My closest dealer is in SF, but they only like selling Ducati stuff
and so everything Husky has to be ordered.
My favorite dealer is MotoXotica in Vacaville...about an hour or so
away. I call or e-mail Dan on Tuesday morning and my stuff is on my
porch when I get home from work Wednesday afternoon...every time. I
don't know how he does it, but it's great.
I've never had to wait for any Husky part, although to be fair my WR
is brand new and my 610 has been very reliable. I did have WR parts
(FMF pipe, jets, seals, gaskets, etc.) ordered and they came in a very
timely manner. Dan is a joy to work with and he makes it easy to own a
Husky. Hall's is good, too. We've ordered GasGas stuff from them, too
and they've been great.
Eric and I bought our GasGases when our only dealer was in Arkansas.
As long as you have a good dealer you can trust, it doesn't matter
where he is <G>

That's what keeps me on a 125 (or 250 4-s). Those bigger bikes are
SCARY and are far too high in operational costs - and by operational
costs, I mean cost of operations...
