That's the way we welcome n00bs here at ADV, making fun of them. Well, also name calling, but thats only in JM.

Husaberg is the last brand I can think of and my last guess.

Ding Ding- a winner . I thought that would be a surprise to everybody. I havent seen the HUSABERG in any sig line. Cant wait to go thru it. The history and the mistique seduced me. You hit the nail on the head when you said I left out reliability in my criteria. Only time will tell. Even though it will surley go 100 mph, I only expect to do that for just a second.(or two). Cheap-only -1.5K- I just cant see myself lowsiding on a BMW or KTM and spending $300.00 on the tuperware. Cagiva 549 sold me on a KTM RFS ,and this is the bike that KTM copied it from . And there are not many for sale -much less for my price! Not titled or licensed-soo that is my first challenge. Momma took a picture of my first ride and left me out of the frame 4 out of 5 times. Doesnt speak panning I guess.

I only know of Husaberg from KTMInduro's epic ride report. He rode his through Borneo. A 2010. It must have been pretty reliable to survive that trip.

I understand during this time of the year, they don't actually light a fire in the pit. Just the sun shining down on the black metal creates enough heat to cook everything.

Nope. Nothing like that guy's bike. But a stock Street Glide CVO (110 cu) can pull the front tire off as my friend once demonstrated. Impressive for a bike of that size and weight.

The better H-D drivers ain't running anything near stock for that reason. Add about $6-8k to any non-CVO bike to get top performance and about $1-3k for a CVO. Rough estimates.

BTW, would it be too much to ask for a cold front mid next week?
I guess you were in last week and if so hope you made a ride.
If not or if'en you git back here.....
I'd suggest a Texas History Trip..... It will take you through a couple of regions here and while not the best of "Riding" I'm sure you'd find it enjoyable.... a Harley would make a nice bike for a leisurly ride looking at Historical sites.
Ideally you could go to the Alamo and then to see the San Jacinto Monument. However that would be best done with an avernight trip

Here is a link that has a map to follow and other good resources.

For those that went on Saturday, DAMN it WAS HOT WHEN I GOT HOME!
I have Pics and ratings posted on Schoepfs BBQ. Good meeting you Mudclod, look forward to riding sometime.

I got some of the bugs ironed out of the RTB website. For those that have not checked it out, here is the link:
http://rollthebonesrally.com/

I plan to keep adding to it. Contact page works and that is how I am gonna handle internet registration.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Hey Mudclod, it was good meeting you too.

Your GoPro Wide camera now supports up to 8 GB cards if you update the firmware. The instructions and the link to the firmware can be found here.

Once again, It was great meeting you and looking forward to riding with you at the roll the bones rally if not sooner.
