    I just picked up a 2010 WR300 from Outback MotoXtreme. I live in Calgary and belong to The Rocky Mountain Dirt Riders Association. There is only one other Husky around me as far as I can see, a 2008 or 2009 WR250. If you're ever in the Calgary area gimme a shout and I'll show you some of the trails I know!!

    Hey, I'm in Calgary as well. I have a 2007 TE510 but am not a member of that association. I haven't even been to Mclean Creek. I usually go to the Kookanusa area in BC. I want to try a bit of dual-sporting as well. The guy I bought this bike from has a TC250 and a 450 supermoto. There are a few Huskies around but not a lot.

    Nice vids. Are you a pro or is video your hobby? Great work. I can ride on that stuff but not sure I am quite as quick as you are with my beast.

    iMovie is pro. Technically, I'm a communications technology teacher, but that doesn't matter. I can't wait to see how I ride with my new WR300!

    I'd love to ride those trails this summer when I'm down south! Great videos! I rode Mclean Creek on my 2010 Wr 300 with the family before, but only a "family" pace. My kids are 8 and 10. Contact me if you ever come to the edmonton area, Ill show you areas I know. I also have Trelleborg tires so I can rip the winter too.

    Those videos are from McLean. Mostly from the 5km staging mark.

    Just a note; come check out AEIRA. There'll be a spiffy TC 450 ripping around at Chip lake, Telford lake (Leduc).
    I'm definately wanting to do more trails this summer!

    I just installed ice tires today and hope to hit Telford this year. I've been coming out taking pictures the last few years (Telford and Numb Bum).
    Check out albertadualsport.ca. Despite it's "dual-sport" name there is a lot of trail riding getting done on 450's, 530's, Husaberg's, etc.

    The guy who organizes the 24-Hour Numb Bumb (DR600/Dan) puts on a few Hoolie Rides each year that are a blast!

    Hi all from YYC.
    Not a trail rider, as I have a 510smr. But I'm glad I can join the conversation!
    We are a small ground of supermoto junkies that organize rides in the city. A little hooliganism fun.
    We find jumps and parking lots to goof off safely.
    If you care to join, let me know and I'll fire off emails to whomever wants to play.
    Here's a sample..

    Did you make it out to Telford Lk? We (our team) finally got prepped, and made Telford 2 on Feb 12. Despite a loose terminal on the coil resulting in loss of spark and 30 minutes to rip the bike apart and tie wrap the connector on, we finished in 2nd place! Bike under Novice. I will say i like how the 450 rips! Those Fournier tires are just amazing. It took me 2 45 minute sessions to get the hang of using them, then i was just 30 seconds off the 1st place team.
    Its a shame this season turned out so poorly and still no word on Feb 26th race.

    I made it out to both Telford races ... without a bike. What was your plate number? I most likely have a bunch of pictures.

    The Fournier tires are pretty crazy. Our 2012 Numb Bum bike had a set on ... destroyed by the time the sun came up though.

    We were #82 this year. Only made it out to the one race, where we got 2nd in Novice Over (400 cc).
    I was told and found out that the Fourniers behave much like pavement tires; full blast to the corner, brake hard, and trail brake thru the apex. I loved them. Ours are still new :)
    I heard the numb bum track deteriorated badly throughout the night. Shame it took the tires with it.
