Feb 4, 2012

OMRA Membership and Points Director (and Friend of Bill’s) got us these pictures of local Husqvarna riders enjoying the evening.  Snazzy red jackets courtesy of Husqvarna Motorcycles NA and NW Husqvarna Rep Jason Dahners.  Bill threw in gift certificates for the award winning Husky riders in attendance.

Lonny Johnson rode his TXC511 last year to 3rd in GP 50AM, in spite of missing several events due to a broken wrist early in the season. Lonny will ride the TXC511 and a TE250 next year at a variety of GP/XC and Dual Sport events, including the Husqvarna sponsored AMA Black Dog and Fort Rock DS rides.

Luke Bennett slogged his way to 3rd XC 40AM in 2011 aboard an XR400 Honda. He is now riding a ’11 TE250 Husqvarna for the 2012 season.

Tyler Foley cleaned up in the Junior Expert XC class in 2011 early and started riding a WR125/144 Husqvarna to keep himself entertained at the last couple of events of 2011.  He should do well his first year on the full size bike.

Greg King and Tom Haugen both rode several event ons WR250s last year, but werent able to make it to the banquet, not to mention the Father and Son Stiff Duo, Jake Metteer, Motosportz Kelly, Richard Mello, “Husky” Bob Davis and myriad Husky riders who showed up at Poker Runs and other OMRA events.
