Well, I am going to go get a new DL and a tag for the Big Ugly. That should take half a day. But I'm riding somewhere. Nephew 1 said something about riding Saturday so ....I got that glimmer of hope going for me.

Hmmm, does DL mean drivers license or is your next bike a Suzuki?

ooooOooooHHh


Complete with headlights and turn signals, the Husqvarna Concept BAJA has a number of features to suggest it's close to becoming a production model.
Husqvarna showcased the Concept BAJA during the 2012 EICMA show in Milan, following in the footsteps of the similarly styled Concept MOAB debuted in 2011. The BAJA is Husky’s modern interpretation of the scramblers popular in the 60’s and 70’s, with notable influence coming from the Husqvarna Cross 400



If this happens, KilLeR is history.

And the link. http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/827/14...irst-Look.aspx


The twice pipes for a single are more than a little goofy... but....the aftermarket can always stick more gas there a la the 950SE tank.

Click on the pic for a giant pic. Looking at that thing, an aftermarket single pipe will save 2 maybe 3... hundred pounds.
