no, we didn't agree on the price. I got some more background info (tnx for the tip BelgiqueBastard!) and the Husa seems to have 13000km in stead of 8000 ... that's a lot for a SM ...

anyway, if anyone has a good bike for a good price ...

Id use the bike on a 800km weekend provided I could get gas when needed.

Heck. I just bought my FE 650 out in Boise a few weeks ago and did 2600 miles taking a week to get back to Chicago. I was delayed by needing new tires in Desmoines. My D606 were shot and slippery the night before as I hightailed it to Suoux City, SD.

I did a few hundred miles off road getting started 100 miles into Stanley.

The next day I followed 75 with the Salmon River running on one side of me then on the other up to a little dot on the map called Gibbonsville. I took a right there and took the road through town that turned into a dirt road. It went up the mountain and down, 45 minutes or so each way. This was a dirt version of the Dragon down at Deal's Gap. Pure heaven. The road went across range land with cows and horses roaming across the road.

This continued when I took a dirt road out of Dillon, MT, that took me just out side Yellowstone. Incredible. Highly recommended.

Sadly 212, the north east exit out of Yellowstone was closed.

I'll cut myself short on the details but I changed the oil twice on the trip as a safety measure. I didn't want to abuse the bike the wrong way.

I did have a two gallon fuel bladder that kept me from worrying about gas but I only needed it on the dirt road out of Dillon.

Ok, my back ground is taking a Ducati 996 on a 500+ mile trip with out thinking twice so I know torture racks.

The 'Berg is anything but. You just need to move your but around and not ride like an old man on a Beemer with your butt planted in the same spot the whole time.

I loved the trip and the bike I took it on. I hope to repeat it in the future. My buddies want to head out to the Black Hills after what I told them it was like, great roads, paved and dirt.

Hmm? Could I get a steal of a deal on an '09 570 or 450 come this spring? I need to make more money and the economy needs to keep looking for the bottom. I'm the only one I know that has been buying since the world is on whole sale.

Sadly I did do a job on some new gear on a mountain road at 6k feet or so when I neglected to respect the potential for ice, riding on nobbies, and leaning instead of hanging off. Luckily the Galvestone pants did a great job on the pavement and later in keeping the rain out though they were a bit aerated.

Bottom line; you can do most any trip on any bike you desire as long as you are willing to deal with its shortcomings and plan accordingly.

I hope you find a deal on an FS. I hear its a demon on the roads.

Cheers!
