Three years ago we started Airfoolers.com, a site dedicated to the greatest Three Wheeler of all time – the 81-84 Honda 250R.

I wanna thank the many, many members who have joined our community over the course of those 3 years. Not to mention all of the many former pro-riders from the early 80′s era who have done interviews with the site and those who continue to post on our forum, sharing pics and fielding questions from us mere mortals.

We salute you.

It was a hard choice to make – but – I have a gift to unveil. I had planned to unleash it today but I will hold off and share it with you all as a Christmas gift.

Until then, much respect & love to all of the 3 wheeled brotherhood.

Regards,
Saul

Early to Mid 1980′s ATV racing – A plethora of words could be used to describe that era. Pioneering, exciting, innocent, coming of age, finesse, reckless & the most appropriate for this article – BRUTAL!

Yes, it was the guys (and the gals ) of that era, riding and racing the original racing ‘ATV’ paving the way for future generations of riders and racers to come.

I’m personally in awe, intrigued & humbled by the racers & machines of that day. I feel that they don’t get close to the respect they are due from today’s media, press and riders. It’s their loss, I guess. (Not the riders of yesterday, but rather those of today) I’ll continue to frame and hang their pictures on my wall, luckily converse with them online or on the telephone whenever possible and just do whatever I can to properly show respect to those who made the sport of ATV racing what it is today.

One such person, a man I am lucky enough to call a friend, is Mr.Brutal himself, Mr. Craig Corda.

You’ve probably read the interview I conducted with Craig months ago. Maybe even spoke with him on our forums where he is registered as BMC – Craig has been very willing to share with Airfoolers.com.

However, this willingness to share went a step further some months back. Craig had noticed the authentic racing gear Brett Driscoll had sent to me. Link 1 and Link 2 .

Craig & his wonderful wife Cathy gathered up my shipping address and just told me they were sending a package. I didn’t know what to expect – but – upon arrival I was floored.

Without further ado – here are some pics of the gear Craig and Cathy sent my way for archival. I will nothing short of cherish these items forever. They will be kept safe and preserved forever.

Welcome to Foolerfest!

Hello fellow Foolers!!

When I put this site online two years ago I had a simple goal. That goal was to archive every last bit of information about the 81-84 250R Three Wheeler I could gather.

Would anyone notice? Would anyone care? Would anyone help? Didn’t matter! The Airfooler was the original factory performance trike & in my opinion, it deserved it’s own shrine on the net. People ‘oh’ & ‘ah’ over the 85-86 model year & while that’s all fine and good – it bugs me when people neglect, overlook or hate on the Fooler. The true original.

I guess you have to own one to realize how special they are. A different breed, not unlike those own, ride & love them.

Over the last 2 years I’ve come to find out there were many, many more Foolers out there just as passionate as me. A group of people so kind, caring, giving and just all around ‘good people’

I may have provided a ‘home’ – but – they provided the ‘family.’

Some members of our family are gathered in Attica right now for Foolerfest 2010! It blows my mind and humbles me to even write that!

And to get the pic below in an email? Words don’t do justice to the emotions I felt when I saw it. I’ll let the picture speak for itself and end by saying – Wish I was there guys!
