Fellow Member,

Your 500 is an antique - Not sure if anyone has told you but you are the recipient of the "New Guy In May" award and seeing as we always take care of our own. you are lucky enough to be granted this once in a life time opportunity to trade that bike in from one of our "Gift Pools" - At the moment all that is available is a heavily modified 2011 Husqvarna SMS630 - This beauty comes with Cool Stickers and a luggage rack w/Soft Tail Bag - She is putting down over 60 RWHP and is signed by the owner - I know, too good to be true, right? - WRONG - Congratulations

For your winning, all that is required is to drop off your 500 (you are stepping up here to a 600, exciting isn't it?) to our Motorcade Pool located in the heart of the Gold Coast in Chicago where you will be fortunate enough to ride home this one of a kind Husqvarna

Please bring all the necessary paperwork (title and a photocopy of your DL) to claim your prize and rest assured, your old 500 will be WELL taken care of

We are looking forward to your arrival

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
