    Well I didn't get the bike back working last night I stripped a bolt, maybe tonight I can work it out. I would like to check some places out, I have been in the area for the past 3 years though and NC my whole life so I have seen most of it.

    Good to see some new blood in the area. and more big bikes too.

    Maybe I will try to swing a leg over a bike a little sooner. so light riding should be possible.

    Oh, does anyone have a tire changer, or at least a bead breaker in the area?

    I do, but I'm not that close. if you need an impromptu bead breaker, use a trailer jack. just hook up the trailer to your truck, put the tire underneath, and lower the jack.

    One of many bikes I have chased with a title that wasn't as clean as I wanted it to be. NC registration rules suck!

    Always liked the Husaberg! Let me know when you get it ready and I will try to meetup to ride. Just got to get the bike back from the MTN house.

    The bike is fast but I am still slow. Keeping the Dakar and setting it up more for two up day trips.

    How does the Vstrom do offroad? Seems like it would not do very well.
