    Most here probably wont have heard of them but I reckon the Cunningham brothers, Jamie and Ian (RIP). They were getting round in the 90's and early 2000's. They were big lads who could handle their 610s like mini bikes. To put this in perspective a little in those times being a paid enduro rider in Australia was extremely rare, even national champs worked a day job and raced for the love of the sport. So to hold down a job, win national and state titles plus represent Aussie at the ISDE numerous times gets my respect.

    Yes I the quality of the extras just make it so easy to ride,not that I have ever ridden a standed. Or any other new husk, or 4banger. So in my mind I carnt compare to anything I have ridden,there mite be one a wr200 Yamaha but the suspension on the te is a lot better eventhow I might be alittle heavey for the meo but it handles ok so far.Having 13/40 gearing makes the bike more enjoyable aswell yes it does make you use the clutch a little more in the tight but it is more enjoyable once you get to 3rd and 4th and so on.For the bike you get there should be more of them around.I carnt wait when or if Husqvarna makes a replica Dakar te449 that would be good,come on Husqvarna .

    How about 2001 Houston 125 SX winner, Travis Preston. The last dude to put a Husqvarna on the podium in a sx or mx race! Jeesh, those were the days, when our beloved brand was competiting in top level mx and sx.

    Funny story behind this shirt. Apparently Alexander had never signed a shirt,poster, etc. before and he was stretching it back and forth trying to sign. For Malcolm its second nature, swatch swatch and he was done. I never laughed so hard and Red's was like just sign the damn thing! Haha. But I'm glad I got the first one.

    I’m way late on this discussion, my favorites would be Heikki Mikkola for FIM GP’s, and being from Michigan its Dick Burleson for enduro and Mike Hartwig for motocross.

    I can't believe Arne Kring hasn't been mentioned... my favorite rider of the Swedish invasion. He was leading the '70 MXGP 500s until he broke his back. Finished 2nd to Bengt still; recovered but never was quite the same. Retired in 74 or 75. From 1968 to 1972 this was my guy.

    Always dug his style.

    Here he is with Torsten and Bengt. Not sure what's up with the Jaak Van Velthoven hat.
