The good thing about Husaberg bikes made between 2009-2014 is that they have a lot of interchangeable parts between KTM especially 2013 and 2014 when they used the exact same motor. But 2009-2012 have the better 4 stroke motor IMO, induction sound is amazing as well.
You can do it in a street bike too. Pin to win in first gear - let off the gas and smack the rear brake to lock it for a second and with a bit of countersteer and throttle you’re sliding like a mofo.
If you crack open the throttle too hard in the rain, and you’re leaned over coming out of a bend the back can just let go and the wheel spins up and steps out a little like this. As long as you go easy on the throttle, and don’t touch the brakes, the bike is not horribly unstable. The bike turns, and eventually the back wheel comes back into line and everything’s right in the world again.
I’ve done this by accident in traffic too :-/ I remember coming around a corner with the back spun up and stepping out, lashings of rain, and looking at the face of a guy sitting in traffic going the other direction in a big SUV. The look of horror he gave me was interesting.
The first time it happened to me it was so sudden I didn’t have time to close the throttle or screw it up in some other way. And, if I’m honest, when I start driving like this I know it’s time to but the bike away for a bit and start cycling more.
Finnish is such a completely alien sounding language to me. I can speak english, french and spanish, even a tiny bit of Japanese. When I hear Finnish, though, not a single bit of it is even remotely familiar. Most European or Scandanavian languages have at least some elements that I can recognize from German or something. Weird.
People have already mentioned that the Finno-Ugaric group differs, but I must also be a pedant and point out that Basque is a Western European language with very little in common with any other European language. It basically adopts the prosody of whatever country it’s being spoken in and has a couple of loan words and stuff and that’s the end of that.
