    Does anyone have any experience with these bikes? I used to ride a Yamaha XT 350 that was bored and had different suspension. That was a fun bike but could lose a few more pounds and gain a few more horses.

    How does the Husky compare to the competition? I like the looks of the bike but I know looks are not everything. I want a bike that is more comfortable on the trails than the road. Here is a pic and link.

    I really would like a Yamaha WR450F converted to dual sport but from what I understand NY won't let people convert dirtbikes.

    I am looking at an old photo of my WR 250. It was a tank, when Husky's were still made in Sweden. That bike would climb any hill, all you had to do was hang on. It was a 2 stroke which I normally despise, but on this bike it just flat worked.
    My guess is a 610 is going to be very heavy for riding in the woods or tight trails. Remember occasionally you will have to pick it up, or get out from underneath it.

    Boy they sure don't look like the old Husky. I had a 250 MX but that was when I was a young lad.
