Hello everyone, new guy here! Great site, happy to have found it. I hope to meet some fun people to ride with and learn great new areas to ride.

I ride a Husaberg FX450, I wanted an FE450 but couldn't find one. I got very luckly when I titled the FX, they gave me a plate without even asking!! It's a super dirtbike and just OK on the road, it's gearing is a bit low for the road and I use it more on the dirt so I like to keep it that way.

The husaberg has a plastic subframe so adding a rack would be questionable. A subframe tank is avaliable, but a pain to install and remove, so once you installed it, you'd just leave it on and settle for a heavier bike. The thing I love most about the bike is how light it feels when it's moving, I would not want to loose that! So, to make my Husaberg more dualsport friendly I built a dual sport trailer to haul extra gas and gear. I can motor down to a riding area, set up camp, ditch the trailer, ride my lightweight bike, head back to camp, pack it all up and head home. Works pretty well, it's a great way to keep a light bike and be able to adventure ride, best of both for me.

Here's a pic of my setup:
