P.S. very, very few have needed major service from what I've heard

With my luck I would be one of those individuals Didn't know that one of the Japaneese bikes didn't have a warranty. I may end up with a used bike until Either there is a dealer in UT or I get impatient. Till then I guess I will

I think that Husky and Husaberg are the only two offering a decent warranty on dirtbikes. The TEs are proving to be very reliable, and the performance is amazing. Far more bike than my limited riding ability can handle, but very big fun.

this pic not far from TransAmTrail

I just got back tonight from a 1248 mile learning experience. I spent two days on the TransAmTrail, and the rest doing my own thing. I was a little worried and carried about 5 lbs of tools with me, never needing any of them.
From Colinville Kentucky to Austin Texas, on trails, watter crossings, dirt roads, gravel roads, back roads, highways, and interstates, the 2006 Husqvarna TE 610 performed flawlessly. I don't know if it is worth a ride report, but I have a few really cool pictures for the TE 610 people.

ride report - Sunday

I had Pirelli Scorpion A/T's(come stock on the KTM 640 ADV) on for this trip, since I would ride plenty of blacktop, but a set of Continental TKC 80's, I ordered before the trip, awaits me at my local Husky dealer, Austin Sports Cycles.

Here is a picture where you can better see the tires. I found a salamander about 6 feet behind where I am standing in the picture, it was really cool looking, but I wasn't able to catch it for a photo.

Thanks! I have to get ready to go tailgate for the UT/Ohio State game today in my hometown, so the ride report will have to wait until Sunday. It will be a short one, since I don't want to write about the embarrassing stuff which cuts out about two thirds of the trip. haha

Hey buffallodan,
Should we load ride reports on this thread, or put them in the BIG ride report thread, and just link to them here?

How should we do it?

OK - tailgate preparation time...

Glad you made it back safe Chadley...

Hey Chadley,
First let me say "you damn well better give us a ride report with all the good stuff ". I did nearly 500 miles this weekend and learned a few things myself ...I am going to post a ride report this week when I get the pics processed (I know I should go digital ). I think it is better to post the reports in the RR section so Non-Thumpers can see what shinanigans we are up too...man did I do some stupid stuff this time out . You know that expression, if you aren't on the edge - you aren't learning, , I darn near went over the edge a few times, but the Husky saved my ass every time ...tbc

Dan

six smilies could be a record...

btw Chadley make sure you tell us how the AT's performed and what pressures you ran, I am thinking of spooning my set back on but am not sure if they can handle the terrain I ride???

I am always surprised at how well they perform, for a streetish tire of course. I picked up my TKC80's yesterday which I will start using if I can ever wear out the Pirelli's. They still look new, weird.

Oh yeah 32 on the street, and 20 on the dirt.
