Like Buttah Baybee, Like BUTTAH

The 630 is home - Will get pics up tomorrow as I barely have time to post this

First, thanks to Stanimal for the VW Van adventure down and back - Great bike hauler

So, it is a 2011 Husky SMS630 with the half Leo V System, PC 5 and Auto Tune - ASV Levers, Luggage Rack, Sticker of Curley from the 3 Stooges and Skull and Crossbones Stem Covers - This owner had funny taste

I added Moto-Science Mirrors and the Hyde Skid Plate, both in Black and bought the soft bag that goes with the rack and am done - Less than 600 miles on it so it is still breaking in but already pulls nice in 1-3 and the exhaust has the inserts still in so it is pretty quiet - Not sure if I want them out as I remember the 690 and that bike was/is LOUD

Stopped at Stan's shop to print off my insurance card that I had State Farm email me (Thx Mr. Wolf) and pulled the reflectors off, added Stan's "License Applied For" plate from MCC so wit the Bill of Sale and Insurance, I would be somewhat okay - Borrowed a Helmet and Gloves and rolled down Sheridan back to the City

Once this Motor breaks in, she will be NIIIIIICE - Amazaed at how smooth it is

Pics tomorrow

Thanks again Stan

How is it at highway speed? Is it something that would be comfortable for a road trip?

Btw.....I used to secretly lust over your KTM! Lol

Both of your old KTM were keepers. Let us know how it is at highway speeds. Everyone here in Florida drives 70+. I had the cruise set at 85 (in a 70), and was being passed.

Thx D - I am actually really digging this scoot - I know I am old when the bike is quiet and I am happy about it - My old 690 was SOOOOO fucking loud but wicked sounding - Something tells me that this thing would sound the same

With the Auto Tune, the bike will adjust itself if I remove the inserts so I might just try it for a day or so to see how it sounds and performs

I don't think it will be as fast as the 690 as it is only a 600cc vs a 650 of the KTM but it is still fun - Smoother too - You can tell Beemer added their touch to this bike - I am on the fence about going 42 in the back - Stock it is TOO tall with the 38 - It has a 40 on there now but a lot of guys seem to go 42 - Won't fuck with the front but may do the back - We'll see how it rips after it breaks in

42 would also require a 520 chain (i think)

Kinda funny what this guy did - Bought it to ride to work and back and with his wife on her quad on the trails - Had a dirt set up too that I passed on - Lives in McHenry and went to Hall's for his service and to buy the bike - Basically rolled 1st gear on the trails with his wife so after putting all the mods on it that he did, he traded it in on a Quad and now cages it to work

He also had a WICKED cool "Metal Mulisha" sticker on the back under the luggage rack - Hmmm, MM on the back and Curley on the front????

Never in a million years would I have thought to put a luggage rack on it but I am kinda glad its there - Added this bag and it is a pretty cool set up - The bag is big enough to hold a lid and has easy access compartments on the side and top too

Thx Bro - I like the mirrors and they actually work well - Minimal vibration and function well - I looked at a few Bar End options (thread on Cafe Husky had a few diff ones and reviews of) but like the looks of these things and enjoy the functionality too - The KTM stockers were shit and the Husky stockers were no different - Great view of your elbows

These remind me of wasp tentacles in a way - I dig 'em

I bunged a tail bag on the grab rails once with my old scoot - Worked perfect

Used my old tank bag that i think I gave to someone when I had the SD as that tank was placsic

If ya wanna go all "Mfg Branded" - Basically, any tail bag will work with the grab rails and a bunged cord

I've been eyeing that second bag, but it's expensive with the KTM bracket. I'm trying to see if I can make a bracket. I don't want to bungee cord a bag to the rails, I prefer something hard mounted.
