    When all of the bad publicity began to erode the 3-wheeler market, sales of 3Wheeling went right down the tubes, and so did ads. The people who liked 3-wheelers stopped reading the 3-wheeler magazines, and as the Quads came into the market, our readership did not increase (even after changing the name of the magazine to ATV Sports). I always thought that people who began riding ATCs were a little different, or came from a different background, that the ones that really took to Quads. I thought that people with more motorcycle background liked Quads better than 3-wheelers. Dean

    Yeah, that bad publicity did destroy the 3-wheeler market and created a bad influence on new riderís and in our society as well, thatís why we still have them to proof they were wrong, because 3-wheelers are safe and more fun, or else we wouldnít own them today. The sport still lives! So get your 250 ready for BAJA or GLAMIS.

    Dean, do you remember anything about the Honda Fat Cats, Yamaha Big Wheels or the Missile Engineering 250R kits? I never hear much about them anywhere.

    Thanks Mark

    3Wheeling Stickers have been sent out to the following so far

    Flack
    Hays
    Heinrichs
    Wilson
    Hechel
    Maxwell
    Savage
    Dull
    Bishop

    Now about the BW and Fat Cat.... Since I never really rode dirt bikes much before the ATC, those kind of ATVs didn't feel that comfortable. I liked the BW 200 the times I rode it, but putting down my foot and leg was against everything the ATC rider knows. I also rode a modified version with larger forks and more power. The Honda Fat Cat came out after I stopped riding..... The Missile Engineering conversions were hot for awhile, but like so much in this industry, things changes. Dean

    Thanks for the reply Dean, I had no idea that the Missile Engineerig kits were popular at all. They look like they are a little spookey to ride but I have never had the chance to even ride a 250R.

    Thanks

    Dean,
    Thanks for the stickers.
    A 3Wheeling sticker will be the crowing jewel for my Tecate restoration.

    Did you ever expect to have the celebrity status you have here?

    Thanks again for your work at the Mag.
    Reading some of your articles it is great to hear an honest opinion of a product.
    Dirt Wheels sometimes reads like nothing but one big advertisement.

    Thanks again.

    Got the stickers on. Thanks Dean!

    Did a little decal trimming for the 250SX and alot of trimming on the 70...

    I seem to recall some of the 3wheeling stickers I saw on ride test vehicles in the magazine had been trimmed all the way around the lettering, do you recall if these were actually made this way or were they done by hand?

    Yes, most of our test riders, and the staff, had to hand-cut the stickers with an X-acto knife, before we placed them on our helmets. It took a little time and patients, but it was something we wanted to do "for the cool look". I still have my Troy Lee-painted helmet with those stickers on them.

    Dean, in an earlier post you made the comment that "San Diego was home of the ATC" can you elaborate on this?

    What was the deciding factor in starting the 3wheeling magazine?

    Thanks
    Mike
