Re: Husaberg.org Race Team?

Great stuff guys.

For me, it is the responsibility of BMG to create a "factory" team. Although we are supporting 5-10 guys through special deals on bikes and parts, we are not yet able to compete at full team level. At some point we will achive that. Quite frankly, we dont need to yet. (Thats gonna get a reaction )

That being said, the idea behind this post was to create a race "team" sponsored by Husaberg.org. You guys decide where and how, BMG will support it with the bike and parts. I have a hard time believing there would be a more enthusiastic team. And it would be great fun to be a part of.

Getting everyone to agree may be the challenege. And perhaps I shouldve asked shwim his opinion before I nominated him president :P.
Between he and Brett and the rest of you guys, I'm sure it'll get sorted.

cheers

I'm all for it, though the reality of volunteerism sounds a lot more achieveable than a David and Goliath pro effort

Cheers,

Brett

Re: Husaberg.org Race Team?

this is bollocks!

husaberg have been overproducing for years and the resale value has been on the floor.

wise marketing says that the dealer needs to sell the bike for full retail and that the resale has to be very, very, very good. the first thing husaberg must do is regain consumer confidence in the resale value so selling all that you produce is a brilliant way of doing it!!!

hats off for producing too few machines!

That is the best idea on this topic yet! Apply, build it with BMG help and race it with Fry or boss in off road or sombody else in Supermoto or GNC. That sounds like a good and achievable plan with quite a bit of exposure.
Of course I personally would like to team with Dez and do the Vegas to Reno with one other old fart. We could be team Old Fat Guy.

Re: Husaberg.org Race Team?

What about using the same bike for supermoto and enduro.
It could show how versatile the bike really is.

Maybe it's a dumb idea??

Re: Husaberg.org Race Team?

Jedi,

I've been here a bit, and I'm glad to hear this finally coming from you. I have stuck around partly because of efforts that this whole thing will "take off" at some point.

You, I would assume, are in this thing for a while, you're vested. This gives you the advantage of working on a "legacy". It's kinda like building a baseball team that has been doing crappy, right? IMHO it would start relatively small. You guys did the 24 hour deal, and that ended with success. Because of this, I'm not surprised about your timing for this thread. You seem to be in a mental state to do a big race this year.

Start with one race this year, maybe two. Along the lines of what Daleo suggested. If you did this, it might make it easier to get one good rider to show up (since you're only askin for one measly race out of him/her).

The idea of other sponsers also makes things seem more feasible. Also, it commits you, since it isn't only you that takes the hit if you don't show. I also think it is bogus to say that KTM doesn't want to sell more Husabergs, does Honda not want to sell more Acura's??

Anyway, second year you bite off a bit more. After that, you would probably feel more comfortable doing the whole race support gig, and things would start to develop further. Though I am a fan of the desert and woods stuff, I also think the Supermoto idea is a great one to investigate.

Asking the group to support things financially is somewhat unrealistic. We are having a hard enough time to support this website (and in my case misc. shenanigans that people suggest others do). But, it is a good idea to get us on the same page. There are tons of dudes down around the Pheonix area, and you could get them to show up as fans, or as lower class riders, as Brendan suggested. There were 8 or so bikes at the Pheonix ride. If each one entered a desert race, plus the guys you bring, and all you did was pit together, that would be a cheap large advertisement.

I'll stop babbling.

You neglected to mention Kenny Noyes hucking your bike. Was he trying to keep up with the eleven year old girl ?
