    Hard to believe I have been here 5 years, or that I have owned my Terra for 5 years. I have enjoyed all you folks very much, even those who moved on to greener pastures.

    While I may not post up alot anymore, I do still have my Terra, and a Strada which I purchased used. Both bike are fine machines.

    This is my Terra 5 years later. I was out getting coffee at my favorite place. 120 mile round trip if I stick to the tar. Some of the best coffee in the souther part of Arizona.

    Over the years other fixes and mods have been talked about and implemented. It sure is fun watching everybody customize their bikes. I want to thank all for this journey. Still a great community even though some old timers have moved on.

    So when and where is the Husqvarna TR650 Rally/reunion?

    Hey Dave. I recently put a 1.75" Kouba Link on my bike and it is a little too low now for my tastes. Are you interested in trading your 1" for my 1.75"?

    +1 . 5.5 years for me, since i bought my Terra, and this forum has been an invaluable resource to share good and bad news and improvements and fixes for the bike. Who know's where we'd all be without this shared knowledge and access to some very very clever people who have shared their experience and expertise.

    Hi all, has anyone tried the TR650 Strada front mud guard on a terra, I much prefer the look and I think it would be more effective for Adventure/ Enduro trips.

    Yes, it works. Just need some spacers to raise the fender a little bit so it clears the 21in tyre enough in muddy conditions. I used a couple of pieces of flat mild steel bar.

    Five years with the TR650 and my wife surprised me with a new KTM 1290 Super Adventure S for Father's Day! It may be that she just had her eyes on the Terra...?

    7 years, 85k klicks and signing out, My Terra's gone to a new home.
    All in all it was a great ride. Never leaving me stranded. The TR's have a history and I'm glad to be a small part of it, thanks to everyone here. Cheers.

    Yep 6 years for me . Still love the ol'gal.
    Numerous additions that all would understand except its getting time to spend $ on suspension...
    Have Power Commander and Autotune..Before the upgrade .My toys...Runs leanish on the tar and with a flip of the switch richer and cooler through the crap in the heat of Oz
    Been to the middle of no where places.. I did ,after being exhausted one trip, just turn bike of by flipping the stand down and without knowing ran the battery flat (Mea Culpia Idiot!)..No hills no people ,no solar mats..Just me and my worries went to bed that night after 2 decent black russians..Necessity ..always packed first.
    Anyhows the battery pack got things started in the morning..I kissed it and it has been my bestie ever since.
    I am going to have this bike till either she or I stop......

    I feel the same way, vodka. This is me test-riding MotoXotica's first Terra 650 in October 2012...

    And this is me the day I picked mine up at MotoXotica on December 11, 2012. Look closely and you will see Coffee's 650 in the background. He picked his up on the same day. They are both in my garage right now, and I don't foresee selling them any time soon!

    Almost 8 years on and a lot of dirty miles later, she ain't quite as pretty as she used to be. She's a lot more experienced and useful now, though :)
