    My ‘81 Husqvarna 250cr, my ‘79 Husqvarna 250 or, 78/79 Husqvarna 390cr, 83 Husqvarna 250wr, 83 Husqvarna 430wr, 85 Husqvarna 400 wrx was the perfect assortment of rides.

    I found the higher foam of the early seats rode better. But I could ride any of them.

    To actually have ridden a Swedish Husky in calendar year 2018 I had to get busy. I know I started a two stroke this summer but did not ride it due to where I was. It was rather frustrating first the carb flooded, tapping the float bowl and removing the plug for while got it going. Then I had the gas off and these are frustrating to re start when you run out, kind of amazing how far it went though. Then it just flamed out which I do not recall it doing. That meant a walk, a rescue vehicle, oxy natural gas treatment to the plug as I did not have another and fresh gasoline. It then behaved like expected for the rest of the day. kick platform.jpg oil from airbox.jpg rescue trailer.jpg seat patch.jpg

    I got this bike when it was 9 years old and was able to get a plate.

    If a black dog pisses on your tire is it good or bad luck? :cheers:

    The black dog is a female so it does not piss on tires. There is a beagle around that does though. I doubt it is good luck, probably kind of corrosive to the rim be it alloy or steel.

    Swedish alloy can stand a bit of piss, Japanese alloy can't even stand a bit of damp!
