Wow, that is a super hot bike. I always liked the TC's. Just so you know, all of the factory race husky's are based on the TC version.

Wait what, thats it. Someone buy my 04 with only the dirt wheels. I pony up the extra money for this pimp bike.

Husky is the value winner among the Euro SMR/MX bikes. KTM lost their freaking mind with pricing on the 09s.

When/if I buy a new SM, it'll likely be a Swedish/Italian/German one. I want an SMRR. Super

Off topic but I really don't care, Rob you guys got any Black Right side fork guards for a 2007 Husky laying around. I need one but have been too lazy to order it. You gonna be at the shop later? I'll give you a call if you are.

Nah, I'm back down in Bloomington. Spent all weekend moving. I hate moving. Otherwise, I'd have been up at the sbker2 race.

Dunno if there are any laying around up there. Maybe? The Husky warehouse move is complete, and BMW has the new parts ordering site up and running, so if it needs to be ordered it shouldn't be too bad.

My procrastination pays off again. I'll just order it in the winter. Thanks for nothing

They haven't released much info yet but the 09 frame is supposed to be about 2 pounds lighter than 08.
Also, the new TC250 weights only 200 pounds. That's insane
