    Tire suggestions

    Another Parker DT fan here, but there is the new Bridgestone Battlecross E50 that I'd like to try. These are both DOT. For non DOT, Rocky Mountain has a new inexpensive hybrid knobby in their Tusk brand, called the Recon that looks pretty good.

    Hello whats new?

    I remember that guy.....
  4. Just remember that both the 243 out of Banning and the 74 out of Hemet are still not open to through traffic after last winter's storm damage. The only way in and out of town will be through Garner Valley.
  5. I'd be up for some day time miles.
  6. Love some twisties, but I have to work.

    1977 KZ750 - $20

    I think the first E model (4 cylinder) came out in 1980.

    KZ750 B.....you might have to pay somebody to take one of those away.😂 I had two of them, one new and one that I restored. I know a lot about them, and I have the gigantic valve shims that go in the engine.

    Real ID - Process

    Also, if you a gun owner or purchaser, you will no longer be able to make a legal firearm purchase in the state of California without a real ID.

    The Cafe is closed...Cafe Husky

    Holy cow ! Woodsie and I (okay, it was really Woodsie) got the site back on line, and we are working on a long term solution to keep it safe and running. Enjoy.
  13. Yes, that accident could have been avoided, if the rider had been doing the speed limit, or even anything near it, no matter if the driver of the car came to a complete stop or not before pulling out. Everyone who has a sport bike likes to test their machinery and capabilities....sometimes their judgement gets clouded in the heat of the fun and excitement, especially if they are young and new to "cafe" style riding with a shiny new machine that will no doubt exceed their talents and skills. Just last weekend, I was in a small group of sport bike riders, coming down Palomar mountain on the tight side....and a trio of riders were coming up from the other direction. As I prepared to enter the turn, I spied the leader of that other group at the apex, laid over so far that he had no more lean angle to use...and his tires were already on the center line paint. My eyes stayed locked onto him as he drifted into my lane and straight towards me. A sudden swerve to the right and hard on the brakes saved me from being taken out by him....but it could have gone very wrong. If it had been an automobile instead of me and my bike, I'm not so sure that a car could have missed him....and that would have been much much worse for that rider. N o need to test racing skills to the limit on a public road. There are nice safe race tracks for that.

    The Cafe is closed...Cafe Husky

    It was run by a couple of us administrators for the last two years. We would have gone on, or hoped to buy it from the last owner, but he went through some changes in his life that made him make some very bad, illogical decisions. There was no real reason that the website had to be terminated.....but donations that were received did not end up going to the upkeep of the site, nor did they go to any solution that would have helped the owner fix his problems.And that's all i have to say about that.
  15. For those of you who own any vintage of Husqvarna, and have enjoyed perusing the website known as Cafe Husky.com. Bad news....the website is offline, the domain expired. But there is a silver lining if you want to reminisce or do some research, because there is an archive site that has posts as late as summer of 2017. You can find the archives here:https://web.archive.org/web/20170608192844/http://www.cafehusky.com/
