I do, but I'm not that close. if you need an impromptu bead breaker, use a trailer jack. just hook up the trailer to your truck, put the tire underneath, and lower the jack.

One of many bikes I have chased with a title that wasn't as clean as I wanted it to be. NC registration rules suck!

Well I bought a BERG. 2009 FE450 with less than 25 hours. Clear Title.

I need to service it this week and reinstall the Dualsport bits that the owner had removed. This thing screams.

Always liked the Husaberg! Let me know when you get it ready and I will try to meetup to ride. Just got to get the bike back from the MTN house.

Very nice Matt, congratulations! I'll never be able to keep up with you now...

Did you keep the Dakar?

The bike is fast but I am still slow. Keeping the Dakar and setting it up more for two up day trips.

How does the Vstrom do offroad? Seems like it would not do very well.

Thanks. I have seen the bikes being used as "Adventure Bikes" but was not real sure how they would do in the dirt.

From what I have seen they do good on gravel roads but not so good when the sand or mud starts to get deep. But I have seen Sam ride and I doubt that bike would slow him down anywhere that we usually ride locally. I still probably can't catch him on the Dakar.

I know I am free Saturday until mid afternoon.

I need to shake down the berg this weekend. Anyone up for a mostly dirt ride.

I could also be talked into some riding on the BMW that is more street oriented.
