Sounds like a desert sled or Barstow/Vegas or Baja 1000 ride.
Well out of my league in the dirt, you'll have to find crazy desert riders to practice with.
I called service honda and they told me the 2012 500af with ported head, rad valve, and rejetted carb will put out 68-69hp not bad for a 213.8 pound bike. I will use my tax and buy it Feb 2013 since u only live once. Some moto dudes put out 90-100hp from ths motor not sure how long they would last without a refreshing?
