    Not sure what they are in USD.
    Some shop in New York is managing the American Distribution. Two people are co-managing the North American Distribution. One of them is Rob Lang.

    Double quote..

    Now that I’ve had time to ponder that, I remember going there LONG time ago. It was like stepping into a time machine as you entered, he had EVERYTHING! Probably was in the mid eighties.

    Sallys right leg might have some issues that I can’t figure oot. I got a call that the KE left her stranded. It wood knot start. I show up. It starts on the first kick. Her 125 has “starting issues” sometimes tuu. Electric start wood bee nice.

    This has been working well for the Sasquatch, the prices are definitely attractive. @Traveller128 has more experience with the Contact than I so he can probably offer some input.

    That is an option. I am not sure I like that shade of orange.

    No big deal I don’t think, shoot by my house is an open ohv area. I wouldn’t go ride designated trails if I was going to shred the ground.

    It’s still fall on the western slope, I hope it stays nice until December 4th when we leave for Egypt

    Beautiful day, little chilly to start. But I headed out in search of color. I found it. I thought I'd ride about 50 and head home. I did about 75, then checked the Evart trail head. Parking lot was full! Glad others were out enjoying the day too. I ended up trying the "short cut" through to Sunrise Lake. Was a big messy mistake. Logging operation, and wet weather have made a mess of the seasonal road. I'd probably have had an easier ride if I'd been on the trail. But the TW and rider made it. Decided I was still having fun to stop. Headed over to work to check on black walnut droppage. 102 miles! Then home in time to catch a ride to a birthday dinner party.
    I probably should clean the mud off my bike. But if tomorrow is nice, I may not waste the time.

    S3 has come out with a e start kit for the Cota 4rt. But I don't love the idea I think it will make for a heavy expensive bike. I think you are barking up the right tree with the Sherco ty 125 for a low cost option tew be ridden on the lower lines . I think the TRS e start X track smoker is it for the premium e start bike. The USA importer has been messing with the bike to have e start with the seat kit off and rumour is the factory has as well.

    Making your beautiful wife’s riding life easy is a good plan in my estimation!

    Yeah, the stuff that she is doing the Sherco would be fine. She is not hopping, not doing ledges.

    Before you pass on a Contact, give the 250 a try if you can. The power is pretty soft for a 250, it doesn’t surprise the Sasquatch very much and I get to thrash it to ride the stuff my Beta 300 snoozes through, it’s a fun change for me.
    Also it’s the best clutch I’ve ever had.

    If it runs it's fun. I don't think there is a motorcycle I'd not be able to enjoy. But the TW being low, with low gearing helped me. Had I been on a tall bike, I probably wouldnt have tried! The place I decide not to ride through. I had TW in first gear walking beside it. I was on the mucky edge of the narrow mound between 2 deep and wide water filled ruts. I had the TW on the area that was the most solid. Neither of us would have been recoverable from the muck holes. I kept thinking I need to get some pics. But didn't want to risk dropping my phone or anything else!

    The Gas Gas bikes I had a chance to ride rode well very light feeling and lots of motor a 300 GP and a older 250. I think if I just rode trials events and short loop ones they would be fine. But for play riding and mountain exploring I don't think I could live with the transmissions. The trans would be really ugly on a 125 with all the shifting. I personally feel like Jordi took all the good points of the Gasser and fixed the not so good stuff with his TRS brand.
