I had a Deltek Grass Grub mini bike (you guessed it, lawnmower engine) first then the old man bought home a pristine TY80
Although he never rode trials himself he had it in his head that we would.
I used to curse that bike as I chased XR75's through the trails bottoming out the suspension everywhere I went but it sure could take a flogging and come back for more without so much as a wash for maintenence.

Went on to the red and white TY175 ( loved that bike) then the yellow and white 250.

Best thing about trials bikes is you learn to ride the right way no matter what else you find your self on.

After that trip down memory lane I gotta say that if there was a Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Small Bikes you bastards would be in the hall of fame!
Whats next show jumping on a Shetland ponies?
Perhaps side car racing with Honda Monkey bikes.
