An hour and 15 min into it...

How'd it go?...I should rephrase that...that implies that it's over...How's it going?

Isellers is smoking crack again

Better to lay off the stuff...................

Powerman, where you been?

Looking forward to the next ride, breakfast and coffee at the new secret meeting place sounds great

Will we ever see th DTR again, will the hot sun quit blazing on us, will the rain come and moisten our trails soon?

Is there no end to the trails in the Sierra's above the san Joaquin Valley?

Will I be brave and get a bike worthy of those trails? Not if my wife has any thing to do with it.

Wicked Just do it!

Steve,

That's an Aprilia. Italian V-twin, 550 cc and it comes with blinkers.

Maybe you should stick to the Husky, seeing as how they are owned by BMW now. You're a Company man to the core.

Powerman why the hate

Don't you bleed orange? I don't know if I am man enough for that bad ass machine. Since I am a BMW factory rider, maybe the now BMW owned husky would work, but that twin sure is sexy. Wow, street legal too?

Dont you think a good ol' XR650R would work good for me?

I found a plated one..............what do you think?

Fogotten company man

Steve,

I said the Aprilia had blinkers, I didn't say it was CA street legal. The dealer says that he sells them as dirt bikes, but when they come back for service they all have plates on them. They love them.
I had an Aprilia Falco(streetbike), sold it to get the Adventure S, great bike, no problems.
As for my blood, it's still Honda Red, it's just that I have been forgotten by the family. They don't build what I need. I wanted a CR 450f in 1998, but they didn't make it until 2002 so I got a 1998 YZ400f, then when the dual sport laws changed I needed a new bike to replace my beloved-heavily modified XR 400. I needed a CR 450x, but that was 2004 and the X wasn't out yet, so I went KTM because they made what I needed when I needed it. Same for the Adventure S, if team Honda had an upgraded Africa Twin that they would bring to the U.S. I'd be riding that. I've been forsaken by my own family, maybe I'm just ahead of my time.
So yeah, Get the XR, it'll stomp those KLRs in the dirt, you just have to kick start it. If you get it, I'd love to test ride it.

There stuff isn't cheap, but it won't likely break on the trail. I've got one of their kickstands on my 525, way better than the stocker. You can even get a rack with a slot in it to carry a chainsaw for clearing trails.

Husa-still broke down? Montibank is!

After much deliberation I think I am going to keep the berg. I may buy a second bike once I have the berg paid off, to ride when the berg is broken. I was really lookin forward to the October 20th ride, it is my birthday, but I don't think I can afford the nessisary parts before then.

Heya Tom... Where'd you get your FCR? I plan on getting one as well. Is there a main screw adjustment for altitude changes? A hot start decompression deal? I saw one that has a TPS on it, but I don't know if I can get that working right, that is just one more thing to go wrong if you ask me. The banshee had a similar mechanical system that was junk. That was the first thing I took off. I called APF here in town, he had a 39mm Quicksilver off a KTM 620 that I was considering having machined to 41mm, but it is an older carb and from what I hear hard to find jets/needles. It is cheap, ($75 vs. $500+ for the FCR) but I think in this case cheap = trouble.

All in all I think I need around $1000 in parts/improvements and this does not count what ever detonated in the head when I was on highway 1 in July. I got a hold of Linaweaver again, he said December/January was the soonest he could take a look at it. Even then he wasn't sure he would have time to work on it he said. I asked for a price quote/hourly rate and he hasn't gotten back about it. He may charge in first born children if the guy is half as good as he claims.

Montibanks-
I have a local contact for you to try. The #'s in my work truck in the shop right now, but I can send it to you via private message next week. He's in Clovis and came highly recommended from an out-of-town Husaberg/Husqvarna/VOR/TM/ATK mechanic. Glad you're keeping the Berg; when you get things sorted out you'll be glad (I think)
