    I'm going to try and sell the Sargeant seat and Givi luggage, but the rest I'll just see if someone can haul it away. It's still got a Magura Hymec clutch, Koso heated grips, Bark Busters and some other things on it that are actually worth money.

    I think you said it earlier but I forget. How much is a new engine? You have already done half of the work!

    I had a Husqvarna lawn mower a few years ago, but it was all orange. Wonder if they did this color combo to try and differentiate from KTM.

    Weird. You’d think any reasonable person would realize that you know best for YOUR bike. :ballchain::facepalm:

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    The Husky is a KTM or the other way around if you wanna look at it that way.
    Difference being the styling and some suspension ques. It has been stated and known by many that the Husky is what you graduate to after you hit 35-40 years old. It’s kinda a right of passage if you will.

    That being said, Husky started long ago making chainsaws. Their case covers were orange, so you could find them in on the job site, as well as safety orange means business lol.

    But there is your answer. I am sure you could find a modded white Husky mower made by a purest :)

    Who’s out riding today? My head is better so I can get my helmet on again :) I am gonna get out on the 500 and roast some FSR next to me.

    Thinking really hard on getting a SM or some sort. I had some Warp Wheels but I sold them to a buddy like an idiot. I am gonna have to buy a SM already setup, cause every time I buy an enduro I just keep using it in the woods.

    The blue/yellow colors were pre-KTM but interesting that the small equipment is orange. I have a Husky weed wacker and blower both 12 years old at least that are still running awesome

    That’s good you’re feeling better and you should definitely get a supermoto. I’m gonna take the 701 out a little later, bout to throw some lights up on the house

    Will do. I will ride the 500 and 250 today. It’s rainy, so I am gonna stick to the dirt/gravel roads. That’s the beauty of these kinda bikes… shitty weather, just go to where the shitty weather makes it more fun.
    I am glad I live in such a remote area. When the weather is like this no one is out, and I have a stretch right next to my house I can spend a lot of time in 4th/5th gear…which on the 500 is smoking!

    Going to head out soon on the '13. Just got done setting all suspension settings to the "as delivered" specs and set tire pressures to my normals. Managed to get a RAM ball mounted for my phone. Replace top triple clamp nut with a Techmount unit with Zumo XT mounting plate for my Garmin, still need a power cable and mount. Clearwater Darla lights arrived this morning but they're going to wait a little.
    Installed a StartX remote start in the Tacoma this morning.
    Busy day now some relaxing.

    Hey buddy, how you like that remote start. I need to install something in my rigs now that we are living in an area that gets cold as hell!

    Beyond testing it to make sure it works I haven't given it any real use yet. Install took all of about 45 minutes this morning and part of that was making myself a second cup of tea and peeing out the first cup from before I started. LOL. Nice unit, all plug and play. Installation video on YouTube was perfect. It takes a little longer to actually start than I expected, you push the lock button on the fob 3 times and then it will start. It works great but takes like 30 seconds to 1 minute to act. First time I thought maybe the unit was defective but that's just how it works. I'd say so far that I would recommend it. Coworker installed one last year in his F-150 and he's tickled with it.

    Jeez. Even the Lego version is overpriced.
