Nice job! Editing gets easier with practice (like most things in life). My computer does not embed either... I'm convinced its my security settings.

Try it using a different browser like IE or chrome. I had the same issue with a computer running norton 360.

Nice video, vexy!

Are you looking to buy, service or get parts. Get my parts from Chaplin. Very good response. Can't speak to service because I've never taken my Huskys to a shop. If Eddie's Vintage was still in business, I'd recommend him. Nice guy. Other than that, I really can't recommend a shop.

same here. never been to a shop around here. I have gotten parts from the place in worcester a couple of times (Wagners, i think). he didn't charge shipping, and sold me a rear taillight really cheap. i think maybe someone else must have special ordered it and it sat around.

otherwise everything else i have ever needed i got from either Hall's or MotoXotica online.

Jay Reynolds works at Wagners and he is a advrider, although I dont remember his adv name. He came on one of our big bike rides last year on a Husky 449. Nice guy and when I was looking at a 449 he seemed willing to work on a deal. I think he is the sales manager, or parts manager or something.. dont know why I think that, I have his card right here in front of me. I have been thinking about heading up there to see if they have any of the new 650 Tera's in stock.

You realize they are over 400 pounds wet? Great looking bikes, but based on the much maligned BMW 650 motors.

Jay is a nice guy - adv handle is Yeti something.......
After talking with him at the "fun run" it seems that he is no longer with wagner.

Matt - big dog adventures has a good Tera review. Seems like there is not a lot of aftermarket support yet - so not sure how that will affect your farkelitus.....

I do...not really interested in one.. just want to see one.. and I totally disagree with your "much maligned" motor comment..the only good thing about the BMW 650 bikes is that engine.. it is the weight and suspension that BMW has always failed on .. but that engine is a bomb proof component that goes tens of thousands of miles w/o issue. It is not a race engine but it goes 6k between oil changes in some formats. The 650 xchallenge and xcountry are highly regarded in Europe as a reliable lightweight adventure bike.

edit: I had high hopes for the Tera.. was really hoping they would make it a G650X with good suspension.. 330lbs... 54 hp.. they failed once again.

My bad, I was going from memory and that's not so clear anymore. I guess I was remembering all the problems I had read about on the X bike. If the Hus is built with the same stuff that went on the X Challenge, I'd be scared of it. When I saw that bike in Cycle World Magazine,.. WOW! nice looking and possible my next bike. I was hoping like you, 330lbs.. 54hp and great suspension.

Video clips from the toys for tots ride........

Hi Guys, I figured I would post these links here as well, your old riding buddy "Redbeard" has a lot of camera-time in them. He fit right in with our group of misfits and does not miss riding with you guys at all. Enjoy!

Pilgrim Sands Trail Riders charity ride at the Demoranville Farm.
First five miles of trail....riding behind "dirt bike jimmy"


Part 02 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHXkjBHHc7g
Part 2, up to the 10 mile mark, following Redbeard and Matt

Part 03 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mQRbMNQRHM
Part 3, up to the 15 mile mark. following Redbeard and Jimmy.

True, Jay is no longer at Wagners. I used to go up there quite often, Mark and Jay are great guys. I bought my TE 610 from Jay. Much like what happened at Gengras, the owners want to run it like a one of their car dealerships. It doesn't work. I have been out to Roost Powersports in Thomaston, and they are all Husky. Husband and wife operation. They know their stuff. They had the power up parts for me in stock. I haven't been to Chaplin besides the Husky Grand Opening last year. Got to meet Fred Hoess, ISDE gold medalist. He is a factory rider and factory rep.

Great video vexy. Add Utah to my list.

I bought my 610 from Mark at Wagners, and was a customer and dealt with Jay. Seemed like a nice guy and very good rider. BUT, the lack of customer service drove me away. Jay would NOT call me back, and this was on multiple issues over a four or five month period dealing with my GS1150. I heard from others, the same issue. Maybe that's why he isn't there any more. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why. It's called CUSTOMER SERVICE. Haven't been back since.

Saw one down in New Jersey at the Meteor ride. Very pretty bike and nicely priced. Something like $7500? Although I might be a bit biased as I have 3 Huskys in my possesion.
