Are you man enough?

❏ We owe a great deal to
dedicated ATV owners who spend
the time and money to keep the
legendary machines from our
sport’s past alive and more than
well. In this case, a Duncan Racing
International, Inc. customer chose
to unite two legends—Duncan
Racing and a 1987 Suzuki LT-500R
QuadRacer. The LT-500R moniker
is all but lost in common vernacular;
the machine has simply become
known as “Quadzilla.” Quadzilla is
an allusion to the fictional Japanese
monster Godzilla that is, as you may
imagine, not famous for its manners
or vintage teapot collection.
Godzilla is a giant, fire-breathing,
city-eating monster, while Quadzilla
is giant-pistoned, fire-breathing,
dirt-eating monster. The nickname
makes perfect sense.
