Great bike

Brilliant! Especially the rearview of the high exhausts - who needs a HP2 supermoto at about £12500?

mr moto : yup it works well, i changed the tyres and put michelin pilot road 2 (110/70/17 front and 150/70/17 rear). excellent ! hard gummi on top, soft gummi on the sides. the excel wheels have also been modified/reinforced.
the bike is quite low because of the small wheels, despite the big long wp forks. looks a bit fat (because of the big tank) and agressive (the whole thing) but it s ok.
and it s a real pleasure to ride.
the 37/11 shaft drive (if my english is correct) of the r80g/s is a bit "short" for the r100rs engine. the gearbox is standard. so the bike does not go fast (max speed 170 km/h) but is really nervous + torque.

walkabout : yup, it s the ancester of the hp2 supermoto :-). i ve only seen once (mine) for the moment like this :-).

Nice bike!

I didn’t know that arcueil motor was still in business. One of their old PD-bikes are at the HPN-museum, it’s quite massive but also fascinating.

Question Nice

Nice bike, I'm curious about the 150 rear tyre, how does it fit?
The drive shaft is already very close with a 120! did you offset the rim with the spokes?

Cheers
