    Wednesday night at the Tryals Shop. Since I’m in between bikes, Mike let me ride the shop bike... El Tractore! Gas Gas TXT 320, with a Montesa rear fender. So glad to get a trials ride in, but riding El Tractore makes me anxious to get my new 125! Thank you Mike and the Tryals Shop!

    If he would have made a second pair to walk the same places, I would say "He was a retread"

    Installed new iridium plug, shorty clutch / brake levers, plus a Domino white throttle tube on the new-to-me 4RT.

    Then had my "D'oh!" moment after kicking the damn thing over probably 20 times trying to start it. I finally realized that the throttle cable wasn't seated exactly right and kept the throttle body from shutting completely. Fixed that and it fired first kick. What a Doofus :-)

    Nice bike. That bike mount though would make me nervous. One of the guys at our club was telling me about someone who was coming to one of the events years ago with that same setup. At one point he looked back to see his bike dragging on the road behind him. I guess the platform twisted off and the whole thing was dragging on the ground just held to the car with a ratchet strap. :fpalm:D

    Anything can break. Truck , trailer, rv. But when I was working at the Yamaha shop a guy bought a new yz250. Several hours later he came back and the bike was comepletly mangagled. The bike had fell off the trailer on a dirt road and he just kept going for about 5 miles with a huge dust cloud behind him. Imagine your bike is almost junk and you never even rode it once.
