Man those new Husky 4 strikers are sweet. Did you get the 510? Wonder if any designs came over from the Sweedish made 4 strokes?



Like remember one of the 1st 4 strokes from Husky came on a 2 stroke lower end, with a pint of oil in the cam case with two reed vales for lower end oiling..klazy stuff.

I believe any custom chopper (OCC, BigDog) would also work as well (or better) as the three you list above. With knobbies of course.

Ms. C u r showing your age. I know they been built by Cagiva since about 1986 and that's about all i know. I know it's cool to have an actual dirt bike i can ride to work without being hassled by the man, tho. Just like the ol' days.

Also, real easy to do your own maintenance including valve adjust. O i got the 250 would u pay attention? DR test says it's fast, feels like a 280 they said... an weighs like 260 pounds.

"Can be ridden with surprising ease on most motocross courses."



So can an FLH if you go real slow.



C'mon Sean, admit it, these street bikes turned into dirt bikes are nothing more than gussied up posuers waiting to inflict major injury on anyone who tries to ride one semi-fast off road.



450 lbs is still 450 lbs no matter how you suspend it. Maybe nice for fire roads, but I'd hate to take one through some moderate sized sandy whoops at speed.

What, adjust valves with a scredriver and a 10mm wrench? Madness.



I like two fiftees. 260 lbs for a steet legal bike is really good.



Taken it on any trail rides yet?

it uses shims but ye do nae hafta take cams out to get to them. Only paved trails so far, tho Adelanto GP really sounds appealing. Not. I am thinking vet track at MX park, two laps then retire gracefully to lawn chair and cooler...

He means with surprising ease if you are blessed with talent and skill such as possessed only by the chosen few upon which are bestowed such magnificent gifts including but not limited to $20K BMWs.
