    Much of the part that goes through Massachusetts is stuff I used to use when putting on my former club's Adventure ride. The Berkshire Big Adventure
    I can't believe I've been gone from that area for over 4 years already

    @Florida Lime, He likes the blue one. They had a Steve Mcqueen special green one but it didn't last long.

    I’d do the green one if they did the fenders in matte green as well.

    Fer shure, this is for Daph and I to jam Martha with you. It's tight and not super comfortable on the DR, but doable as you know.

    That's what I'm saying, whatever the best deal is to me when it's time to pull out the cash.

    Only the special editions like the McQueen or Bond XE get the matching fenders. :(

    Took the Husaberg out today for a little spin around the Cherohala area. I didn't want to take the 1200XE to tease @CheapB or @JRowland , but a little birdie told they'd be able to buy one if they didn't have such extravagant homes.

    As I pulled up to my house, I was thinking they should do like I did, and buy something more modest. :nod

    You know his name is Cheap, right? He’s got like 8-9 kids so he has to be frugal.

    You must have the 1200 stationed in the front room. Or possibly by the Ol Still for a quick getaway!! :photog:photog
