    Supermoto


    Any trackdays that are Supermoto specific in New England? I'd like to get into this nitch. Quick search leads me accross the country to Cal.

    NEMM does practice/track days as well as schools, so it's not just racing FYI.

    NEMM at Boxshop in Maine is the one in NE. There is OVRP and Lafayette in NY, Englishtown in NJ, and a track at VIR.

    Re: Supermoto

    Looking to change it up this season. I'm thinking a Husky 701 or KTM smc. I think either will do. This a better decision then going for the Ducati v4s.

    I don’t think the 701/690 classes well with NEMM. Maybe I’m wrong.

    The good news is I think you can have fun track daying one anywhere in New England.

    Worth a couple hour drive for sure. There are bike only practice days typically before a race weekend. I went one day mixed with karts and it was fine, we missed a session at one point in the day.

    I dislike the super hairpin they have there in the middle of the track. It's more than a challenge and is more like a full stop to any kind of track "flow" but experts might have some insight into navigating it better than I do.

    Re: Supermoto

    I did the supermoto race series at OVRP last season with my son. We had a blast!
    He rode a CRF150r and there was some great competition in that class. The starting grid was usually over 20 guys
    I rode the 450 class and the grids were smaller, but some great battles. Had a great season last year.
    It's only like $80 for a practice day. You get plenty of ride time

    Canaan NH is not motard specific but I was there last summer and there are a lot who run there. No huge straights and a technical track make it fun on SM bikes.

    Re: Supermoto

    IMO every track in New England + NYST is fun on a 450 or larger SM. Everyone told me that I would not like running a motard at Palmer, yet I had fun on my WR450.

    I've only ridden Canaan once (twice?). But it was pretty fun on a SM.

    NYST was my favorite on an SM so far. Sadly I only rode it on my DRZ-400SM... which is slow.

    Owning a 701 I figure I'll chime in here.

    701 are fun on any of the local tracks. Loudon, Thompson, Palmer, NYST, Canaan, probably fun at Club Motorsports (Tamworth) can't say though as I haven't ridden there.

    Not sure a 701 would be all that fun at Boxshop (NEMM), or a true supermoto track with the dirt section involved, or not. I haven't tried nor do I plan to. I have 450MX based supermoto bikes for that application.

    NYST did have a supermoto class of racing last year that the 701 may have qualified for but pretty sure everyone was running 450 based bikes. LRRS 701 is technically legal for supermoto classes but again most running 450 based bikes.

    Well you got me all excited talking about supermoto, then you go and bring a 701 into this.
