    I'm now considering selling my AT for this bike as I think this is what I really wanted in the first place. I Love my AT but I spend much more time offroad than on and this might just be a better option I'll wait and see how Everyone goes with them this year and I might trade up especially if I can get 200mi out of a decent 4gal tank that's if someone makes one.

    Does this bike have a Cush hub?
    Any pictures of the subframe?
    Some of details on this bike are making it look like a good light weight ADV candidate.

    I’m gonna have to take a look at this bike at the dealer...
    Looks like the 500/501 has competition.

    No cush hub. Rubber damped steel rear sprocket. Not sure if the clutch hub has rubber dampers on it.

    what's a "husky beta"? Is that like a fat fish? BTW, they have this new invention for the English language. It's called a "period". Check it out, it's like really gnarly or like whatever. You know? Whatever

    Absolutely, i didn’t know if I was going to break it. So I brought tools and crap to adjust stuff.
    Also since my prostate has been removed these skinny little hard seats play a number on my ass.
