Having decided I wasn't competent enough to lug a 150kg+ 690 enduro along the tricky stuff, this '15 Husky FE450 has parked itself in my bike shed.
Many thanks to Tony Lacey for the suggestion - a much more suitable bike than a revvy 350.
500's were like rocking horse pooh Pete and probably a tad over the top.

690 is having Mitas E07's fitted as a 90% road bike but allowing for the odd dry gravel track foray in the summer.

Tart's KTM :lol:
My wife prefers the Husky colours to orange so that helps. Not that any of my KTMs have been full orange.
