what do you love about your 70 degree berg?

i've got a pile of unused video footage of a few FE570 and FE450s. just thought i'd do something different and stick in everyone's comments about their FE390, 450 or 570.

obviously can't fit too much on the screen but if everyone's okay with it i'll just take bits of comments and use forum names as acknowledgment.

EDIT: done

Re: what do you love about your 70 degree berg?

Sap on tap, love riding the fat wave of torque, shiort shifting and gathering pace with ease. Love those moments when I'm caught in a cog too high and can just wind it on and tear a hole in the time space continuum, then she will handle like a 250 in the tight stuff and carve up single trail. And not to mention the looks and attention my long legged swede gets where ever we go.

i'll have to split all those up and use the lot.
interesting you mentioned the 250, i was chasing a yz250f yesterday through single track and it's the first time the berg has felt a tad heavy. but everything else more than makes up for 115kg dry.

Predictable and non-hesitant.

anyone else? might be finishing off the vid in 24 hours time, although more likely two days time as got two rides for the weekend... one on the berg and one on the DR650.

Re: what do you love about your 70 degree berg?

If you want to represent reality (as opposed to making a commercial for a motorcycle design that has been assassinated by its own maker or falsifying reality), show some footage of a Husaberg rider pushing his motorcycle because the crappy factory fuel pump stranded him and his "go anywhere" machine somewhere remote, obscure, and wild.

i am going to point out some of the glaring oversights in the design too e.g. the crap fuel pump in pre 0ct 2011 models.

Oh yeah I feel the weight but I'd rather do it on this over any other bigbore 4 banger.

so true. i had a brief ride on the new 501 and seems like a great bike but it didn't have the same low down grunt or mid range... no replacement for displacement i guess.

done the video. put it in the first post as well.
