Indy - 2009 ish Husabergs have the forward leaning cylinder with the crank shaft sitting over the gearbox. Cool bikes, but not quite a KTM clone although the suspension is pretty close

If you need to find someone to hook up with at the enduro, my two co-workers are planning on heading down for it. You've already run into one of them on pitracer. The RIZ is the PO of my Husky and he tends to run a pretty mellow pace. I won't call him slow, but he's more out to enjoy himself than prove how fast he is. He was still flipping the $10 coin between woodsman and Vet C when I talked to him today. Can't miss his Husky 300 says RIZZZZ on the sides.

Yeah, hard to miss his bike with that big Riz on the sides...lol

I've liked what I've seen so far of that Husaberg. I'm guessing it has a lower COG with that configuration.

The ad says it has 144 hours on it. I ask them to give me a quote online so I'm sure I'll be getting a call next week from them. ;)

Don't mind at all, btw.

With this many guys showing up, I'm not gonna try to keep the group together tight. Since the main corridor is hard to get lost on, we'll just all go at our own pace heading south and I'll stop at the big parking lot trailhead just north of Nelsonville and collect everyone up. Then head into Nelsonville and chow down, head up to the other loop after that...ride around in there for a while and head back up to the parking lot in NS again. That way no problem if anyone breaks off or gets lost. You have to go north up the main corridor to get to the parking lot again, or if you didn't trailer you can just ride out any of the county roads.

Can you tell me - do I need a Wayne Sticker in addition to my normal street tag?

If so, is there a place along 33 to buy one without going into Nelsonville?
Buy one at Begley's Campground I suppose.

I'd be on the WRR with a new rear tire but I'm sure everyone else will be on a real dirt bikes.
I`ve done it about 8 times. Normaly I would say don`t make this your first but due to the nice weather you will do fine. DO NOT stray off the trail !!! There is bailing wire all over the place and you WILL find it. If you make a real try at any creek crossing and don`t make it,people are very good about helping you.Don`t worry about keeping time on this one...just ride and have fun and learn......GO FOR IT.......GOOD LUCK !!! I don`t think they run the "mud bougs" anymore but if they do,speed is your friend and always head for where the people are standing...that`s where the solid ground is.

Unless it has changed since last year, you need either street plates or an off-road sticker, not both so you should be golden.

COG may be slightly higher than on a traditional 450. Their goal was to bring the center of rotating mass closer to the COG to make a 4 stroke handle more like a two stroke. It worked to a certain extent and I like the bikes. The FE390 is my favorite of the bunch. The bikes are pretty wide between your calves - felt a little funny to me in that respect, but it wouldn't stop me from riding one.
