Just comepleted a two day event riding our sportsman line. What a fun time, glad I was on the little cota 200. What a great little bike, funny thing is it sat in my garage for eight years unridden due to not being AHRMA legal! Time to get rid of the reflex and put some real brakes on the Montesa!!
If you are not interested in modifying the TLR to make it into a fun and competitive TS trials bike, I would completely agree it is pretty poor.
For anyone not happy with the stock bike, I would suggest having a good look at the "Trials Central" Honda forum, where there are some very useful ideas to help with improving handling and getting more power.
