Hi,

Here is my good friend -and Sevilla (Spain) Harley dealer owner- Pepe off roading with great success his PAS in a heavy rally event two weeks ago, the Xtrem 300.

Link:

You can see others bikes riding the race: rally, enduro (dual purpose) and some big trails...

And after three pressure water cleaning to take the mud out of his PAS -obviously with care-, no single electronic fail, no error showed at the display, and all working perfectly like (or better) the first day...

Well to be honest I believe the PA is a a POS. I have one and have ridden it 26,000 miles across the U.S. and down to Peru. It's nothing but trouble and unreliable. The belt drive system does nothing but fail in deep mud and river crossing. Once it begins to slip itss only time b4 it fails and leaves u stranded. If your idea of an adventure bike is to set it up with soft luggage ride 2 star bucks this the bike is for you but if you really want to the bike to cross a continent purchase anything but this POS. It's unreliable, expensive to fix and parts are not available in third world countries. I left mine for free and flew home

You bought a Pan America with a belt drive? Do you also have a bridge over the Darien Gap to sell us?

1. A toothed belt drive will not slip when wet if properly adjusted.
2. The pan America hasn’t got a belt drive. Toothed or otherwise.
3. Jog on back to what ever forum you came from.
