The Husky is not a tame animal by any stretch of the imagination. It is basically a barely street legal race bike. It is a beast and is incredibly fun to ride. It is far more capable than this old man... It's taking me a while to regain woods riding techniques after several years away and several years riding road race bikes...

We rode there all last winter. I get hot when it 30 out, so when its 90+ its miserable.

I have never been to the Waveland park. I have heard others say they have tried going and its been closed when they get there, so they recommend always calling ahead to make sure its open for riding.

Have you ever been to the Badlands? I have been once and don't care to go back. Lots of sand and nothing real exciting to ride. I'd give Waveland a try if you think the Badlands is to far for one day.

Nice bike. Its 3" taller than a tw and 2" taller than an xt and double the price of a nice used xt. Im sure its a bulletproof engine but so are the rest. It all depends on what you want and what you want to spend..

I don't know what it's worth, and who knows what it will bid up to, but generally speaking, bikes go a lot cheaper on CL or local classifieds. Really a buyers market now, so if you are patient, you'll find what you want for a good price. I'm a tight @$$ right now, until my wife gets back to work It looks to be in good shape. What are you running now?

Why not look at an XR250r Nathan seemed to do just fine on his. I guess I like the idea of a 6 speed and parts seem to be cheap. I had a bear claw for ya but I ate it sorry.
