Thanks guys!

Just to make it clear, I DID NOT race. This is the toughest race in Croatia, I don't have nor the skill or the money to back it up. Of 17 experts that finished at least ten bikes were trashed.

I recently asked a question on this forum, how come many of you ride 650's but I guess you ride different kind of terrain.

On this race there were no 4T Husabergs, mainly 2T different brands and small bore 4T KTM's and Sherco's.

'04-'08 Husabergs are, in my opinion "old style" enduro bikes. If I raced this race I'd be happy to get to CP3 but the bike would be trashed....

Anyways, glad that you enjoy this thread and I'll keep posting "reports", hopefully by the end of the year I catch some more riding time...

Great photos. Better to go out and watch others ruin their equipment.

I hate races that are "bike breakers" and mud pits ...I just see no reason to put myself through that.
A 650 is definitely not for that type of riding as it will just wear you down ... Better on open stuff.
I used to race a 250 2t, now I race a 144. Much lighter and doesn't wear me out
I race xc and enduros.
it seems to me with the advent of extreme sports, a lot of organizations are trying to turn enduros in to one. I have no interest!
Thanks from bushmechanic

Awesome pix. As stated above, the 650 is totally the wrong machine for this. Indeed, Husaberg was pressuring Jarvis to roll the 570 in super enduro when it was introduced and he couldn't make it happen. Fortunately, HBG relented and he did ok on the smaller 4 stroke. Finally, he kicked ass on the 2 stroke. It's just not the type of course that rewards big power and less flickable handling. Still, your pix were awesome and I have huge respect for your having navigated your 'berg through the course!

Hi Makazica,
Wow nice photo's and vids, thanks for that.
The bikes the topriders use,are mostly 300 2 strokers like the redbull races for instance the Erzbergrodeo.
The difference is that if they thrash a bike it won 't hurt their wallet, as we have to pay the full bill in case of damage

Soft Enduro

Past weekend I joined a couple of my friends, BMW riders for a two day ride around Velebit mountain. Two of them are off road beginners and one is a solid rider. I borrowed a KTM 990 Adv off my friend just to add salt on the wound of my BMW equipped friends....

Being the fastest of the pack, I rode last and helped the less experienced to manage. I haven't ridden big bikes for a year, since I sold my LC4 Adv and I have to tell you...... I LOVED it. Lots of power, comfortable, stable....can't do Graham Jarvis shit but I haven't missed that for a sec....

Will need to get a 950 Adv soon ( I prefer the carb over EFI)!!

Pics:





BMW....



Seriously......if not a 950 Adv then a HP2....mad bike, love it.



Beemers watching how a KTM goes up the hill....



This is 1500+ m above see level, called Zavižan, beautiful place.



Random scenery



A little orange in the back...



HP2 E ......



Josip Broz "Tito" was a president of Jugoslavia, not to get into political and historical shit......but the man had a really good taste....his hunting "cabin" in National park Risnjak, name of the location is Lividraga.....one word: SICK!!
