In the 90's I rode TY 250 monos then several Aprilia Climbers. From 89 through to 91/92. I was lucky enough to work for Gerald Richardson who sponsored Stefan Merriman and Geoff Aaron over here in North Yorkshire, Northern England
I now have almost completed restoring this 1990 280 Climber and I have another green 1991 280 waiting to be saved!
I compete a 2012 280 Gas Gas which is a world away from the Climbers as they were monsters back then, lets hope I can tame it now I am a few stone heavier!
