Rode the Husky to work today...makes me appreciate the decent fairing, windshield and heated grips of the Multi that much more.

But I did find some heated grips that will work on the Husky for $53...and am seriously considering the TrailTech Vapor computer for it.

I did both of those to my Husky TE250,that and a Seat Concepts kit, the only reason I added the heated grips was because of one to many frosty mornings in Wisconsin.
Still it will never be a commuter, but it's wicked awesome on single track.

I know...the Multi is the commuter. Got home from work, switched to the Multi and just got home from a little 130 mile jaunt. My legs are ice but my hands and torso, comfy as can be.

Crystal clear water with no ripples = bad idea.

Fairly new rider, got my license in early august '13 and have been researching/looking for a bike since and been having some troubles.

Been looking at wr250rs and ktm 640s most recently, and am thinking one of those is what I want. The problem is, those dont show up around here very often, and while id be willing to drive a ways, or possibly do a fly and drive, but I havent been able to test drive one of these yet. I definately would want to test drive both before making my decision to see how well I like each, and if the 640s vibes will be too much for me.

I guess the main point of the post is that I want to test drive them before makimg a 5hr road trip or a fly and drive, and am hoping someone in the area would be willing to let me test drive theirs. (Im in the cedar rapids area) so if anyone has one of these in the area and is looking to sell, or willing to let me test drive, please send a pm.

Thanks
Bacon
