    A somewhat reliable source, but in reality, I'm just stirring the pot. ;~) We'll just have to wait and see.

    Making a Husaberg street legal?

    Just where do you plan on running this (or any) bike at these throttle settings? You'd be dead in less than a minute trail riding. The Berg is an awesome machine. Best bike I have ever owned actually. Not sure if it would be the best choice for someone who is "new" to offroading especially if you just took a training course. Are you willing to do weekly maintenance? Do you mind changing your oil after every hard ride? Can you adjust/check your valves? I would suggest if you were considering a KLR then why don't you get a DRZ? Sounds like the machine for you.

    Few pics my Husaberg FE 550

    Fantastic bikes and your's looks great. Had mine for 2 years and only had to kick it less than 5 times. Left foot kick is no big deal.

  10. The most fun I have had on 2 wheels, Lots of more pix here, http://www.nsdsc.ca/Gallery.aspx?whichgallery=2007-02-25+Black+River+again&back=/Gallery.aspx
  11. For me it depends on the tire and how warm/cold the tire is. A warm trackmaster takes me about 12 mins without rushing but a cold ice tire can take more than an hour and there is a lot of blood. On average it's about 20 mins and 1 beer.
  12. If anyone would like to read our ride reports, please feel free to check out our gallery here, http://www.nsdsc.ca/Gallery.aspx It'll pass the time at work...

    Spain? I believe Huskys are manufactured in Italy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Husqvarna_Motorcycles Gasgas are made in Spain.

    Jimmy Lewis Rigged Again

    Here's my .02c (at par) I subscribe and will keep subscribing for quite a while. I think the magazine is great and it's getting better every issue. To make it even better I would like to see more dual sport bikes/tests. Around here, Nova Scotia, it's one of the largest growing segments in motorcycle sales. I'm sure it's a similar case throughout NA. I would also like to see reader contributed articles such as ride reports that you see here and on ADVRider. Read this to see what I mean, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=269251 "Angola, it's not like they said." Tell me you wouldn't like to see something like this in full colour print. Maybe have it continue over 2-3 issues. It has to be hard for magazines to keep coming up with content that you want to pay for when there is plenty available for free on these interwebs. Jimmy, keep up the great work and don't let the bastards get you down. Now, how about that Berg of yours?

    Lets see those EXOTICS!!

    Thanks for the kind comments. ahoolsema, the Terraflex is a great tire. It finds traction where other tires give up. It digs in so good, it was too much tire for the mighty Berg. I found I was riding the clutch more than I should. It's also a very heavy tire but I think you would like it on the 550. Just be careful on the street as it's very slippy.
