Four days, 1100+km, life is good!

I just got back from a four day, 1100+ kilometre ride in Australia's Snowy Mountain region. I was a bit tentative before the ride as this sort of thing is not really the Berg's forte, however it performed absolutely FLAWLESSLY and left a very positive impression on the other guys on the ride.

My pictures can be seen here: http://photobucket.com/albums/v88/Knope ... eb%202005/

And a ride reports can be seen here: http://www.dirtbikeworld.net/dirtbike/s ... hp?t=12211

I was a bit concerned at the start of the third day as my bike was running really rough, esp at low rpms, and stalling a lot. It took me a good two hours to work out that I'd left the choke on! DOH! That was the closest I came to having a mechanical issue over the whole 4 days. Not even one bolt came loose. Can you tell I love this bike?


Some of the better photos are:

Flowing trails through the fog coming into Grant


Crossing the Dargo river (i think)

Views from the top of Mt Buller


The trails just kept on comin'


Some places were worth stopping for


Having fun in the twisty's

OKEY, thats it!!!
I must, this summer, try to do something like that here in Sweden to show you guys what our beautiful country has to offer.


Maybe my FS650 isn't the best bike for the job but I never said I was that smart either...


Looks absolutely awesome Knopey
Loved the "sub-adero". Didn't know they could do that...
