My 570 smells good
I just took my 570 out of a shed - she's been taking a nap. Tbh, I a case of the blues so the bike sat
Blues was fixed by obtaining good, quality family life - which unfortunately took up all spare time! But now time and energy are here, and spring on top of that, so I took the 'Berg out!
And the Husaberg 570 smells good
! Much better than the DR-Z! A sweet, complex smell. Seems like high-performance fuel-injected dirtbikes have a certain fragrance – A cocktail of polish, combustion derivatives, and expensive synthetic lubrication. Seems like the fuel-injected ones smell better because the system is more sealed so it's not as rank a gasoline smell.
Not that I don't love the grotty 20th century musk of an old carbed dirtbike.
- Might also be that I've had so much fun on it that the Pavlovian response kicks in and makes me salivate when I smell the 'Berg.
Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about!
Well. I guess that's it for today's awkwardly sensual post!
