Ever ridden one
Yep. Owned one, and still swap off with my club friends.
No comparison, horsepower, handling, price. It may last longer,
But the older ones at the club seem to have same wear issues as all
The others.....I am 57, and been riding multiple bikes for 40+ years.
I really have no brand loyalty. 5 bikes in the garage all different brands.
I graduated MMI in 1980, and spent some years as a Yamaha the BMW
Mechanic, before I decided I had to make more money. I like what I like,
Different horses for different courses. The husky list is higher, but always
1500/2000 cheaper than the WR450, with better components in my opinion.
Always buy what you want is my motto, we mostly all see it different.
