Okay, Thessen Island is a good lead. Any further clues  ???

My first bike was a KTM 504 with that bloody K4 Rotax engine. Was a bitch to kick start and split the soles of my new Nike tekkies in half...
That motor was so heavy that it was almost impossible to wheelie - but it would wheel-spin up to third gear. ;D
