    OK Guys, it looks like I'm about to pull the trigger on a 2011 Husqvarna TC 449. Deal looks great, and I've got the registration/insurance issues handled. Any last min objections? I know nothing about these bikes, but it's a great deal.

    2011 was a transition year for Husqvarna. They were sold to BMW then shortly after to a company that also owned KTM. RockyMountain doesn't carry any OEM parts but MotoSport has full microfiche for that bike so you should be good, at least for a little while. Very little aftermarket support probably do to the transition but wear parts like brake pads, fork seals and air filters seem readily available. Don't expect much if you plan on selling down the road...that's why you're getting a great deal.

    As for performance and reliability, I've never owned one so can't say. But a great deal is a great deal and if the price was right I'd jump on it also.

    I’ll bring the Africa Twin if it’s not the only big bike!

    I’m tempted to bring out the AT too, but haven’t gotten out much this year so I may be a little rusty. Anyone do this run on a big bike and have any thoughts or comments?

    Hey Doc, I’ll probably be riding my Africa Twin. It got a little banged up at the PB500, but it’ll be fine by Nov. 26. If not, I’ll be on the XR650. I’ll look for you.

    So I'm now the proud owner of a Dirt Bike that doesn't weigh 600 lbs! Fabricated a kickstand, and tonight I'll add a headlight. Just need to sort out the registration and I'll be out with you guys in 2 weeks when I get back from AZ. Can't wait!

    A fast question, since I'm a big guys at 240 lbs, I pretty much always have to run a ton of pre-load on any motorcycle I buy. For our sandy riding out here, do I want the suspension on the stiff or soft side of the settings?

    Sunday it is. Atsion at 10:00 a.m., to let it warm up a little.
    I'll be on the little Honda. We could do some soft sand West of 206 if folks are interested.

    p.s., Don't do Facebook..... that's for girls and teenagers! :-)
