Well i was under the impression that there were around 15 in oz. However i think its more like 10. Given the fact that hp2 owners are as elusive as the tasmanian devil i think a get together might be a lonely affair.

To my brothers in arms ( hp2 owners) who seek the road less travelled or have no bloody friends ....I want to meet you all at a designated time and place and have a drink. Like the extinct tas devil , its photo worthy to say the least.

How many hp2's

I know there was a resource for this information quite a while back. I am one of the lucky 324 owners in America. I have yet to regret buying this bike. Richard

I don't have numbers, but I think it's more than 324.

The MM had 109 imported, half of which were ABS models. Now that I think about it, maybe 324 ish might not be too far off. . .

Agree somewhat. Not really interested in the new WC boxer unless of course there is another HP2 coming.

I'm still not sold on the new KTM - looks a bit Vstrom-ish, prefer the old style but would likely buy the 990 ADV Anniversary.

The Border Run in August might be a good time for all to meet up??

hp2

i know the world is in a state of flux at the moment, however its always good to have something to look forward too. If there is 3000 hp2 enduro's in the world, i reckon we could organise a HP2 meet somewhere. If i can get my bro's here in oz sorted for a meet then hopefully before life escapes me i would very much like to meet other hp2 owners overseas somewhere.

How about it guys? who is up for a catch up at a central location where the currency lends itself to a cheap holiday and some nice laid back riding , good wine and beer and food...

Hi Mike
I've decided to keep mine...
There's another one now in wa....making four in total I think
It's ex-Qld
Wish I had the time to do another big trip.

I didn't really get the bike until I did a multi day ride and it all clicked into place after two days..it's a great all rounder !!

Cheers
Dave
