Right i’m not to sure if this is the right place but here goes.
I passed my test in november and since then i have been using my honda dylan for work but i have always wanted a supermoto and i have been offered a Honda FMX pretty cheap i just wanna know what do you guys think about them and what do you thinks for my first proper bike:)
What sort of distance you going to be doing a week roughly? I use mine loads, well i did before i took it off the road to do some work on her(cosmetics that is nothing mechanicaly wrong), but people do say your suposed to service them loads however i do mine about once a month if that.
Depends what you get, id say you may well be better off with an LC4 engine, such as the 640 or a 660smc.
The 525’s go for around £3000 depending on what year you go for and what the spec is on it.
the fmx is far from nippy, shite bouncey suspention,the engine has no oomph at all, flat as dhoftys chest:D dont waste your money on one get a ktm dude or something fun like wr/yzf etc xt’s are ok bikes as i tune then but standard they heavy and slow, you need to chuck a grand at them min to get em lively :w00t:
Dont let the hard core put you off ,the FMX will do all you want for a first bike , if you want balls out power and handling buy a proper SM ,if your looking for something for commuting and weekends down the twisties it will be ideal .I have ridden a FMX but the XTX is better for a little extra cash.
Alrite mate, good to see there will be another joining the crew. Dries will have somebody to hold hands with as he doesnt ride a proper moto either :hehe: He has a yamy XT is it? Anyway there is normaly a ride out every sunday up to ff for breaky then back down, think some of the boys head over to high beach after aswell. New moto’s always welcome… well anyone is welcome but moto’s more so
