|I don't think I had introduce myself before, even though I joined the board quite early. Anyway, I live in NM, currently own a Ninjette with Velorex.
I also have a minimoto sidecar (an ATM-Polini, the real thing, that runs over 55 mph; not the cheap Chinese imitation).
BTW, if anyone is interested in the ATM-Polini let me know. As far as I concern it is now the only surviving ATM-Polini in the USA or possibly North America, ever since the entire works team's outfits were stolen in Las Vegas a few years back. It was very suspicious by they were stolen, the works team lapped the Chinese imitations like a GSX-r1000 lapping a mopeds in the championship. The very next morning everything was stolen except mine.
I loaned mine to the works team but ironically they could not use it because at the last minute one of the fuel hose broke (since fixed). Maybe whoever stole the works teams outfits thought that mine was a broken commodity. Ironically mine was originally loaned to the #1 team because mine was actually faster than the works team's. They ended up having to use the reserve rig that is owned by the works team.
