Dirt Rider 24 Hr Test - May 2007 issue

Dirt Rider used their long term 2006 Husaberg FE650 which survived last years 24 Hour Test unscathed and ran it again in this years 24 Hour Test.

It survived! Other than a loose battery connection, the bike ran FLAWLESSLY!!!!!

I do not recall Dirt Rider ever using the same motorcycle for this event 2 years in a row. Plus using the same bike during the year as well and having zero reliability issues.

Now according to the article, Jimmy Lewis did drop the bike at home, onto its left side, punching a hole in the side case.

I was wondering when some one was going to mention this. If I read my issue correctly the bike already had 90 hours on it before the 24 hour test. It sounds like they took it to third place in the industry class. Then it Grenaded in Jimmy's drive way.....Oh that's right Jimmy made the mistake that BOSS can't stand "kick stand party foul" you may buy a new clutch cover! See Risky1 it's not you it's a flaw in the bike!
