New site design phase 1

Posted by simon

Well, after quite a bit of work, I've finished the first part of the site redesign enough to make it the live version. I think it looks better, and is easier to use. In particular, I've tried to make the forum section a lot more like people are used to. (Although I've just realised there is no way to post new topics at the moment. Argh!)

There are still quite a few changes to be made, so keep an eye on the site, and you'll see the new updates coming through in the next couple of weeks.

A big thankyou to PsychoX for the new design (which we are not very close to yet ;-)

05 Husky - In the Garage!

Posted by simon

Well, after ordering two weeks ago, and waiting what seemed like eternity, I've now got a nice shiny new Husky TE510 in the Garage.

I previously wrote that I'd pretty much decided against it due to the height, but in the end, the 24 month warranty, and all the good reviews I've read convinced me to go with it.

Only had a 2 minute ride so far, so other than "wow, grunty", not much other feedback.

05 Husky - Nice

Posted by simon

Well, I finally got to go and checkout the new 05 Husky 450. Its a very sweet looking bike, and from everything I have read, I expected that to be the case.

A couple of people have mentioned its taller this year. Now i've not actually sat on last years model, but I thought that the WRF was tall.

So it was with some surprise that I realised that I can barely touch the ground on the Husky at all!!

MILLICENT TRIP by Chris Wellie.

I was really looking forward to the Millicent Trip as Marnie & I had taken the Friday off before to travel & the week off after to spend in Adelaide. This plan fell apart after all the other girls who go pulled the pin & obviously Marnie didn
