I have been hesitant to start this report as the Husky has only been test ridden on pavement at the dealers----but after looking it over there is a lot to say about the bike---most things better, a couple worse and some really neat stuff. And yes---all the snow and ice is my fault--I'm so sorry--the purchase of this bike has reversed "Global Warming". And yes there is much more to come. Edit---12-27-12. The Husky is long gone--it served me well---sold it to FishFund and he rode it thru Mexico to South America---what a read that was. Heck that bike may be at the bottom of a snake infested alligator swamp for all I know. Then it went thru another owner or two---and as of this day of 12-27-12 is still running and for sale on AdvRider.
