vast bike show

Hello Burgers! Please note the Vancouver MC show is on soon. Jan 20 to 22 at Tradex complex in Abbotsford BC. All the makes and parts companies do displays. Lots of clubs and specialists as well. We crawled all over the Husaberg stand at this show for years. Lots of discounted new riding gear from a few of the usual suspects. Hope to see you there, L.

Bergers please Its not a meal...
The meaning of Husaberg is freely translated to english as 'House at Neut/Mountain'
Hus = House
A = At
Berg = Neut or small mountain

Reason it came about was when husqvarna was sold the old husky crew staid and started their own company(Husaberg), and Huskvarna is the town in sweden where Husqvarna was established, and it lies on a Hill/Neut overlooking the beautiful wast lake called všnern, Swedens biggest lake.
Thanks from plumbbob, Rainerio and Damo W

Oh are you sure Tomtom? I'm quite sure the name comes from "Husabergudde" where they had the first small facility?

should have known

Hello Tom and Jon! Thank you for your insightful responses. The foodstuff reference was a play on the noble name of Husaberg. It won`t happen again. For awhile. To settle your fears, there has been a Swedish bike around here some of the time since 1980. That one was none other than Husqvarna`s 1979 factory open class motorcross bike for Canada, with some showings into the USA. It wound up 6th in the national standings. It had Ohlins front and back, a big Bing carb, some kind of hand-made exhaust. Rims, shocks, forks, bars and triple clamps were anodized gold. The compression was so high, forget hot kick starting. Some weight loss work had been done as well. I found it in a busy local Yamaha/ Husqvarna shop. Only had to pay $1000 to bring it home. Still in great condition, it took little work to start ripping around the farm . The black and polished tank looked stock, as did the silver frame, if you ignored the obvious hand welded everything. That was my first dirt bike so it was a bit much to learn on. It still looked better than new after 3 years and many adventures. I stupidly sold it to a friend. Bet it could get 25 thou these days. Good luck all, L.
