I was out playing tag today and came across a horrible accident, in the carpool lane on eastbound 394, at roughly Louisiana Ave. Red coupe upside down facing east, front end severely caved in. No idea what the cause was, but traffic was stopped the bystanders that had stopped to help had that look about them, that something awful had just occurred.

Kinda harshed my riding buzz.

I deny any involvement. My absence this week is purely coincidental.



The car wreck thing sucks of course.

Oh yeah. It's one of the few bikes on the market that I find at all interesting.

Light reading

Huh. Looks to be more street oriented than I would have expected from Husky. Power spec looks good, weight okay, but the street bias - especially with only a 3.5 gallon tank seems odd to me.

Guess I'll continue to wish for a WR450R.

What, are you high? That bike actually looks good. The new DL 1000 concept floating around is .
