I rode dirt bikes from around 1980 until probably 1997 or so. There aren't allot of legal places around Kansas City to ride and that was the main reason I got out of it. I have four nephews who are started riding last year. I went out with them a couple times last summer and am looking for a used dirt bike. I probably won't ride allot, but think I would enjoy getting abck into it. Since I sold my last bike (a 1989 ATK 250E) my wife and I have been active in the Camaro Club of Kansas City, doing cruises, shows and plan to do long haul on the 2004 Hot Rod Power Tour. We currently have three first generation Camaros. Your site looks great and I look forward to spending more time here.
BTW, I found out about your site from a winshield banner on the back window of a truck across the street from where I work.

Only 3?? :) My Dad would be jealous. He had a '67 when he was in highschool. Not an SS though. A six-banger with a column shift. :eek:

Welcome to the site! Sell off one of those SS's and I bet you'll have all kinds of play money for a bike or two. :)

Did that ATK have a Rotax motor? I was always hoping ATK could be serious competition, but never heard much more from them. (Course, I don't hear well, either!)

Yup, I work at Havens. I just came back here after a two year hiatous.
SMIT, there is talk of selling one of the Camaros. I need to do some big projects at home, get a new truck in the near future and of coarse I want to get a bike, but I'm trying not to make that a major thing. I kind of want to do all this without affecting my retirement ;-)
The ATK did have a rotax. I loved that bike. It was light, handled great, ran great and was reliable. I'm not a great rider, so allot of bikes can probably do more than I can squeeze out of them, but it was allot of fun.
So where around this area do you guys ride? Also, I've changed jobs and lost a book mark to a group in Kansas, something like "backroads Kansas". It's a group who rides dual purpose bikes and mainly tries to stay off paved areas. Do any of you belong to that group? I thought about doing that, but those big four strokes aren't as fun to ride. Too heavy.

Oops, let me clarify that. They mainly ride 650 street legal dual purpose bikes. Four strokes in general are great. I had an XR200R before the ATK.
I didn't mean to offend anybody.

Welcome to DRN! That is sooooo freaking hilarious that out of all the 30,000+ members, you would happen to work across the street from BigLou. He's probably one of our best ambassadors, so maybe he'll give you the scoop on the No Talent Ass Clowns. THATS the KC club you wanta join :)
