North Stars, a Pacer, and Trouble

After selling my CR480, I still had the itch to ride, but didnít scratch it until the next spring. I bought this bike brand new from Burnsville Sports Center. It was much tamer than a motocross bike, but it had the advantage of being quiet and street legal.

Despite what the marketing folk would have you believe, life with a Pacer was not all ridiculous sweaters and rainbows. The cars only looked like the second photo for a few weeks.

The driver of a Pacer does not appreciate having this embarrassing moment photographed.

A real North Stars shirt, not these facsimiles that started showing up. Years of poor laundering testify to its authenticity.
