Perhaps my greatest day as a married man was when I stumbled outside to find this. I had to take pictures to capture the moment.

There is a joke there somewhere about dating lot lizards that use a dash of diesel for perfume. ;)

When I was in college I had to keep a high quality racing bicycle chained up outside. Sprayed it thoroughly with WD40 and after a year or two there was no rust. Plenty of dirt, but no rust.

You have to be careful where you used WD-40. It is great for breaking things loose and penetrating rust, but it stays and holds dirt. I tell my guys in the middle east to never use it on anything that will remain outside. One didn't listen, and used it on a padlock a few weeks ago. He was pretty proud of himself for taking the initiative to lube up a lock. It lasted about one week, then the winds picked up and started moving a bit more sand in the air. He finally cut that lock off last week. The mechanisms were filled with sand, to the point that the tumblers couldn't move. He learned, the hard way.

That is what she named her Ural. Every motorcycle and car has a name in our house.

Hey Ricky, she's from Oklahoma too. If I'd known they made women like this in Oklahoma, I wouldn't have spent all those years dating German girls.

What's up with Husqvarna now?

I was just trying to see Husky NA (North America) on google, and it flips over to an EN (English as in UK) website. All but a few pdf files from Husky NA remain on Google (like the Twilight Zone). Now all the Husky hype is going to Australia, as if those bloke's have not been hyped to death by KTM already. They are just using the people already in KTM with few additions, so I would not think its a big parade day in Australia, except for riders wanting one of the new TR650's or the new 900 powerhouse monsters.

It's hard to imagine being hyped any more than by a company that has previously been in Australia all along and is now a parent company of the company they are hyping. Looks like KTM is spreading leaves over their tracks and getting out of the USA (and Europe) before any legal problems develop over buying a company and then dumping it due to non-competitive reasons. Looks like BMW got the better end of this deal, and may still get the TR650 and 900 (?)

Looks like donkies was right after all. There is a half month left on the sale anyway. Anyone who wants a TR650 in US should never be worried about support while BMW is still around (the rest of Husky's model's though are probably jinxed). Kind of ended up like we all knew it would, but the TR650 is still the best race bike bargain and may be for the next century. The 900 would be nice for those who want more than 100hp (for what I'll never know after previously owning a 110 hp BMW), but it does not have a 20 year model supported by BMW for a safety net (and it is a big one as new TR650 riders will find out eventually).

All the USA has now is Husqvarna authorized dealers, for overhead and liability reasons. So parts from that slow boat from Australia may be the only down side for all non-BMW parts anyway.
