    at first i was highly indignant… but ya know, in the scheme of things, why not? i even kinda like the paint!
    i would like to see a pair of aluminium side cases.

  • Kemal Kautsar

    damn, that’s like doing Downhill on a crosscountry mountain bikes with 80mm fork! gnarly

  • Conrad

    Ridonkulous.

  • Chris McAlevy

    What’s the netting on the tail in the last couple of pictures?

    • http://RideApart.com/ Wes Siler

      Just camo netting for the photos.

  • grb

    “why not just have some fun and be silly?” thats what it is, silly. and its fun because its not my bike and Im not the one riding it through a whole trip. its entertaining

  • thepierced

    Ok, that was the coolest parking job I’ve ever seen. And on the Panigale nonetheless! Maybe that’s a real thing with other dirt bikes, but I just think that was cool.

  • Benjamin Reynolds

    I actually really like the paint job, I’v been thinking about painting my bike that color for almost a year now. It’s nice to actually see it done.

  • Brian

    put an upright top triple/handlebar kit from like Speigler/LSL on it and rock it out!!!

  • roma258

    Moto Corsa is alright by me. These dudes really seem to be enjoying life, more power to them!

  • Rameses the 2nd

    I am not a big fan of sports bike, but man, Panigale is a beautiful bike.

  • charlie

    Kinda reminds me of the motorcycles in the “Megaforce” movie

  • modus

    This seems absurd unless, of course, you’ve seen this modified Monster from a fella named Dock Rock here in NYC:

    The key difference being that the Monster is actually rideable through fire cuts and single tracks, whereas the Panigale probably can’t get through anything. Not a bad paint job, though.

    • Brian

      reminds me of the Terra Mostro 695 kit bikes….

    • TP

      I reeeaaaally like that Monster

    • Curtis Caulfield

      Did you READ the article?

  • grindz145

    Knobbies make anything better.

    • Dustin Kimble

      Yes Grindz, yes they do….

  • Reid

    This is incredibly cool. My hat’s off to these fine gentlemen.

  • MichaelEhrgott

    I love it when people defy expectations and take their “unsuitable” bikes off-road. There is nothing that pisses me off more than people who refuse to ride their bikes on a plain old dirt road. It’s not hot lava people.

    • Ryan Chambers

      Right? Knobbies make it easier, but it is surprising what you can get away with on street tires along with a bit of confidence. I can personally attest to conquering dirt, gravel, light mud, and just general fire road conditions on an Sv650. Just gotta be keenly aware of your ground clearance.

  • Guilherme Bernard de Paula

    Fuck. It looks awesome !

  • Heather McCoy

    Now, having seen my ol’ man boldly go where no man has gone before on a 999 and a 748 (dirt, rocks, rivers, mud…it’s ugly), I realize these bikes are capable of far more than most riders have the skill to challenge. Since he grew up in the Portland-area, too (MotoCorsa, Icon Motosports), it’s clear to me they grow ‘em crazy up there. Must be in the water.

  • Ryan Chelberg

    I like it… I certainly wouldn’t do it to my panigale if I had one… But hey what’s the point of owning your own motorcycle if you can’t do what you want with it

  • http://www.waynestokes.com/ Wayne Stokes

    1,200 in 3 days through the rain, mud, gravel, grass and street – is that right?

  • Rowtag

    just when I thought the panigale couldn’t look cooler

  • perlhaqr

    Someone here at the university I work for has an SV with knobbies on it. It’s pretty sweet looking.

  • stephen

    they should really do this for a hypermotard! that would be amazing

  • PDXGSXR

    This is my local shop – well one of them anyway. I’ve met Arun and much of the crew and they’ve got a great thing going. They put on a very well run track day as well – first time I dragged a knee was at one of their events. They’re far more marketing savvy than your average motorcycle related business and thus things like this and the Manigale calendar – for all the laughs and hate – has given them a much bigger profile than your typical motorcycle dealership could ever hope for.

    We’ve also got EDR around here which is cranking out some seriously respectable SBK, AMA, club level etc bikes. Crazy power and they’re getting a lot of interest from out of state and even overseas.

  • Randy S

    Love it. Sounds like a great shop.

  • max

    There’s no 1920×1080 for any of the wallpapers? :(

  • devillock

    Silly. That’s like equipping a Lamborghini to go off road with. Enjoy your stupid off road Lamo, good job now it sucks at road too. I’ll take a Toyota Land Cruiser, n’ c ya later….

    • Dustin Kimble

      Yea it’s called a Lamborghini Parcour. Pretty much the same just in car form. I like the Lambo way better though. It’s AWD.

      • devillock

        lol, I had no idea the Lambo idea already existed. No hope for humanity. People with excessive amounts of money really have nothing better to do. I’d still take the land cruiser.

        • Dustin Kimble

          If you had the money to spare you would still take the land cruiser? Yea I can think of several ways to spend money offroading but land cruiser is below jeep (with land rover being on top) on my list of offroadies.

          • devillock

            If I had the money I’d spend it on neither. I’d waste it on more team orange bikes and track days. Beer and hookers too of course.

  • Mugget

    Haha cool stuff.

    I’d be lying if I said that I don’t want to hop on that bike and take off full throttle rear spinning down a dirt road.

    But then again it sounds like I’ve taken my Gixxer with road tyres down pretty much the same type of roads they went on. Rutted, potholed, rocky fire trail – in the rain. Killed my brake pads and sent the fork seals to the big garage in the sky. But it’s an interesting experience. Haha. And aren’t new, different & challenging experiences what it’s all about?

  • Dustin

    @ScottPargett, remind you of an adventure we did into Sequoia? Speed Triple and VTR1000 off road. Twisties + Dirt = Amazing Weekend

  • luxlamf

    What a great article!! Love it!!

  • Harold Olaf Cecil

    Thanks for riding Giant Loop

  • Facebook User

    Nice one, my RC8 is getting the same treatment very soon. Not the paint job though, just the tyres and jacking up the suspension.

    I’ve just dropped an image and a link back to here on my Tumblr race blog. Hope you don’t mind.

  • http://metabomber.com/ Jesse

    I approve of (other people) doing this with ~$25k supersport bikes.

  • Michael Hayes

    Needs crash bars. I’d imagine it’d be pretty easy to drop that thing and ruin the nice matte paint.

  • Al Woods

    Saw some pretty scalding opinions of the Terracorsa on the autoblog site. Baffles me how some can’t see how cool and fun this project turned out. The fact that it’s remotely functional is icing on the cake.

    This is so refreshing compared to usual scrambler/cafe racer/street fighter projects.

    Bravo MotoCorsa! Put a bigger tank on it and sell that beast! I’ll be in line. You have my number already. :)

      It’s best not to read comments elsewhere.

  • STRfreak

    Well, whats the point of having a motorcycle dealership if you don’t do fun crazy things like this once in a while
