    I have the 450 currently in dirt mode. I really like this bike as a trail bike. It's a mountain of fun. I have fitted the map switch which I had forgotten to fit when it went in for the dyno and for the day at MVTC. Nevertheless I still don't think it would run with Dallas's YZ450. His felt stronger. That's a very competitive bike. Well done Dallas. Nevertheless the 450 is up there which is what I was aiming for. Just gotta get the geometry sorted on the bent Berg. I think I may have taken on something a little out over of the ordinary. All good fun.

    Finally got around to fitting the motard wheels I got some time ago to the Berger. Or should I say not fitting.
    Spacers and front axle are nothing like a fit. Will be able to make them work, the rear sprocket to disc measurement appears to be a match along with the rear axle, so spacers only required there. The front however will require an axle off something other than my berg and some spacer/sleeves fabricated.
    There is someone I know that may get a call as my lathe and I parted ways sometime ago.

    If I can learn to stay on I think I should be good to go. Also if you whip my butt in the times I may reconsider also.:hmmmmm
