GCRad1's ATK 605 The ADV-Rotaxerie [1998 Model]

SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND... My new to me [1998] ATK 605 Dual Sport Rotaxerie Machine! Who is not so little... I picked this bike up back in December 2009 from a friend of a friend... yea, one of those deals and the deal was GOOD! With work being such, no leg would be thrown over the saddle for six months! And stabled not in my garage, but at my buddies house who arranged the purchase. No, he is a good friend.. How do I know? The brand new tires are still brand new! That is a real friend! Thank you J-Shizzle!!

What spurred a ATK 605 purchase? The KTM950ADV is gone. A little bit missed, not forgotten, but not the right tool for me currently. It could come back into my life...

And then there is the XR400 Dirt Dawg that died in battle of the great forest of Big Bear Mountains protecting the West Coast. It will come back to hunt again and is a "life-keeper" due to it's "CA-plated-status!" A hunting dawg with PAPERWORK! And it too sits in wait as the ADV80 has taken some time and status more with the family members.

A lot of my time has been spent on, more like in the ADV80 Land Cruiser, because it hauls the kids for the family adventure's.

A name is a name, and everything is in a name... So, why: GCRad1's ATK 605 The ADV-Rotaxerie?
GCRad1 - cause that is who I am, search around.
ATK 605, 'cause that is what it is!
But why the trickery wordplay.. "ADV-Rotaxerie"
2: Rotax & Rotisserie together make: Rotaxerie. Belt driven motor spinning some BEEF and that is what this motor delivers - BEEF!

Fun research:

Rotax Engines

So the journey begins.................................
