Wow, Jaumev! How cool you've got a Montesa Cota trials bike... And from back when they were really truly a "Montesa" and not a "Honda"!

First motorcycle shop I worked in (back in 1970) was primarily a British bike (Triumph, BSA, Norton, etc.) repair shop, but also sold both Bridgestone and Montesa motorcycles. I've always loved Montesa's!

Yes!!

I had my first Cota when I was 14th. Then I ride trial most of my life, always with Cotas, I was a factory rider in the Spanish trials championship, did some trials in the world championship, the Scottish Six Days Trial... so they send me a new bike every year, I think I had all the Cota’s… good times…
Unfortunatelly after some golden years, Spain lost all its motorcycle factories: Montesa, Bultaco, Ossa... last month Derbi close his factory... a pity…
Now I have three Montesas in my garage:

Cota 330:



A prototype: Cota 200 but with 223cc engine



Impala 175 Sport

You will enjoy this bike!!
I've never owned one. Seems like I consider one every time I buy a new bike but never commit.

Sallydog update.

He came by my house today to say hi. Riding out of New Jersey with his wonder dog.
It's quite a sight to see his rig pull up and the dogs head sticking out of the travel box.
Gave me the giggles.











and the grand kid working on her wheelie skills.....

Nice I just picked mine up as well, tested the Tiger Explorer, that was a sweet bike. Seemed a lot more street slanted than the Yamaha.

I think we will enjoy these S10's
