Thanks. I may end up doing that. I was going to be up around Osseo this weekend and wanted to stop and take a look at the bike, but evidently it's going to have to wait till they have one in. Maybe I'll have better luck in WI.

EDIT: Yikes, that's >220 miles from me. I think I'll just wait till they have it in Minneapolis. I'm only looking right now, not going to buy till Spring anyway...... Though if I were buying, it looks like they have one in stock.

According to Husky North America accessories are going through customs now and will be in dealerships by December. They weren't able to elaborate on what was going to be available.

Has anyone heard when the Strada will hit dealers? Been quiet so far and I have a hankering for the tubeless version.

Givi Trekker luggage, certainly. Screen and handguards too.

How is that dealer?
It's about the same distance from me as BMW/Husky in Atlanta.

Got the bike on Wednesday night. Took it for a very quick spin around the city. It rained yesterday so didn't want to get it dirty . Will be riding up Angeles Crest Hwy tomorrow (no off-roads though) with a friend that has an 800GS. Let's see what he has to say about the bike... - I should get some OK pictures in tomorrow's ride...

Those of you in Northern California, Moore and Son's in Santa Cruz has a couple bikes and Cycle Specialties/Modesto BMW has a couple plus a DEMO bike!! They both report already selling a bike each!! Both places are more then impressed by the bike and genuinely believe it's a KLR killer for what you get, FI, 58HP, 60+ MPG, 200+ milage range, comfortable seat and strong subframe!! The accessory after market, Touratech, Jessy Luggage and others have many options coming down the line.........for $6999 it seems like a hell of a bike!

Specifically speaking, it's a little less dirt oriented then the TE630 but what it looses it gains in many other areas. If you want a dirt bike look else where but if you want a fairly light weight off-road bike this thing is going to be a surprise not a lot of people will see coming. I'm impressed by the feedback I've already heard from reliable sources who've put 50+ miles on them. I'm trying to keep my money in my pocket and not sell my TE630.

Donnells in Independence now has 2, one is a demo. Didn't think to bring a helmet or I'd be making a ride report. Bart says they're looking to have some factory accessories by some time in Nov. Luggage, skid plate, shorty wind screen. May offer a package. Asked about the $13000 computer tuner dealy. Donnells is getting one in. They're a good shop, wont carry a bike they can't service. I believe it is a requirement to have one if a shop is to carry the bike.
