  1. Sorry if you have read this on other forums (or even within this one) but I am looking for as much input as possible. I am really struggling with my next purchase. I currently have a KLR650 for mild (gravel roads, etc) Dual sport rides. l have a KDX 220r for single track off-road riding with other non-street legal buddies. I am looking for a bike that could be used in both situations either as a new primary bike for me or as a loaner if a non-bike owning friend wants to try out our sport. Husky: Pros: Great fit and finish, great single track bike, more power than the KLX, less weight. Cons: Price ($6,400 plus tax), no local dealer that really focuses on Husky (Will have to go to Hall's in Springfield IL), new model that may have bugs to work out, may not fill the dual sport role very well. KLX Pros: I am a Kaw fan, Price, reliability of established Technology, great Kaw dealer near by, will dual sport very well. Cons: Weight (compared to Husky), under powered (compared to Husky), may not be the dirt machine that the Husky is, will have to spend $ to pipe and jet to get more out the bike. I am just having a hard time weighing the trade-offs.

    ONline Husky Dealer Who?

    If you live in MO and buy a bike in IL you do not pay IL sales tax. You pay MO sales tax when you title the bike here. Parts are another story. I would think that you would not pay sales tax on an on-line purchase but maybe MO and IL have an agreement or something. That would be new to me though.

    ONline Husky Dealer Who?

    I am currently talking to Halls about purchasing my first Husqvarna. Is it your experience that they will deliver the bike to St. Louis? Do they add a delivery charge for this? I was thinking I would have to drive up but maybe I could negotiate delivery.
