New TE610 owner signing in!

It's the bike (and the experiences) that I've been anticipating for years... A bike that I can enjoy in the dirt, a bike that I can cruise down the highway at 70mph with... It's the Husqvarna TE610! I had a 2004 TE250 and loved it in the woods, but have always wanted to have a more highway-oriented dualsport. Here it is!

I've watched Long Way Round / Long Way Down many times, when watching it have thought - YES, I want to do that, but with singletrack! (WA/ID/OR, etc - NW adventure riding). Can't wait, but for winter will be focused on rain commuting with it and gearing it up for adventures.


So far the bike has:
  • Handguards
  • Extra lighting
  • Moose racing expedition rack
  • Street tires and original dirt tires
Next:
  • Power up kit (including muffler)
  • Protection: bash plate and radiator guards
  • Bags
  • Ride it a ton - all over the place - in all weather :)
You know it's funny- I was reading a thread on what people would hope that Honda would build for a good Dualsport. My idea of an ideal dualsport/adventure bike would be .... the Husqvarna TE610. So I bought one. The only thing I would change would be the cam chain replacement interval (30K would be nicer than 10K, but I am happy to deal with it!). I guess kickstart backup would be nice too- but there's "always something" right? :)
Looking forward to talking TE610 with you all!
