from ATV Industry Magazine
Article by Racer 450 Staff
Back in October ATV Industry Magazine held the 2005 ATV Expo & World’s Fair in Louisville, Kentucky. The show was presented by Suzuki and featured a huge display of new Suzuki off road products along with autograph signing from last year’s ATV motocross champion Doug Gust and new kid on the team, Jeremiah Jones.
Just over from the Suzuki booth was Yoshimura, the engine shop for Suzuki’s ATV race team. Several people were on hand from Suzuki and Yoshimura to answer questions and offer knowledgeable advice.
Although we concentrated mainly on the racing industry in attendance there were displays from all aspects of the industry. Our favorite was Mattracks, Inc. maker of the ATV track system.
This Honda Rincon was equipped with Mattracks and just about everything else from the Kimpex catalog. Several “tracked” ATVs were on display and gained as much attention as any of the race ATVs from last season.
We caught up with Jamie from ITP to check out the new wheels and tires ITP would be offering this season like the MXR4 and powder coated C-Series. Jamie also told us some interesting stories about riding in Glamis and going just south of the border.
