    Hey all. My 2011 'Berg is going strong. Here's some pics from my travels last year.

    Dang, I hope you heal up quick! Moto accident? If there is a good time to have broken bones, I'd guess it would be in the winter. But, that's when I like to hike so...I guess there just isn't a good time for broken bones.

    Sorry OLM, missed the multiple fractures. Yeah they are a pain in the arse when you are used to getting out there. Heal quick.

    That looks really good OLM. Can you post more pics of how it's mounted?

    Yeah, had a disagreement with the bike (my two-stroke). Doing fine now. Already dreaming and scheming for the next trip.

    Front: GT 216AA or GT723
    Rear: Started last year with a fresh GT333. Phenomenal dirt tire but burned it up pretty quick with higher miles. Switched to the GT722. Surprisingly good dirt grip for having tighter knobby pattern. Running lower pressure with Tubliss front and rear helps a lot too. Currently trying the Motoz Adventure Rally on the rear with GT723 on front. Don't love the Motoz as much.

    Can't find any pictures of when I last had the screen and fairing off. But it's your typical rally shape - made from HDPE. Drilled the head tube and bolted a block with a backing plate to the frame.

    I pulled the white Safari front tank off for the winter and mocked up some new side fairings. Kinda like the lithe and limber look. Fairings are made from coroplast (yard sale sign). Lucked out with some spray paint color.

    16.5 litres/4.36 gals of fuel as it sits. It retains its original slimness and carries 1 gal nice and low in the bash plate. I use a boat primer bulb to transfer fuel to the main tank. I have front and rear Safari tanks but havent had the need to use them yet.

    My plates for the screen mount are bolt on. No drilling or welding required. Very solid.

    EXC left, bent Berg right.

    216 fatty front with 333 is the best combo I’ve had. Going back after I burn off these shitty Michelin Enduros in a couple hundred more miles. Super disappointing.
