Great photos...and I'm happy I'm not the only fool who thinks the HP2 is a woods bike for tight single track!


( a few weeks ago , I left her overnight on the side of the mountain, because the woods were TOO tight )

Louis, I'm too lazy to join Vimeo right now, so I'll just say it here, the video f**king rocks. Good job.

Carry on!

it is a great photo, but in all honesty, at least in the southeast us, this is wide open woods, not tight single track.

a few weeks ago, son and i rode together on some of the trails he usually races in cross country. i rode an XR200. if i had taken the HP2e in there, it would have become a permanent part of the forest.

Just don't clip any tree's....



Especially if you have crappy ass self-folding crashbars on your bike. They did a number on the valve cover and frame. I am _certain_ that without the bars on I'd have no damage save for perhaps a scratch or two. Those things buckled and did more damage to the bike then the tree would have.

And some pics from before I clipped the tree!







I'm not replacing the crashbars. They destroyed one fin on the valve cover, broker a piece of my transmission and dented the frame of the bike. This is the third bad experience I've had with crashbars on two different bikes. Good valve cover protectors and that's it for me from now on!

Wow. That turned out sharp, gkaan. Did you scuff and shoot that tank black? Most of 'em I've seen look sort of grayish black and not nearly as good.

Those look like the Hepco & Becker crash bars. It's odd that they'd pop apart like that. Perhaps the grub screw holding the two sections of tubing together rattled out prior to the crash? I'd be inclined to red loctite those suckers if I had those bars on my bike.

You're probably right about that although I still think that a bolt which goes through both pieces would be better than a grub screw. I can't imagine the grub screw would have held up much better even if it had red loctite on it.
