    Finished giving Mrs Kanur's new to her TY 175 a little make over. I added the Sammy Miller seat/tank combo and the yellow fenders. Also replaced all the fasteners with new stainless ones.

    She was anxious to play with it so I'll wait till next winter to clean up the frame of unused tabs and give it a fresh coat of paint.

    I played.....

    Been playing in the back yard, doing figure 8's and 3 bollard twister, also got a few small obstacles up the driveway to practice lifting the front wheel over etc, as I am not allowed on the grass.

    After a couple of these.....

    [​IMG]


    Things got better, and I was getting to "clear" my little obstacle course.

    Nicola's car also has a towbar fitted now, so I should be able to get places for dabbers meetings and also any other propper places to practice.


    She took the pics while watching to see if I needed an ambulance or neck brace.

    On Monday I kick started the bike and somehow managed to miss the action completely, ending up with the back of my knee hitting the top of the kickstarter at full force.
    It was not really sore, but it has progressively gotten more impresive looking, today it is a whole rainbow, with a nice large egg sized lump under the skin.
    Teach me to be casual about it.

    Found a broken spoke on the rear wheel a couple of weeks ago. Bought the replacement spoke end, not even thinking about where the break was. Found the spoke broken clean off in the adjuster. :bluduh

    Now to get it out, since I did not buy the adjuster. Had a couple of frosty adult beverages while replacing the engine and transmission mounts on the Abductor Van earlier, which is never conducive to clean, straight drilling out of a tiny spoke end.

    Then again, maybe it did help...

    [​IMG]



    Adjuster threaded into the spoke ends just fine. No one was more surprised than I was....

    [​IMG]



    Maybe later I'll drink a 6-pack and overhaul the transmission........ :lol3

    I rode my first trials last Sunday.

    Third place trophy in Intermediate class. Not too bad I guess.
    The bike was a '99 2.9 I bought this February.
    I think it has a lot of tired parts....

    I don't like to ride bikes that are 'OK'. So I found a nice '07 Evo 3 270 in the flea market.

    I rode it tonight. It's not 'OK'.

    It's GREAT!

    I'm really looking forward to the next event!

    Aidan took his MX bike for a spin, so he can get ready to ride his TY 80.
