Re: Dirt Rider 24 Hr Article.

I find it ironic that a negative is that Husaberg lacks aftermarket parts while finishing on the podium in an "aftermarket" endurance/performance test in stock form.

A lot of work and effort put in by the Boss, Brett, Fryguy and Hairfarm. Team DR 24hr has put up 2 podium finishes in 2 years, surrounding by the worlds best. Great job guys.

Re: Dirt Rider 24 Hr Article.

Hmmmmm.....
Stock FE550 goes toe to toe with macked out after market bikes. The point I just made to my brother you don't need to drop $1500.00 into the Bergs after you buy one. Awesome I can hardly wait for my issue to arrive BTW I've always thought Dirt Rider was broader based and more objective than Dirt Bike

Later

Re: Dirt Rider 24 Hr Article.

Well, I started riding KTMs in '78, Bergs in 92. Soon, the local riding area will be blue and yellow instead of orange. Can I handle it. or will I switch to a TM, or maybe a Highlander? Does my heart good to see Husaberg get some positive press, no matter the wrinkle it causes in the time/space continuim.

Buzzard I do not see that happening. KTM will not let Husaberg take off like that. They own the brand after all...

Re: Dirt Rider 24 Hr Article.

Why did this get moved to the Race & Ride forum? I thought this was more for reports about what people did on the weekend rather than headline news.

SuperMotoTeam, Are you the Husaberg rep? If I'm addressing the right guy, why won't Dirt Bike test Husabergs anymore?

Agreed, a bang up job by the boys. Imagine what the 'berg would have done with another $5000 worth the goodies (price of many of the other bikes was $14,000).

$5000 to add what, exactly?

Besides dual-sporting parts if you want to street legalized it, beefier barkbustsers and glide plate for rocky or woods, what does the bike need that is not a gadget? It's about $500 for the DS parts, $100 for for the plate and $50 for the BBs, total $650 tax and shipping included.

I was saying that for $5,000 the 'berg would have won the overall, not just best stock bike.
I also beleive that hbg sent the right people and bike.
