All of Lost's purty camping pix reminded me I haven't posted an actual Berg camping pic here, so I better get on that, from this year:



2 Bergs at 10,000ft, full camping gear on each.

Not only that, but it transforms otherwise mediocre night time shots to perfectly staged beach scenes with your very own FE570 posed (regardless of whether you were anywhere near a beach when the photo was taken). The starry night shots will be similarly awesome. All this from a 2 megapixel Nokia phone too.

Hey,
Not this weekend! I've got to get the roadworthy and then get it registered..

It's only been raced on a permit since new before the Safari.

Hopefully next week, but maybe just a little poke around a mate's farm.

Nice shots of the Berg in action Finn and Clif!

Going to convert mine back from supermoto to offroad and then install some navigation gear for the Tuareg Rally in Tunesia in March.

You need to do some research. OEM HID systems on cars and motorcycle are designed properly and approved by DOT/TÜV/etc for specific vehicles, conversion kits are not.

Whether you are likely to get caught and fined is a different matter, but they are NOT street legal.

This is a pic of my 450 with my camping set up on a trip from Pa to WV. I'm ordering 2 medium rollie bags, the small ones are just too small IMO.

There is certainly a requirement for DOT lighting, but the codes that I am quite familiar with do not specify any wattage limitation other than the 65 watts and then they just limit the number of forward facing white lights. Anything over 65 watts does not have to be covered, and the aftermarket manufactures these lights as fog lamps, driving lamps, etc. There is nothing illegal about them. Also there is a California court ruling in regard to lighting in the spectrum of white and the spectrum including white light within the blue spectrum such as the 6000k lights. Keep on reading that vehicle code.

Your info is dated from 2002 and 2003. Are you serious? In the past nine years a lot has changed, the law updates every year to reflect those changes. Find something current ok.

This link should take you to a picture of the Hussy loaded and heading into the Santa Rosa Mountains in Nevada this October. We were 250 out on the first day at this point, unfortunately, the KTM lost its tranny about forty miles further down the trail.

Always great to see a 70degree Berg all dressed up for camping.
Once again we see these FE Bergs are built solid, reliable engine, great dual-sporters.

Many countries have very different rules re HID lighting, so there is not one single definitive answer on the fitment or use of them. If you are only riding off road or in the middle of BFI then the retrofit HID probably isn't a worry to anything but some local wildlife.
