yeah, it seems to be aimed more at the BMW/Starbucks big bike crowd, which isn't really my thing. The Hugo-Moto seems to be smaller, lighter, and more capable off-road, which is important to me. Being able to pick it up by myself after dumping it is also important. I've come across more than one guy who needed help picking up his bike to get going again.

What kind of bike are you riding there, and where?

I thought it sounded like a Suzuki. I used to have a DR350. The 650's good all around performers, and incredibly durable.

That Ducati does look pretty sweet, but it would almost certainly be the death of me, or the loss of my licence at the least. I lack the self control needed to ride one of those responsibly.

My latest two wheeled obsession is the Hugo-Moto conversion for Harley Sportsters. I've always wanted an American made adventure bike, and this is about as close as it gets.

I LOVE this. I'm going to have to start looking for an older Sportster with an Evolution motor. Sort of looks like an old 1070's dirt bike....kind of. I really like the look and I really like the smallish Harley. This is a perfect reason to have a smallish Harley. Many people told me I looked way to big for the Roadster I had as a street bike but nobody will notice with this. Sweet.
