Then in 2005 the dreaded NERC act wiped out at a stroke most of the trails we used to be able to ride them on so we wouldn't spoil the enjoyment which apparently only ramblers and horse riders are allowed to take from being in the countryside.

Swings and roundabouts I guess. Though now I come to think of it, it is odd that our much-loved Labour government didn't get around to introducing type approval for vehicles - would have fitted right in with all the other "nanny state" nonsense like fitting scaffolding to gravestones just in case they might fall over and land on someone's foot.

We need a 125 / 150cc and 200cc version, plus a big 450 or 500cc 2-smoke - HB needs to provide an option for the entry level younger crowd, plus be leading the market back into the Big bore 2-strokes.

The MSRP needs to come down a bit - say by 20% - and sales will rocket off the charts.

All the component suppliers are under big pressure, with falling input costs, so this should be achieveable.

When the Berg dealers get to sell the rebadged KTM 2 strokes,then we can expect KTM dealers will also be selling the new Bergs in Orange plastic....fair is fair!
