Post first ride on 2012 berg
Well started out well,into the first tracks which is one of my favorites,had to keep telling myself to slow down and take it easy.This was hard to do.The bike felt comfortable straight away,suspension felt good,motor crisp and very responsive.
Instilde confidence in me straight up.Nearly lost the front end early on but the bike just stood straight up.

Was at first trying to ride it like my 550 which has huge amount's of torque right thru the rev range,so found after a while i needed to go down a gear and once i did this it was fantastic.
Definately need to change my riding style to suit this bike (use the rev's more out of corner's).
All going well loving this new machine then our issue with the cornerman so we have to go back and try to find them.
Half way up miles ridge line bike stops dead.No power to fuel pump.Check all the fuse's all good,can't see any loose connection's but bike would not go,so 4 hr's later we get back to cars by way of pushing up some of the bigger hill's on the dam and towing were possible.

BIG THANKS TO BASHY FOR ALL HIS HELP.
Both of us stuff.
Very disapponted in first ride will take back to dealer tuesday and tell them to fix it.

But i did manage to do 24.7 ks i suppose.

Frank put the multi meter on it and the power is not getting to the pump after the fuse's.

The computer has cut power to the relay due to some failure

a reset puts it back to rights.

The starter is on a simple solinode and just cranks. not controld by the computer at all.

Fuel pump is though. could be some safety cut off???
no fuel pump so no start

disconnect the battery reset and all comes good.

Does is start now?

if not disconnect the battery and see

I would do a decent test ride before taking it to the shop as there is probably nothing wrong and you need to take the tools to disconnect the battery in the bush.

Not ready to join the anti-berg party yet just slighty frustrated.Especially given the great run out of the old one.
When it was going (all 24.7ks of it) it felt fantastic.
