While we are stepping back in time, I would like to correct the typo in the next photo, it should read :Honda: TLR 250 as this Magazine was January 1986. Ten years ...............................................after they stopped selling :Honda: TL 250s.

Who's that skinny looking bloke on the TY mono riding over the pallets?
I'm thinking it's Qld legend and '85 Oz champ Steve Hope but I could be wrong, sure looks like him though.

That is Steve Hope, the riding gear and Nolan helmet is identical to what he wore back then. There was an english Yamaha rider Tony Scarlett from the same era who it could be mistaken for but he wore Apico gear and a different helmet

Yeah, I was fairly certain it was Hopey. My ole mate Jeff Gough(RIP) told me many years ago that he and some of the other top Qld riders were invited to the Kitson property to evaluate some man made sections before they were implemented at Qld's 1st indoor Trial at the wood chop arena at the Brisbane Ekka showgrounds. That shot of Hopey, I believe, is from the Kitson property where all these former greats were working out whether the obstacles needed to be amped up or toned down for the actual event, that's my recollection of the time. The ADB article simply shows indoor/stadium pics from anywhere.

The riders must have found that obstacle a bit easy. On the night they had a similar pallet set-up in the middle of the arena that was a lot bigger and had vertical step ups. Had to have a bit of a chuckle reading that article at the lack of political correctness back then when the author referred to falling off in front of "big titted young ladies in the front row". Couldn't say that these days.

Hi everyone,
Now I am wondering how many :Honda: TLRs came to Queensland?

As for Steve Hope, my magazine has a front on shot.

Yes, I remember the pallet stack as I was riding that day as part of the "B" grade contingent, it was a bit scary at the top and coming down, getting up wasn't too bad. I remember the pyramid of 44 gallon drums and the semi-circle of vertical uprights where we had to perform a floating turn touching each upright with the front tyre as being the most difficult for me as a B grader. I was in awe of the talent around me, good times.
