Husqvarna 610

I got to ride this little dream today!



It was raining and nasty out, but since the bike was brand new... it was screaming to be ridden. Randy took off on it with me in tow on the Tiger. We ran for about 10 miles and to my surprise, Randy hops off the bike and tells me to take it..... it is less than broken in... First day owned... raining... new tires... cold.... etc

Did I hesitate? Nope. Hopped on and we are off!
Wheelies in the rain are fun!
Never pushed it, but played with the power band and handling a little bit. This thing is uber lite and pulls easily in the rain up into 79+ mph. I can believe this thing could fill a spot in my garage. I do not see riding it longer than an hour or so at a time... but what a fun filled hour.

Impressions...
Looks excellent!
Uber Lite!
Put the fun back into motorcycling. (less practicle than tiger = fun)
Great all arounder for short runs.

I pull off 5-6 hour rides on mine. It really is a ton of fun, one of the best bikes I've ever had!

Randy likes younger guys!!!

We have both been members of ROGUE for a long while. He moved to Virginia Beach and I jumped at the opportunity to show him around and make him feel welcome to the area.

Plus, if I am lucky, I will get him to remodel my house for le$$!!! lol

Gotcha........

I've known Randy for quite afew years from the XX forum.

I saw the 610 post and Virginia Beach and it had to be more than a coincidence.

Tell him Byrdman said he rides like a girl!
