You guys are killing me with all the Berg stuff. I'd have one if a dealer was close. I went with the Husky for enduro and I'm real happy, but there is sumpin bout the Husaberg that gets my juices going.

'Hope they'll be selling the oil cooler mounted below the front of the fairing too.

That is a modified KTM oilcooler, apparently expensive...

You should be able to order it at any KTM dealer, part number 7623800000, about $550 without VAT.

But I understand that Thomas will sell it in a kit with the necessary adapter for the engine that bolts in place of the oil filter (or at least the cover).

3rd Berg touches down

Beta over there in the USA has taken delivery of his Berg ... minisculey different to the European Bergs ... the US ones have slightly different graphics, a black frame and silver rims.

We promised Beta a nice set of Blue Anodised wheels will be coming his way from Europe ...

3rd Berg lifts off

Beta didnt waste any time playing around with the bike. He wanted to check if our adventure bike winches from Warn really work ...

I guess they do ...

'Anxious to see your mounting point for the winch. Will it be plate mounted, as sold by Warn,



or Tube mounted, as supplied by The Tube Tube.com,



or perhaps some other method...

I don't think we are going to hard mount the winches on the bikes, the Husaberg has basically no room for a rack/plate. For transporting we will put them in our Giant Loop Coyote bags, and for actual winching they will be placed in line, tied to the front of the bike with a haul strap mounted on the forks/triples.

Thomas? And do you know when it'll be available? I'm considering a 570 but there's no way it'll do the trip I'm planning (India/Pakistan) without a serious increase in oil capacity. I'm also interested in the sub frame construction re carrying capacity if you have any comments on that. In an ideal world I'd wait a year but for timing reasons I can't afford to hang around with the purchase, and I don't want to do the trip on a large bike or a carb'd bike.

Another area of interest is the fuel pump and set up and whether the guys at the factory have installed in-line filters or are leaving that stuff to you.
