Two things that will interest all of you that know him -- first he stared for quite awhile at Fifth's new Duc (The Lawyer had a pic on her phone), and it clearly raised his spirits -- he was out of the cath lab for maybe an hour and had just gotten the news about the valve replacement.

He also told the docs that they need to get this squared away because he has motorcycles that are not worn out yet.
Give our best to The Col. He is in our thoughts.

Please let him know that he is in our thoughts as well. And you might not want to let him look at pictures of Fifth's Ducati too much until after the surgery. You two still have alot of riding together left to do.

Laughed out loud driving down the road! Weld a bid 'ol "N" in the middle of that sumbitch.

Looks like Husky is going orange. Glad I didn't run out and buy one.

This is probably a good thing. I didn't want to see a Husqvarna maxi-scooter any time soon.

I can think of other reasons why you should be glad you didn't buy a Husky....

Yeah, I think you are right. Just when I thought they (BMW) were going to get it right. Might just be time to sell the 610 and look for something orange.

690 enduro is the only thing that is comparable. I would have gotten one if they were available at the local dealer.

It was a toss up between the 610 and a 690 when I found this one.

That's dumb. Who cares who owns them now! Your (and PJ's) Husky is an awesome bike. It's no DRZ....but it's damn close.


BTW, the wee strom has left the building.
