In this episode, I'm joined by Oscar and Lurch. We talk about dirt, adventure bike riding, and Oscar's new Husqvarna FE450. We love our touring bikes, but we've gotten into dirt and adventure riding over the last few years. Oscar has a Kawasaki KLR650 in edition to his Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra.
Oscar has been wanting a lighter bike that is more dirt oriented so he can get into places that are difficult to get a KLR650 into. The search for this bike was a long journey. Oscar did a lot of research and ultimately landed on the Husqvarna FE450.
Oscar explains why he chose the Husqvarna FE450. If you're looking for a dirtbike, maybe it's the one for you.
The weight of the bike was important to Oscar. The Husqvarna came in at 250 pounds. A lot of the other bikes of the same size were 50 to even 100 pounds heavier. The Yamaha WR450F was a front-runner, but Oscar was unable to find one at a reasonable price. The new ones are hard to come by and the price is too high for the used ones.
Oscar, Lurch, Big Daddy, and I will be attending the Tourtech Rally in Plain, Washington. Plain is near Leavenworth. The rally is June 22-25, 2023. We hope to see you there! Of course, we'll be filming the whole trip. Keep an eye out on our YouTube Channel for the video.
