It is too cold outside, just saying. Anyone going to Indy Supercross? This is an awesome year. The competition is tight.

Amen on the cold Chris, it's hard to get excited about riding when it's zero outside.

Did you rebuild the top end on the KTM yet?

I installed some bark busters and a skid plate on the WR, so should be ready to go if the weather ever breaks.

Yes we are going. I hope they all avoid injury so we will have a good show.

I might go if a vendor sends us free tickets.

More importantly barring something crazy next Saturday I will be at Anaheim III

Lucky you. No top end rebuild yet. My little garage area I has too much bottled water. The bike is still running good so I plan on checking the valves again and if they didn't come up any I might just keep going. When I do it I will go with a 540 kit and from TT Racing. Thinking of a stage 2 cam also.

That was quick. I really want a 690 but all of the electronics scares me. My 525 is good for now and once some of my debt is gone I might consider new.

I would keep the 525 and buy the Terra. It would be cheaper. Set the 525 up for straight offroad.

Do you still have them and what so you think of parts availability in the future?

Yeah we still have a few, I don't think they'll be a parts issue on the old Huskys.

The Terra is a great bike for what it is. I think the best bang for the buck.

Some Norwegians riding in a few feet of powder.
Amazing!
