S C O R E !! My new 2012 ADV loaded fe570
 
It was a risk that fully paid off :) I live in NZ and saw the best example I've ever seen of a 570fe berg in TASMANIA (australia). It's another country and across 1500nm of water, but I went for it! The price was very right at just over 7000AUD and included a new safari tank, force rad guards and belly pan, heated grips, a custom Seat Concepts seat, tail tidy, barkbusters, a few engine mods, new tyres, balanced wheels, Scott steering stabiliser, barretts slip on exhaust, tool kit, all original parts, 12v plug, keyed ignition, custom graphics, etc. I managed to get some relatively inexpensive flights over the high season and flew to Tasmania. Pick up was a breeze and the bike was perfect with only 2000kms, 35hrs. Deal done, and then I hooked up with the ADV riders there who had a 3day ride to the best off-road there in NE Tassie. Did some additional off-road and touring, and then ferried to Melbourne. Bike is now making its way on a container to me in NZ :) Can't wait to introduce her to her new home!

Very nicely set up! Did the 2012 570's come with blue wheels? I have a 2011 and the wheels are silver. (I live in the USA)

Gorgeous bike but how about some photos of Tasmania? Show the world what they're missing!

p.s. I also spy Stegz pegz.

Oh my goodness that bike is a real looker, more pics PLEASE! Do the shrouds on the tank have perforations in them? Well done :cool:

more pics and info
 
Sorry all, just saw these appreciations of what is really a top Berg!

So the only thing I'm dealing with is a small oil leak (i think from the rubber grommet where the stator wires go into the stator casing). Bike just arrived in NZ from Australia, and as soon as I get my hands on her I'll try to pull the case and use high-temp sealant to seal up the leak. New gasket on order just in case. Anyone know where in the world I can get a complete gasket set for spares? Athena do sets but haven't seen a complete one. Thanks all!

berglsmerg recommended Cometic to me! - I got a really nice deal on a complete top end seals and MSL gasket kit on Ebay. (Dealer was "lionparts powersports").
