"Kronreif, Trunkenpolz, Mattighofen"

The gents Kronreif and Trunkenpolz started a motorcycle company in Mattighofen, Austria. That's where the name comes from.

Buddy of mine has a 300 KTM. I call it "Kick The Machine". He calls mine YAMAHArd to start although I usually start in 1 kick if I can remember to turn the Baja Designs switch on. I hate wasting a good kick.

How about, Kick Then Moto? Please fellas, get off your high horse about how good your Yamahas are. Bikes are bikes and it is the guy behind the throttle that makes all the difference. My 2 cents, Eric
