    I also looked at that one briefly.

    Too cold, too much snow...seems like everyone is internet shopping.

    If I actually hit the 'Buy' button for everything that's in my shopping cart at DualSportPlus, I think it was going to be over $3k. :eek1

    Oh, I'm Phil by the way...not sure if just anyone from Ottawa can drop in on this thread?

    I assume you can because you are from Ottawa. I, on the other hand, am not.
    But i never let common sense or good judgement rule up to this point in my life so......

    Having bought a bike in Ottawa makes you an Honorary Ottawan, for better or for worse, Dave.

    :evil

    But I was being semi-serious with my suggestion. When I lent my DR to Skibum for the 2011 Roaming Rally he flew up on his miles.

    I take it you don't have any, though?

    As already whispered BMW Motorrad sells its subsidiary Husqvarna Motorcycles, KTM but not to the personal business of its CEO Stefan Pierer called Pierer Industries AG. The consequences for Pierers role as CEO of KTM is still unclear and will in the next six time be sought out. It is obvious that the European competition authorities to interfere with this, but also the chance that Pierer abundantly present his position at KTM will resign. For some time Pierer still the CEO of the Austrian motorcycle company, but a large part of the shares therein are sold to the Indian motorcycle giant Bajaj. Purchasing Husqvarna Pierer would potentially enable again completely with a clean slate to start again.

    There will be viewed in the coming months if there is any form of cooperation between KTM and Husqvarna is possible, there is at least already a new model announced at the EICMA 2013 already will be shown

    This morning we reported that KTM is not in the market to buy Husqvarna, this would also not very logical step. For BMW ensures the sale of Husqvarna for substantially losing face. The German company pumped millions into the Italian Husqvarna, but could never make a success of.

    The following chart is from Cross Industries Ltd, the company which Bajaj for almost half owner. It now owns Husqvarna said Pierer Industries AG makes no part of it.

    Nice to see how much snow has melted since yesterday. Hoping for an early spring.
