A simple design ( relative I know to modern BMW' bike) no ABS, normal forks ... IMHO the fact that it can be raced just speaks to the flexibility of the design .
I have to agree with you.

I guess they're not selling too well over at Bob's hence the $3000+ off MSRP.

I'm enjoying the show.

Fuck! This pic is going to cost me a shit load of money. How about we just trade and you can start over. Mine comes free of deer guts and I don't mind a little left over Venison here and there.

Very Nice!

Do you have one of those fighter pilot kill badges? You should get a deer decal with one of those red lines across it and wear it with honor.

F-ing awsome idea! Know where I could get one? Something like:

HP2-1
Deer-0

A large hunter outlet might have that kind of humerous sticker for the back windows of pickup trucks 4x4's I will start googling. Bet one of the computer savy guys here could make a comical deer with a circle and a red line across it.

I was thinking "Deerslayer"

I hope you got through it unharmed.

Insurance?

That deer must have been well insured!

Nice set up Runeo - I see you have the pillion pegs on your HP2... how has your pillion found being on the back of the HP2? I'm lucky enough to have a GF who wants to ride on the back of my Dakar... if I swap to an HP2 I wonder if she will stop wanting to ride on the back

Sorry for the hijack

I was on crutches for a while after the deer slayer incident...that fucker bled out on the road, so I came out better than him! Overall, I was pretty lucky. I'll probably be wearing knee braces from now on while riding offroad though.

Insurance paid off a little bit of my bike loan, that helped pay medical bills and got me a few neat bits for the bike...I still haven't put on my relaced dirt wheels from Woodie's yet though.

I did all the work myself except painting the frame and recovering the seat- BTW-Renazco Racing did an excellent job!

Here's the frame to my $20K motorcycle in the back of my $300.00 car...



I shudder to think what it would cost to pay a shop to do a complete tear-down just to paint the frame...it took me something like 4 months of evenings and weekends! Of course I was in an arm sling for a month of that due to shoulder surgery. Total PITA, but at least I can ride now (very gently).
