Do you have any advice for those of us that might find ourselves riding the Husa for long periods of time droning along on roads, tarmac or gravel? For light duty riding like on gravel roads or easy trails what would you say would be a safe milage between oil changes?

Is that skid plate/ tool box you have there anything us mere mortals can purchase anywhere?
I would love to have a setup like that or the one the Lukas has on his Berg to carry my tools.


Cheers

Lost, here is the windscreen I use:


Got it from ProCycle. Only sold with 7/8" brackets, but I didn't use them anyways... I made my own GPS protector and just mounted the windscreen to it instead of the bars. I really like it, it's small enough to not catch much side wind and large enough to keep most of the wind off of my chest.

APBlack, I really like my 17/19 wheelset for adventure riding. The wide rims and tires really give you a lot of confidence at speed on the pavement. I went for a 300 mile ride last weekend, it was a mix of pavement, gravel, and two track. When I did this ride on my dirt wheelset earlier this year, I was spent! The adventure wheels allow you to relax much more, they are so smooth with the heavier tires and cush drive hub. They really change the bike!

I am biased obviously, but I love my trailer! I'm building myself a new one, I'm still running the original prototype that I built. The new one has a black wheel, only the shock will be red.... should look a little better. It will also have a "backbone" to hang bags off of. The big tub I currently use is great for commuting, but it's a little big for day trips and it is not water proof. The new trailer will have Pelican cases hanging on each side or just one and roto-pax gas cans on the other side. I'll post some pictures up when I have it done.

Mike

Thanks!

I am a video professional, though I have more to do with the playback of live video at concerts or events more than editing or production.
Media servers, large LED walls, projection, cameraman, etc.
Honestly I spent very little time putting this together in iMovie on my Mac, it's just a template I filled in.
It takes a lot of effort to do any real moto-video editing, as why I usually just focus on photography as my hobby, but thought I'd have a little fun making this video..... more so poking fun at my solo trail adventures and my quest for GLORY than anything!
I figured Barshoe would get a kick out of my 'Berg boiling over.



No 2up on the berg, I used to ride lots of dirt 2up on my 8GS and did some pretty big climbs ( for us), it amazed me how we could tractor up big hills, excellent traction with that much weight on the back tire combined with low gearing and lots of power made for good fun.
We shall miss that kind of 2up fun, but I don't miss picking up a 480 pound bike.

Nowadays we use her bike for 2up ADV riding when needed.





Thanks for the info on your windscreen, looks like it would do the trick to help protect me in the winter.

Cheers!

Finn
