Mr. Know It All
Thanks for the Memories
By Rondo Talbot
I ran across this website and have a few comments.
1. I was an avid Dirt Bike reader in elementary school and dreamed of owning the 1984 CR80s shown in your full page ads. This, of course, made me a hated mini bike rider (although you’ll be glad to know I could only afford a JT-1 from Chico).
2. Modern magazine writers suck. I miss your articles and the old writing styles.
3. I have always hated PE175s.
4. I would like to add a powerband to my current SL70. Can I add two and make it twice as fast?
Yes, I too read Dirt Bike Magazine, but not for fun, I was looking for mistakes, so I could chide that over-stuffed editor what's his face, Super something-or-other. His only saving grace is that he rode a Maico to some degree of alacrity, and he gave me a good deal on advertising.
In your missive you say you hated the PE175? A shame, since it was a nice little motorcycle with excellent inherent good handling qualities. But for someone who is looking to purchase a powerband for his SL70, well, poo poo, the SL70 didn't deserve a powerband, and as it turned out the motor worked real well in wheel chairs.
You really should have known. And thanks for the memories.
