I just got my Odyssey batteries in...one for the HP and one for Dorito. One more thing complete and one less thing to worry about.

I want to wheelie it to!!!

She's a beauty Lance!! I have a thing about those bikes. I'll be begging to ride it!
Anybody know why they stopped making/importing them? I am also perplexed by them not sponsoring it as a Dakar bike. Seems ideal for that purpose. Maybe they are going to put those eggs in the Husquey basket..... ?

You already answered your own question. They've gone all in on the new Husqvarna line, a much more diverse lineup with which they are hoping to compete with KTM over time.

The aquisition was back in June 2007. If you google BMW plans for husqvana there are a few artlicles about the stratagy to add cheaper street bikes to compete with other B rated brands. If i was running BMW I'd take a couple years to fully integrate the corporate side i.e. ERP, MRP, employee benifits, Shed 20% of the workforce. Then in 2009 i'd have Changed the branding. They're wasting valuable marketing legs in motocross and the endero world.

Thanks all for the congrats all. My new Bday gift will fit in well with my other girls. I share my girls so rides extend to this dirty girl.

Bruce and Dave I'll need your excellent tutoring once I start wrenching on this pretentious little vixin. Btw, when I was gasing up yesterday, this guy asked if I was sponsored by BMW to race. Now that is funny on so many levels.

Congrats!
