    Ever ride some early 80's Husky 500's Orange? My 90 KX500 was a Bently compared to the 83' Husky 500CR I rode. Hands went numb within seconds.

The failure was my fault for being lean on the main and turning the bike over to a 19 year-old 'A' guy on a grass track. Predictable outcome.
    Cool good to hear it`s not going to be costly.

    Senility is setting in. You should be stripped of all motorized equipment for your own safety. I can be up there tomorrow to pick up the Maico. I'm here for you!
