How did you actually get on a Berg? Crane, trampoline, fork lift?
This one only has 22 hours on it because the last bloke to have his mid life crisis couldn't cope with the height.

Anyway, it's an addition and seems happy at plod-speed too, it does tighter and slower figure of 8 turns than the X-Barge does. And it's such a beautiful object too, the pecking order is now 1. bike 2. dog 3. wife* . Probably best not to mention that though









*just a joke for our female readers

Nice bike Gazz, good linear power delivery, no need for a throttle cam on mine.

Cheeky )(*&er !!--Just like I get on the 640 or the CRF--put it on the sidestand first--its no taller than any EXCF etc Plod it might--but open the throttle with a few revs on and you will be "exercised" I'm sure--its an enduro bike after all!

Husaberg have now ditched the "centralised" motor and have virtually become a blue KTM--you have the last of the proper ones.


Personally I'm looking at the new HONDA CRF 250F with the road based motor. I test road one recently and its a very good all rounder--but doesn't have the punch of my undersquare CRF230F--I really need to try the 230 again as it has a new front fork set up--it was never a power thing--just inadequate suspension.

Ride report awaited!!

Nice bike Gazz, it'll be tough to keep up with you on this bike through the forests (will you bring it to France next year?), you'll have more time to backtrack when you take a wrong turn!

I never take a wrong turn, that Lennie's job

I will still be on the 650 next year, if I ride the Berg for a whole week it would need a service half way through (in theory ..)
