    More than welcome guys! Nice words on this thread. The HP2 has been handling fantastic here in Baja; truly in its element ripping up dirt and eating up the miles.

    I'm another HP2 dreamer, but I prefer the light weight of the xchallenge (im now on my 2nd one). Both are great for anything, just more rare and power in the HP2, and more lightweight and less cost in the X. My dream bike is now mine, which is my cover pic, the 2012 Husaberg FE570 adventurized, but I was after a trail demon that I could tour with in NZ.

    Now that you have done all the riding and the trip south (im going to read that now!), how do you think overall about your HP2 for RTW and ADV touring? Would you do it again? Also, are you willing to say how much such a well farkled HP2 set you back when you bought it?

    All the best from Aotearoa!

    What ever happened to this bike? I know that it was seized in Costa Rica. Was that situation ever resolved?
