    I ordered a 250 piston kit for my ty 350 about two weeks ago. I just happened to have a ty250 cylinder and head laying around. Just a few minutes ago I just received the tracking number from the UK. I guess that`s not going to make it here today. And they call NM the land of Manana.
    I better get that TL 250 running today.

    Yes, and no. It runs but the tank had a small leak. Went to do a little fiberglass fix last night. Previous owner must have tried to seal with something on the inside. Tank had sat dry all winter. Gave it a good shack and the pieces that came out looked like old bath room caulking. I hate that tank any way. I am not fighting a shit tank this weekend. I love that old TL anyway. She`s a pig all dressed up waiting for someone to ride her hard!

    Awesome time at SanYo, right up until the storm hit like a freight train as Sunday's event was wrapping up. 50mph winds and snow, when it was sunny and beautiful not 30 minutes before. Miss Bitters and I high-tailed it home with a massive tailwind pushing the truck and trailer along getting almost 20mpg at 80mph. :D

    No they were on a beer loop and not done when I took the pic. Actually it was one flat tire; a chain tensioner ripped off the frame, a broken chain, one bike lost the condenser/ and or points and I cannot remember the rest of thier excuses/ problems. Such is the life of 250 pound guys riding mini bikes.:fpalm

    Strange to see that Strohman wasn't riding historic twin shock he must have been on the triumph.

    Bite me, Line! 2 flats, 2 thrown master links, multiple thrown chains, 1 ejected chain tensioner, 1 fragged condenser, and one member that did a swan dive into a cactus. And that was just on Saturday. :bluduh

    Also, I only weigh 220 pounds, you ass! :lol3

    He had the Triumph AND a Sherco, getting ready to ride the NATC nationals! Third loop I saw him on the Sherco.

    Welcome to fire season kiddies.

    The Lake Fork, NM round has been cancelled due to fire restrictions. Tell your friends (if you have any, that is). :cry

    Mini-Trials bike class. Air Cooled, twin shock, drum brake, under 110ccs, 16" wheels maximum diameter. Perfect for a bunch of eighty-ots. :lol3
