    Isn't the new SWM basically a 510 Husky? Sure someone said it was, made in the same factory with old designs.

    Not seen them before and yes, looks like a dead ringer for the Husky.

    It looks like the 2009-10 model. Duel exhaust. My 2008 had a single exhaust.

    New SWMs are the old Husky designs, the engines are now made in China - could they be made any worse than when they were made by Italians?
    New CCMs use the same engine as the big SWM.

    Wiltshire. It may be full of pigs, but at least there's plenty of bacon.

    I still love 'em but finances dictated no bikes for a few years and I've only fairly recently picked up an XT660X to get back into it.

    When funds allow, I'd like a 690SM for bwaaarps'n'zooms and a Desert Sled for longer rides..... but the XT is such a good compromise that I'm not really in any rush.

    Also coveting one of the new 250 2 stroke EXCs for laning and maybe the odd enduro. My old one was great fun in supermoto trim so might even go down that route.
