Welcome your Lordship. You WILL enjoy a 'tard, especially if you move to Vancouver. If you go there, you'll be a short boat-ride away from paradise!
I considered the Husky, but they were harder for me to get than the Berg I ended up with.
I love my Husaberg, it rips! I would recommend it, to a mechanically inclined, experienced rider. They require frequent maintainence.
The KTM LC4 may be a good choice, KTM's are available everywhere and provide a solid platform to build on. There are lots of goodies available for it, you can make it and the husky real quick too!
The vibration may be the KTM's only real weakness.
TM's and ATK's are really nice but pricey, ditto for VOR.
I also forsee the Japanese bringing something to the North American market, sooner than later. They have 'tards in some markets already.
I haven't tried a Husky, but a lot of people ride em! My only misgiving would be...lack of dealer choices. Oh, with any of the smaller brands, you will need to be a little more patient waiting for parts.
Keep us posted!
