Default Re: Husky SM610: Good Canyon Bike?

We sell 'em. We ride 'em. Take a test ride and find out. I took one out for a week end. With the uderstanding that I'm a 250lbs. guy, I railed on this bike. Foot out, flat track style riding all over the N. GA hills. One of the coolest bikes to play with. Just don't get stuck in the frame of mind that this can be a daily rider. It doesn't do distance without creating personal pain to one's self. But FUN- H&ll yes.

If you have seen the Deals Gap video of the guy on the yellow Goldwing, the point is made. I don't know too many guys that can run that pace on any bike.

If the Husky had a pushrod v-twin, I'd buy it. Singles suck (and thump and throb) unless they have a kickstarter like my 1951 BSA Gold Star did - it was the best and I rode it on street, desert hare & hounds and half mile flat track. Try that on your GSXR1000.

I googled it and it's a different goldwing and not close in talent. You may find it here; www.killboy.com
