TE 449 is a Husqvarna,


I love it but my range is really limited with the unconventional tank they use (under frame) I have a .8 gallon reserve tank so that gets me 90 miles tops.

Can you change me to driving in a full size pickup with small trailer please, Im number 103 on list.

Still think the Tiger is the one to bring?

If the Husky is not street legal, you'll be very limited on where you can ride, and who you will ride with....

Almost all of the NooB rides are in the National Park and BIKES MUST BE STREET LEGAL !


Regarding fuel.. If you want to go to the hot springs ( a nice challenging ride for NooBs) it is 140 miles round trip from PSR... A Tiger is a good choice for this ride. Carrying fuel can be a challenge, but suggestions on how will be forthcoming.

Hey, I resemble that remark. I am dumb enough to give it a try. Something tells me it will be a long day!

I'm good as all the TE models are plated.
My reserve tank sits on the back fender but there is no way I can do 140.
I see a lot of small bikes on the sign up list and few big bikes. Ill bring the Tiger for sure to get that ratio up, its set up with knobs already. Just don't want to make the Husky jealous

I have a set of Pirelli MT21. I really don't want to get new tires yet.
