I'm thinking about a for sale section on Supermoto Central where people can submit the Supermoto bikes or parts they have for sale. The reason for this idea is to make it easier to search for bikes/parts in other countries. Like in Europe the countries are quite close and postage costs not that expensive. But there is no place where Supermoto fans in the EU can advertise their parts/bikes to people in other countires. Except for the clumsy eBay ofcourse.
Let me know what you think about this idea! Vote in the poll on the right side of the page!

Roadracerx had a little talk with HMC KTM team owner Mitch Hansen. During Mitch Hansen’s six-year tenure as the HMC Red Bull KTM Supermoto team owner, his riders have brought home two AMA Supermoto titles—the most recent coming with the 2008 Premier Title by Australian Troy Herfoss. But with economics dictating a KTM farewell to the American Supermoto racing next year, Mitch and HMC will likewise leave that series in favor of continuing to partner with KTM for the ’09 iteration of the Red Bull AMA U.S. Rookies Cup… while dreaming of a potential, eventual move to American Superbike racing in the meantime.
