Speaking of lugging large Marks around trials sections - there was one particular rider who once threatened to call the RSPCA and report me for cruelty to my little beasty for making it carry me around like that. The reality is though that it does it so well and so easily. It only has one weakness and unfortunately it happens to be a very limiting factor......

....That's the nut that holds the handlebars. If it wasn't for that my little TY could do anything.

Yes. Absolutely. I intend to have a test ride as soon as its convenient, presumably at Conondale, and I also intend to have a chat with David about just how to get some if I like them.

Here's the "apes" on the SWM approx. 200mm rise and the new kickstart guard from swm moto which I wish I had on both the bikes from the get go. [one case holed in for repairs and some serious bites in the other]
They have been mounted with collets in the holes to take pressure off the clutch case. This case has been welded before.

I'd rather be a D grade participant than an A grade spectator....
