Ever since I first heard about the Husky TE310, I knew I wanted to own one. Currently, I own and ride a Honda CRF230F and a Honda CRF250X on trails and a Husqvarna TE610 on dirt roads and easy trails. I use the 230F as a chainsaw bike, hauling a chainsaw around the trails in the spring and early summer, clearing trails and getting ready for the riding season. My 250X has a Thumper Racing 270 big-bore kit installed and the bike is my main trail bike. The 270 kit gave the 250X a much better mid-range pull and the bike does very well on the trails here in the central Colorado Rocky Mountains. But I have always thought that a 300 or 325cc 4-stroke would be a better size bike for this area. With the TE310 (at 300cc), I'll get a chance to see if my supposition is right. The 6-speed gearbox and fuel injection make the TE310 one of the most technically advanced trail bikes that I will ever have ridden and owned. I can't wait.
Recently on Thumpertalk, Dagwood_55 asked:
After break-in, I plan a shakedown ride from Salida to Red Canon Park/Canon City and return in early March. This will be dirt roads and a few highway sections.
Some events I'm planning to ride in '09 are:
Before buying the TE310, I was going to have to ride my TE610 or CRF230F on these rides, but I think the TE310 will be more suitable and a lot more fun.
See my Husqvarna Resources web page for some tips on where I find information on the web.
