    New Huskys should be rolling in to SP this month. The new 650 Terra looks like an interesting dual sport ride and for not so much money...

    Interesting with SP not being that far from Tasky's. Is the Husky market big enough to warrant another dealer?

    The husky dealer here decided not to carry the TR650. They said they would have to sell ten of them to pay for the new tools. I have really been thinking about getting one but I guess I will have wait to till they start showing up used with some farkles.

    We'll see. Ride Motorsports in Woodinville has the Husky line, too. I like dealing with Jeff. I see he's adding some more lines too, including Rokon and Sherco. Right now Husky dealers seem to outnumber KTM dealers in my neck of the woods.

    Jason Dahners is the Husky rep and he's a pro with a great reputation; that's a good part of why we see more presence in this area. The 650 line looks good with more models likely. The 900 platform (not yet here) shows promise as well. I'm hoping for a serious adventure bike with that powerplant.

    I rode the 650 Terra at the Husky demo days.
    In my opinion the biggest disapointment is the 5 speed transmission.
    I told Jason to have them ride the KTM 530 and 500 - that's what a "dual sport" transmission should be like. :D
