    All my left kick mojo went away in 1979 when I sold my Sherpa T.

    The 80 junior is great for kids tew small for a 125. But the it seems like they factories don't put much effort into the 80's lots of budget parts. I think any one that can fit a 125 is much better off on one. I saw a picture of Navin on a mini Beta so he must knows all aboot them question is has he tried the bigger trially bikes tew see what he waz missing.:hmmmmm

    I have, and for what I will try in a trials bike the Sr. 80 was just ass guud as anything else for me. 3’ log, NP. Big ledges, easy peasy. Rock feces? Piece off cakes!

    I rode a few 125/200/250/280/300 bikes and I never wood nead the extra powers. Overkill in my cases. I’m not going to leap from flat onto a shed roof or fence post.

    Ya being a good rider already helps you. I find the small bores a little harder tew ride then the bigger bikes but they really teach ya the clutch! Other thing is I feel like I'm really abusing them riding loop trail. Many people have said it and I agree after riding one the Beta 200 is about the best beginners tew average riders bike around. It's easy tuu manage and has good power for the loop and I've seen expert riders throw it up some gnarly stuff. I think the 300 factory 2t although super fun play bikes are tu much for most intermediate riders in actual scored sections and tend tew get ahead of as the english say "clubmen" riders. How's the old body recovering after the TSE wreck ?

    I’m down to normal doses of Advil and Tylenol. Stayed out of bed, (chair) till 6pm yesterday. Getting incrementally better daily. It’s going to be another long week, looking forward to some light duty exercise maybe after that. Finally slept last night so feeling like a BOSS today!
