I have plates in my collarbone as well as a metal hip. Flying will be a joy for you now. If you PM me your address I will send you a bone stimulator that is supposed to induce bone growth. Who knows if it works.

New guy here... just checking into the clubhouse for the first time. I am glad to hear that you are healing up Finn - because quite honestly, I just went out and dropped $7k on a used 'berg after reading all 44 pages of your "Husaberg Adventure Traveler thread"... So at the risk of sounding like a creepy stalker, and you don't know me, I am super psyched that you are healing up and will be riding again soon, because I have been living vicariously through your photographic artwork and adventure stories.

Here she is -- a 2009 FE570 with 40hrs on the clock (just shy of 1000 miles), Scotts damper and Q4, other than that, she pretty much stock. Which is great for me because it has all the high-dollar add-on's, I'm just cutting down the seat and shaping it a little with some foam I got from the upholstery shop down the street, and adding a 70degree racing on-the-fly map switch (forgot to mention that this is my first dirt bike, coming off a V-strom, so I really wanted the option to bring the throttle response down while getting comfortable in the dirt). I am so in love with this little blue hussy

Just holler if you plan to get up this way. Pinevalley lives pretty close to me and HighFive knows what kind of trails I like to take people on.

You bet! By the time Finn heals up, the snow should be off the good trails up in the Pacific Northwest. I know a few other FE'berg'rs up here, and the local shop sold all the FE's they could get.

BTW Finn, nice tiltshift shot

howardbell, welcome to the party! glad you could join us and I could help you part with some hard earned money... I think you'll find most of us Berg' owners are very happy with our bikes.

It should be quite a step up in performance for you in the dirt, and since it has most everything needed already you're set to go!

I can say though, if you want to upgrade anything I'd recommend taking some off road training courses, if on the west coast Jimmy Lewis off road school is the obvious choice and I'm sure there's others out east that will help you start off riding dirt without developing bad habits. The berg is about a perfect bike but in the end it's up to the rider to make her sing.
Balance and control.

Have fun and just beware getting Lost on the Husa is very additive, I know I can't wait to get back in the saddle and thank you for the kinds words of support!






reshno, will do, thank you once again!




And Larry..... I'm speechless, you sure don't fuck around, that is one beautiful looking bike, I can only imagine how well it must ride. The best of luck to you in the race, please keep us posted! Do you happen to know anywhere we can follow the race online to see how you're doing?
I sure wish I could be there to watch.





yeah, fellows, maybe a little West Coast Husaberg get together is in order this year, I know I'd love to check out the trails you NorthWet folks have...




Surgery went well, with all the generous ADV support and advice I'm well on my way to recovery!


Cheers

Finn

Finn - I'll pm you my spot tracking info later today...it's going to be fun riding the rally berg down the peninsula. The bike is obviously world-class, the rider not so much but I'm setting the goal to keep the bike intact and finish the race!

Hi Larry, awesome rally bike build!

I am a major Dakar and Rally in general fan, so I'd like your tracking info too and if there is a website for it. Rock that Race!

Looking for what appears to be a nice Berg for just a few bucks?

Not mine:

Larry, I think this is the race you will be in right?

http://www.norra.com/mexican1000.php

Although you may be too busy getting ready for for tomorrow or sleeping to answer...


Also I think this is the ADV race link for the race if we want to try and see Larry blast by on that cool bike. Anders Green said he might have for race cams set up.

Yup....uh-huh....he ain't lying!

But it was sweet payback, when I suckered him down to Colorado last summer.

Dang, I might have to throw my TrialsBerg in the pickup & point it toward the PNW, if this ever comes together....

I got quoted $500 to lower my 390 2".
Reputable competent dealer.

Includes cutting the front springs and squatting down the existing rear.

Seems a bit steep but it's mostly labor.
Been putting it off but I think now it's a neccesity.
