Re: Member's motorcycles

Trials bikes are something I could't get on with. I had an '08 Beta R3 270 but the left foot kicker was a right PITA. A days tuition from friend-of-a-friend Graham Jarvis, in the old lead mines above Pateley Bridge, only proved to me that I was totally crap and not cut out for the rocky stuff

Re: Member's motorcycles

I've had pretty much everything trials from every era.
Tiger Cub, Montesa, Ty's, Fantics to the Vertigo.

Thinking of restoring a DOT in trials trim, as they were made down the road from where I was born.

I had a couple of Beta's in the past, '91 Zero, couple of Rev3's and a 300 Evo.
The left foot kick start does put a lot of people off, but it ain't as bad as the old British stuff with rear brake pedal on the left and the gear shifters on the right. You need to be on the ball!

I've never met Graham, but I met Dougie Lampkin, he's Vertigos developer, ambassador and UK importer, when I bought mine you had no option but buy it from him, out of his barn.

I gave up the road bikes a few years ago, traffic, road conditions and the ever increasing numbers of knobheads on the road put me off in the end.
Last bike was a pre production, second generation Triumph Daytona 955i.
That chucked out 45hp more then the production model but handled like a National Express coach!

My old Husky is left-kick..but TALL and a 4-stroke..so takes a few "prods" ,

Since my right leg is not great.. I keep meaning to get back on the thing..

in the meantime I'm just using the 2-strokes.. as and when.

Re: Member's motorcycles

I've been to the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera too, really interesting. There's an enormous Vespa there, it's like the Spinal Tap "Stonehenge" but in reverse!

Anyway here are my bikes, a Cagiva Raptor 650 (Italian with a Japanese heart) and a Kawasaki Scorpion ER250 (pretending to be an British aircooled twin).

The Kawasaki is going on Ebay soon, it's been advertised on Car and Classic for a while with only a bit of interest.

Re: Member's motorcycles

My toy. A Puch Maxi "N". Complete with tool kit & pump. Good fun & I'm shocked how many I get when I'm out on it. I've done the big bike thing as well as Vespa & Lambretta scooter runs back in the day. This makes me smile more. Wouldn't have been seen dead on one of these once I got to sixteen though. How times change . Stewy

Great..

I had a pretty tired old Garelli at 15/16

So much so that my parents got me a Honda MT5 so I would actually make it to college

Must've done some good.. still into Italian


@Pugglt Auld Jock is a maxi fan I believe
