Anything going direct to the earth could use rebar.

The 1994 JT 250 came home. Long story that I will make short. Bought the bike from a dealer in Dallas in 1995. Bike was Jordi Tarres's brothers minder bike during a world round. Bike has been with me since, many many folks learning to ride trials/motorcycling on this 250. It was a works bike of sorts with additional gold anodized stuff and a hydraulic clutch. The clutch, engine and most everything is still stock. Hell I think the front tire is still stock. Loaned it to friend Larry, then he got 'queer for trials' and now owns a Beta and Larry had to buy it. Sold to Larry in July 2013. Present day wife bought it back. The 250 came home and is snuggled into the garage.

Went through the bike, cleaned it up, fluids and filter, etc. Added hand guard protection. Bike is 20 years old and still rides good, soft but good.



Tape on seat/sticker is from a glue job.

Good to see the Gasser again, even from a hospital bed, that was the bike that got me "queer for trials"

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Somehow I just knew that bike would wind up back in your scuderia. Congrats!

I had to google "scuderia". Kinda confusing, you newmexicans are supposed to be using old spanish terms and this seems to be italian.

But never mind. Is it really a twenty year old front tire? I'm in for a few bucks, if I get to see this bike at SanY next month...

Well the present day wife is the actual owner. So she wants to ride trials. Really, after 13 years you decide you want to ride trials? I guess the TTR 125 is no longer as fun. That and since she was busted by some rude dude at the last San Yisdro event for riding a non trials tire, maybe that was the motivation. She should be there in February sporting her bike and the rude dude will start it for her.

Unless you changed it Bob, it is the original tire.

Scuderia is Italian for "stable".

Rumor has it that ATeam may be of Italian decent.

Two things. Feb. is not likely the time for a killer loop. We have had a shortage of scorers for the afternoon. Different is always good!
