I'm not sure .....but I think I see a spot under the KLR....No, my mistake....must have been a fly just passing through! Nice Shop!!!

For the nasty stuff 1 cylinder is all you need.

My Husaberg FE570



I was supposed to sell my Super Enduro when I bought my Husaberg.
But I really could not separate from this wonderfull bike. It is just too much fun.



But driving the two bikes above is always a big risk. A risk for getting dirty as I cannot keep myself away from mud and dirt roads. So I needed something which is no fun at all driving offroad.
Heavy as hell, bad suspension, no breaking power but the sound of 6 cylinders makes me smile all the times.
My Honda CBX 1000 Z

LOVE THIS THREAD!!! Yes the Maico 490 Mega 2 is a peach. I had a 450 M1 and my buddy had a 490. They are truly beastly motors putting out as much HP as bikes today. My 450 had the crank balanced and it was actually a bit better so we put in the 490 frame.

The key with these B*&## ards was understanding the starting drill and having to stand on the left side sucked monkey balls. The kickstarter pawls would round off and if the bike backfired, it would kill the coil (at least on mine). However they hold a dear place in my heart.

Wouldnt mind owning one now. Course I wouldnt mind one of everything!!!!

Laugh Not any more!

Does it suck, that is...

2011 690 Enduro R followed me home.




Got a fantastic deal - 1750 km, still under warranty - couple of scratches from one BC trail ride. Only damage - bent rear brake lever. I'll get a nice billet replacement.
So far, so good. First back roads ride this Sunday.

What better to keep a KTM company than another KTM...you decide which one is the stable mate though technically the EXC came first. The only sucking here is in fuel and air!

...and i second the immediately above thought wow...so clean!

New ADV rider!

She may only be a humble Honda Storm, but she certainly does not suck. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my son George to the ADV Rider fold. He is 18 this week and now eligible for his Chilean driving licence

I cant wait to get out on the road with him. Looks like the 990 will be taking a well earned rest for a wee while.

Hopefully we can graduate him onto something a bit bigger in time for the Ushuaia trip next January.

Happy days
