You should send that video to the suites in Munich.

Maybe they will realise why a Husky should not be made into a "street bike based on fun" or simply a rebadged X-Challenge!
Husqvarna '09 610TE - Great Bike!

I just finished a SciFi novel Extinction: Task Team, download the preview.

Looks and sounds like the 250 WR enduro version with the mudguard and lights --- with the bigger fly-wheel --gives great traction and momentum.

OK Doubledude...before you fall asleep ;)
Here is some progress:

- Frame and bottom fork tubes bead blasted and powder coated
- Triple clamps bead blasted and spray painted and new head bearings installed
- forks completely rebuilt
- New "vintage style" Renthal handle bars installed

Tank is currently getting a dent-free-treatment and should be back on Monday.
Busy rebuilding the Íhlins shocks and getting the rims re-anodised (after pressing out some dents)
I have ordered parts from the UK worth 2000 Pounds that should (hopefully) arrive soon.

@ Sidetrack: I hope you don't mind that I am hi-jacking your thread... :)

Sounds very much like a big bore , what about the WR400/430 ?
