Joe Versus The Husqvarna

This one almost pushed Mrs. Gresh over the edge—although she’s taking it better than Joe’s old 1983 Honda Magna 1100. Maybe because this one runs? Anyway, resistance is futile: Sometimes you get the bike, other times the bike rips out your still-beating heart. A 2008 Husqvarna SMR510 with 860 original miles is not to be denied. That deafening Arrow slip-on? Ample warning for the tiny, endangered Key Deer who frequent the roadways of the Florida Keys. Those mini-bike-looking 17-inch wheels? All the better for Joe’s short legs to claw for the ground.
