciding what color to get my street triple r in. I am leaning towards crystal white, fully dressed. Matte graphite is sexy and more refined looking. But then there's black. Good old sexy black.

Once you go black...

 

Just don't get it white. It's such a pain to keep it clean....
