    RaceTech in Corona, CA did some awesome work on my bike make it ride like a charm in Baja desert. With a 28" inseam the HP2 wasn't always the easiest to ride, I had the suspension dropped an 1.375 and had them tweak and tune suspension (I have Olin Rears)

    I find my MM speedo over-reads by 10% at least ? Anyone else with a MM on a E have the same experience?

    I think it is mandatory by the law.
    Speedo must show a little more speed.

    Imagine who will be responsible in case of accident due to too high real speed but speedo showing less...

    They choose a setting which shows more than real speed.

    Checked mine last week when swapping wheels, all 5 disk brake bolt holes were cracked. Just picked up the new steel type flange from the dealer.

    With much trepidation & anxiety, I closely examined the rear hub bolt flanges of my HP2E and found....no cracks, nothing, nada....otoh, I only have @ 7K miles on the bike & it's more backroad blaster than dirtbike (there's 450 enduro's for that) with minimal abuse...so knock on wood as this wasn't something I wanted to replace.

    ? ? ?

    Just asking a legitimate question since this looks like a thread where owners actually ride their HP2s.

    Inmates are urged to view ' what a deal a HP2 for $515' by Moosemeat . Don't allow this person to start his vendetta and therefore spoil this fine thread!

    gotta love the versatility of this bike. I decided to make her even more versatile with the addition of woody's wheels 19 / 17. they really improve the on road handling as does the Ohlins and the andreani fork cartridges.

    Give us a bit more info re the Andreani fork cartridges. I know Ohlins also make for the HP2.

    andreani is an OEM supplier to ohlins and also does a lot with WSBK. check out fast bike industries in NC for details.

    I believe the bike is at its best on rough adventure trips where the blacktop stops and the dirt road becomes a mess . I could never have hoped to take my gs adv or my 1150 gs on the roads ive taken the hp2. And on the other side of the coin, its a lot easier to get out of trouble on it. Its a darn side easier to pop the front wheel on obsticals and generally move about at slow speed. My only grip is the throttle sensitivity. Its easily the best outback bike I have ever ridden. Sit on 140 all day if u want on the dirt (if conditions allow) and mix it with your mates on smaller enduro bikes. You can ride a 1000k through dusty rough conditions and get up and do it all again and the bike loves it. Like the other post said, I just look at the bike and it makes me happy and feel free to go at a moments notice.
