Nick Fahringer showed up at the John Penton with a 2012 300cc two-stroke Husaberg, one of only four in the States at this time. The national enduro ace was anxious to give the bike a try, no doubt, since it is considerable lighter than it's four-stroke counterpart. "This is a new model for Husaberg and this seemed like a good opportunity to change it up," said Fahringer. "I like my 450, but sometimes change just for the sake of change is kind of fun. Also, in the national enduros a couple of the top guys are going to be switching to two-stokes for the next round (Charlie Mullins and Cory Buttrick will be riding the 2012 KTM XC models next week in Michigan), so I thought it would be fun to match up with those guys. I haven't been on a two-stroke in four years, so it's been a while.
