I saw those when they announced them. Probably the best build package anyone's released yet (referring to stark vargs which don't exist yet either)
It's a very similar spec to the Stark. The ship date on the Varg has been pushed out about a year already.

Where would you go to ride off road near Portland? Just curious.
It's just in the parking lot I'm sure, at least for now. Would be cool if they did a demo day at Browns Camp. I just want to see how it feels and fits.

I would rather an Alta, but you know.

I saw that. Rieju/gasgas has been making motorcycles for a long time. I'd expect that one to happen first. It's all new electric infrastructure but stark is literally going from ground up on everything.

I'm betting the offroad tunes of those kyb boingers are better than the stark as well.

Gasgas Enduro bikes are no joke, I got to ride a 2 stroke at China hat years ago (when I had my Husaberg) that was awesome.

The Varg has a lot of promises but the delays have folks pretty pissed.

I have to do a video of my buddy's 900SS with the original Conti exhausts one day even if the sound from a video is barely capable to capture the might of those things.

While I can appreciate the overall look, I would look like a monkey fucking a football on that tiny scooter and with less than an inch of front suspension travel, the ride would be awful.

Now you just need to fill up the wardrobe so you can be wearing at least 3 Ducati branded items at all times.
actually, I have the Klim A3 gear, was joking about it with the sales peeps on how I look like a pretentious fuck now due to my gear and the bike. But the good gear is needed due to the lack of wind and rain protections
