I Ride: Husaberg 400 FE
mix of ideas

Hi Taffy. That looks like a left over Husqvarna suspension test bed. Its got the 250 WR of about 1980 and the conical brakes, rear sprocket and long forks from the XC line. That was when too many felt Husky ought to have a mono shock like the rest of the world. Might even be the rear of a Yamaha IT, made to fit. The clear view of history isn`t clear if that was the right path. The hearty Viking boy laughing below, stuck on the then new Husaberg body parts, in order to baffle all who gazed on it. Must be an almost warm frigid June day in Northern Sweden, as it isn`t dark and ice encrusted. Actually, he is probably a nuclear physicist, who soon became the chief engineer at Husaberg. He and half a dozen like him enjoyed planning meetings at the top of their lungs, while shaking beer bottles at each other. I bet the conference room table was made of dozens of crushed trophies, as Husqvarna made a point of never resting on their laurels. Tally ho,L

It nearly looks as if there should be an 'Excaliburesque' sword penetrated inside some granite or something underneath this impressive monument. Made of the finest Swedish steel naturally.....

not rocket science to a Swede but I was just making sure that you are all alive and kicking you screaming Swedes!!!!

It was my first trip to Sweden since 1975. The only thing black then was the occasional car.................................

anyone guess the; "WHY?"

sure has changed.

basically, I have two extra long wheel base vans going to Laxa. 3 drivers.

it is 1,150 miles or 1,800km EACH WAY!!!!

I now have total, total, TOTAL respect for Petr and ????? who came to force rides 3 & 4 and said that they did 2,000km (because they went to Wales) each way.

I will call this 'Petr's run' in memory of a Swedish Husaberg nut, a family man and a great guy that died at what? 48 years old and left a wife and two children?

when we get to Laxa, we will help move the parts but it will provide me with a chance to makse sure i get what I paid for.... never can trust these sneeky Swede's.........LOL!!!
