Was shopping for new bike and test rode a Husky FE501. Holy shit! My hands were numb after five minutes. Ended up buying KTM SXF 450.

BeIN Sport had an interesting graphic. It took the last six race points from 2016 and this year's points and added them up. Over an 18 race season spanning the last six races from the previous year, Dovi would have been champion. To bad that's not how it works for Dovi, but still kinda cool.

I kinda like that little extra poke of the 501. Had an exc 450 for about 6 months then went back to a 525 (501 nowadays). Yeah you can feel each combustion stroke more but at my age less input effort to keep up is handy.
Had an sx350 for a few months found that dismal.
The Husaberg 570 remains the pinnacle for me .... but they stopped making them in favour of the 501.

The KTM does the job ok for me. Now it's got a titanium pipe and an assortment of tweaks (on the dyno at present). It's my first ever non Jap bike. Takes getting used to - what with the real light flywheel and virtually no engine braking. Very two-stroke-ish. Mine's set up as a supermoto. A total piss on back roads.
