    I am very fond of 4 speed Bultaco’s. Here is me on my 1966 Matador set up for trials. The bike is very close to Sherpa T spec.

    The League did well at the Mountain West Vintage Trials Association National in Roswell this past weekend.

    We were voted "Best Appearing Team" -

    Thank God! At first, I thought that New Mexico trials riders were exceptionally large.

    That looks like fun! I had a great time riding a Fantic 50 once- it worked better than my Cota 247... I think I need a small bike to match my shriking skills and musculature. Plus, it would be fun to look big!

    We are. :evil



    We did. We convinced "Yosemite" Matt Webb to buy a TY80 and start his own team. The League and the TY Locos will face off again this upcoming Saturday in SanYo. Would you like to join in on the fun, LowPSI? The League would welcome you! :deal

    Depends on the cheerleaders, I guess. Maybe you were referring to these guys?
