Gorgeous Husqvarna Vintage MX’r

And I spy Metro Racing stickers on there so Donzilla must have had a hand in this beauty. Oh and by the way stay tuned for my first ever product review! Don sent me some fantastic swag that I’ll be giving a look-see at in a day or so. Top Notch all the way. Thanks Much!

Ha! I knew it. From the comments:
Yes I did have something to do with that Husky! I did the paint work on it for a friend, Jim Case. It was at our booth at Unidilla MX a few years ago. Look close at the top of the tank. Malcolm Smith signed it at Mid Ohio.


Gorgeous work!

Death Valley Dualsport Wanderlust…

Mike Lewis over on ADV rider was kind enough to let me post this great panorama of shot from Death Valley.

He sent a message along:

It was taken in Feb 2010 and is along the Wildrose Cnayon road in Death Valley National Park. It was my first trip there and spent most of the trip riding with a group of Ural sidecar riders that gather there every winter for offroad riding adventures. I also meet them in Moab each year in April. Also last year my wife flew down to Sedona AZ and we toured our way through the national parks back to the camper in Moab (on our tour bike).

I have a TE610 (in the picture) and a TE450 for single track riding. I like to load up the camper and head out to great DS ridng places for a few days at a time, including many Dual Sports Ride events through the greater Pacific Northwest. I keep a fairly full riding schedule each year. Besides Moab this year, I plan to spend a few weeks in Idaho and Western Colorado where I will meet a couple of the Moab riding buddies that live in Colorado and ride with them in their backyard.

I’ll come right out and say it.  I’m so freaking jealous of what you guys have available to you out west.  Florida is great but for trail riding, unless you like riding narrow trails with soft sand, it can get annoying.

Reader submittal. Husqvarna Desert Racer!

Bob Close from the Penton Owners Group sent me a link recently to a site I’d never heard of called and some pics of this amazing Husqvarna Baha Racer.  Please do yourself a favor and click the link over to this fantastic site and check see all the pictures and read the story of this bike.  This isn’t a trailer queen.  It’s going to be raced in the 2010 Baha 500.  And while you’re over there please check out all their restoration projects.  Really really amazing stuff.  If you’re a fan of these old dirtbikes (or just curious) you should defilnately pay a visit to the Gents over on the Penton Owners Group.  I sneak over there and peek in on them every once in a while and I’m definately getting the bug.
Thanks again for the link Bob.  Much appreciated.
