The last snow storm gave us some healthy sized snow banks around our shop parking lot. They're packed enough to use as trials obstacles. So got to officially test the rebuilt TXT270\280 on them. This bike feels great

Hi Brian,
I rode the “Trials on the Isle” also. The sections and trails connecting them were incredibly fun, everyone I talked to had a great time. I am very happy I was able to participate.

A couple days ago, but I replaced the rigged up yamaha fender on my 1992 GT25 with the proper fender. Looks much better. Next up is the front. The mounts are cracked and you can't just buy new mounts. It is $186 for a complete front fender with mounts or $55 for just the fender. I think I'll buy the fender and try to repair the mounts.

Before:


After (please ignore my messy garage lol):

15" of snow on the ground here. I should trade my trials bike in for a snowmobile.

The picture with snow was when I brought it home 2 weeks ago. We have about a foot right and that's why I didn't move it out of my messy garage for the picture haha.

Sold my 2004 sherco 290 .... great bike, tough as nails.
I already miss it very much, though when I buy that 2006 Raga I am looking at the love for my Sherco may fade

Last ride on the Sherco (March 3rd 2013)

How do you find the ossa? I also have a 2011 and love it, especially with the 9v start system. Will you be doing any ATA or CVMG trials?

I was at the St George trial last fall (spectator) and the owner told me he was going to sell it.Took almost a year to sell one of my bikes so i could buy this one.(i'm only allowed 3) I'll try to get in a few events along with my tracktime.

The ossa importer runs excellent practice sessions throughout the summer if you need somewhere to ride between trials, Wednesday evenings and weekends, excellent place, excellent group to ride with
