Welcome to the Husqvarna tribe. Taskys is good as is Bills in Salem and Motosportz for accessories out of Vancouver WA.

And really, everybody looks better in red than orange.
getting in the rover right this minute and heading to taskys,

Looking for a ride this morning since it is sunny out for the minute. I will see you at Tasky's this morning. Another meetup to follow our chance encounter at Lynnwood Motoplex a few months ago :-).

Congrats on the new bike Mark, and also on the knee getting better. With the amount of bikes you go thru, maybe they should make this thread sticky?

How many more bikes can you go thru before the DMV wants a slice and makes you get a dealers license?

UPDATE!!!

Just got back from a quick ride, mixed it up, street around the lake, some dbl track, then just a touch of single track..

I should have known there are no other bikes but orange

I've been spoiled thats for sure.. The Husky is definately a nice bike.. but well.. I'm not digging it compared to KTM thats for sure. It feels 'old'.. not as smooth or refined as the xc4 KTM motor. So all you droolers out there.... ride em first

Just add a 200xcw to the mix and your good to go best of both worlds. I do love my 530exc but sure wouldnt let go of my 200. Don't forget you havent been in the saddle for awhile Mark.

Has it had the 'power up' thing done. Resistor remaps the FI to bump power. Common cheap upgrade, especially if the pipe is changed.

But, everyone has their preferences ..
