Classic Trials Event in Japan

I just received a nice message from Japan from my good friend Mori san. As you may recall in previous posts, the Mori family own and operate a trials park near Kyoto and recently held a classic trials event. Here is a link to a video of still photos from the day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SQCO...

Re: tlr200 stripping of road gear

............ agreed but with a slight variation. So as not to gum up the hole too much I went to the local hardware store and bought a small plastic cap that more or less fits the hole. Apply a little silicone and pop it in the hole, looks a bit better than just a silicone bung but does the same thi...

Re: 4 Stroke or 2 Stroke ?

I agree, he does have an interesting technique. One of the main attributes that I can see is that his head is full of hot air and his.....(how to say this nicely....) physique, tends to give the bike a very low centre of gravity which obviously helps. Certainly I would say there would be planty of t...

Re: 4 Stroke or 2 Stroke ?

Sorry Brian

I can't accept that four stroke = odd. In my humble experience, there are many more 'odd' two strokers out there.

Here's one that comes to mind

Re: Fettling a TLR 200

Hi Michael Welcome to 'Team Honda' Lots of people are working on TLR200's and 250's right now, they have become very popular over the last few years.

Re: Museum queens

Her who MUST be obeyed has so far been very ....... very patient and understanding and I will definately not be pushing the buttons to test this theory anytime soon. Perhaps the checkerplate will have to wait. Just to show my appreciation of her kind willingness to allow me to indulge myself, I thou...
