    Cool Long time no see my friends!!!

    I hope all is well with those that I know and welcome to those whom I don't. I've often wondered how everyone is doing over here... For those who don't know who I am; I am the original owner who developed this community to serve and fill a glaring void in the industry for what was then the new KTM ATV's. The idea for KTMATVHQ was born in September 2007 soon after I got my 525XC; I began site development immediately and the community went live February 13, 2008. With a little math one can see that in a few weeks KTMATVHQ will turn 5!!!For some reason when the communities new ownership decided to migrate to the new software my accounts somehow got disabled... Tonight I was looking though my email spam folder and had received an email from a member inquiring about stickers. So after I responded to him, it got me to thinking about how to re-enabled my accounts without raising too many eyebrows. I ended up getting lucky and was able to slide in through an old dummy account that I had hid before the site was ever live. It's been quite some time since I have been able to log on; looks like around June 2011!!! I'm glad to see that Kiwi and his mods have been taking care of the community since I left. They all make me very proud!!!All is well for me and my family!!! For those who might remember, soon after I brought the community online my wife and I welcomed identical twin boys to our family... It's hard to believe that in March they will turn 5 and our daughter will be 10!!!As most know I sold my KTM in mid 2010 and turned my focus solely to my RZR which was beyond wicked!!! I parted my RZR out from Jan - Aug 2012 and I still have a Wasteland Ranger (4-seater) and Mule for hunting. Now that my kids are getting older and taking interest I see quads making a return to my garage sometime in the future.Again it is good to be back and I will make it an effort to stop by and check in at least once every week or two. I hope all is well and am glad to see how healthy the community is; without Kiwi and his team of dedicated mods this place would of died long ago!!!Bronson

    Glad to hear you are back. I'm not a heavily active member here, but I do enjoy going throught the threads to see what is new from time to time. It seems like its a bit slow around here and I can't help but wonder if it's because of the lack of new owners out there. I sure hope they bring the ATVs back the the states soon. On one hand I enjoy being one of the few owners of the now-rare KTM, but on the other, it's kind of lonely and a bit worrysome for what the future holds for parts.
