Is it possible that you could video tape your practice sessions so that way I can see what you're talking about?

Well, that's really two separate issues.

But sure, I guess.

Anything you crash on the street or track will recieve damage, its the amount of damage that will typically happen. But a Supermoto, to start off with doesnt have $2000 worth of plastic on it, and it doesnt weigh 500 lbs(Kinetic energy) to thrust in even harder to the pavement.

So if you have to crash something, Id much rather crash a super moto, than a sport bike, less damage, although the DRZ does have magnesium engine covers that are easily crackable.
