New to the forum/ need help!

Hey all,

My name is Wade and Iím new to the west coast. I just moved to Reno, NV from Central Illinois. I grew up racing motocross my whole life and have always wanted to try supermoto. Anyway, Iím 31 now and my moto days are mostly behind me, itís time for something new. Iíd really like to start riding/racing supermoto. Can anyone give me the info on things like where tracks are? How my motocross bike should be set up? What I should be wearing? Etc. straight up noob here. My moto back ground was strong intermediate B class and I currently have a 2018 KTM 250SXF.

The adventure is in the rider, not the bike.

My dad used to own a Buell, until one day when he accidentally left his garage open overnight. Now he owns three.
