Blog: May 30. Been riding the new Husky 701 Enduro

This week I spent a couple of days on the 2016 Husqvarna 701 enduro, and it’s a very nice bit of gear. It won’t appeal to everyone, but those looking for a good performance option in a bike that feels like a dirt bike will love it. It’s light, slim and has 67 horsepower in street trim, so it’s a bit of stomper compared to most dualsporters these days. Last time I pushed in front…

Blog: May 2. An oldie but a goodie.

I’ve nothing much to report again this week. It’s approaching my busiest time at work so I haven’t been away from my desk. No riding. No photography. Nothin’. I was sifting through some images for work and I stumbled across this one from about six weeks ago… That’s not me in the picture of course – I shot the image.
