I did indeed enjoy the wagon road! And many of the trails and roads in that area. I was shocked how many trails where up there! The trailer handled very well. The silt was so deep in spots I couldn't see the trails, it was like riding through water almost... Only crashed once, deep silt and an off camber corner a little too fast..... slid out, nothing bad. I even pulled the trailer through a bunch of the OHV trails they have there next to Big Lake, it did great. I rode from the East end of the senic bypass route to Big Lake and out onto Hwy126 at Hoodoo, all on dirt trails and wagon roads. I will do more exploring up there, it was really fun!

I'm very unhappy with my trailer. It just sets in the garage looking so Lonely. I walked by it the other day and I heard it whisper that it wanted to run away from home. My 08 KLR-650 is setting on the lift on a Battery Tender. My 2010 GSA needs a Valve Adjust and I'm sure Oil Changes are needed all around. Nothing has turned a wheel since late September. Yes, I'm an IBA Member and not a wheel has turned since Late September. With the Economy as it is, I've not been able to walk away from all of the available overtime at work. I sure do miss ridding. This Summer is going to be great!!!!!!!!!!!

I figure I may as well post a picture of my set-up. I am still working on a wireless turn signal set-up which should be done soon. If I have a trail clearing expedition this spring I can carry a chainsaw where the rifle case is mounted which ultizes the same Kolpin mounting bracket.

I experienced a flat tire on the first outing, and have since installed a motorcross front tire and a 4mm thick tube. The wheel bearings were the next items to go. Not too shabby given they have seen over 10,000K now. Getting the bearings out was a chore, and I actually ended up destroying the original axles with the hydraulic press, so I machined a new set.

I bashed holes right through the original Action Packer in short order and have since replaced it with a pelican case. Its hard to see, but I have a bash bar protecting the leading edge of the Pelican case from boulders etc.

The Husaberg pulled this around for a good part of hunting season as my daily driver is a Jetta. I did manage to find 2 deer!

bee-rad, your set up looks great! Great to see. Glad to see it's getting so much use!

What model pelican case is that?

Likewise, I think that's a really nice setup, bee-rad. If you don't mind the tangent, did you haul the deer out on the bike and/or moto mule?

Its a 1620 Pelican Case. It just fits. I removed the plastic luggage handle and wheel contraption and then welded up a mounting plate with integrated bash bar. The only gripe is the rear most latch hits the shock tower & its tricky to get your fingers in between the steel plates to snap it open, however I wanted the case as low as possible so the rifle would clear.

I didn't because I harvested 2 deer as a double header with 45 minutes of daylight left. I raced back to the campsite on the Berg and asked for some help from the neighbors using my car motorcycle trailer and their 4x4. I didn't hit the hay until 3am that evening by the time I had both deer processed, & it would have been hours more if I tried to haul them out with the moto-mule. Perhaps next year I may find the circumstances right where I can use the moto mule to haul a deer out. I have too say, I did many days of pure riding (while keenly watching the forest for animals) and then had days where I purely walked around in the bush hunting. I had more run-ins with wildlife while on the motorcycle then on foot, even with all of the racket a dirtbike makes.

Some of you may recognize the trailer from its prior life before I got my hands on it...
