Hi there from HP2 rider

Well, actually I own one but are waiting for it to be delivered. I had a few mods that I wanted and the HPN 23l tank took a bit to be delivered. But I should be able to ride it home in about 2 weeks!



I intend to do a lot of adventuring on it so this site will be a great source of info to me!

For you HP2 Enduro riders out there, I started a dedicated website for the HP2E with already loads of good info becoming available.

Cheers!
Rob

Hello Rob,
It's nice you have your dream machine. Hope you have very good rides and adventure on it.

What I learnt from the life (or let's say it thought me), it is not the size which is important !

Cheers

Got one also with 22,000 miles. Great spunky little machine--just needs decent brakes.

Thumbs up HP2 too

hello Rob,

got one too, done only one longish trip (3 wks) with it and loved it.. (had a GS1200 before - a bit heavy I thought)

The fuel range is an issue.

I have the standard tank but I am waiting for the Touratech fuel tanks to became available.

I use the Touratech tailpack and can fit all my camping gear, tool kit and a 5lt jerry can.

Also got some basic upgrades ie. Wilbers rear shock and springs, TT sump guard, wunderlich screen.

enjoy the ride..
