  1. Goggles or not?

    I sweat a lot and safety glasses don't work for me, as they are closer to your face and fog up. I use Scott over the glasses goggles. I don't wear glasses, but they space the lenses further from my face.
  2. YAMAHA have a new TY

    It's only an endo.... If you flip over!
  3. TRS 125 riding impressions?

    http://www.trsmotorcycles.com/TRRS1252018 There is a "ONE" model of the TRS 125. You can see the differences.... carb, shock etc in the spec sheet. I'm guessing with the limited numbers of 125's sold, Jim Snell decided to just bring in the "RR" model this year.
  4. TRS 125 riding impressions?

    Thank you for the offer! I don't think I'll make those this year. Are you going back next year to TTC for Trials Training Days? I'm planning on next year. I forgot to add... Congratulations on the new bike and enjoy!
  5. Arthritic fingers ?

    Plus one on both! S3 digit levers work best for my old arthritic hands!
  6. TRS 125 riding impressions?

    I'm right in the same age range and and been riding trials for 2 years. I have owned newer Gas Gas and Scorpa 125's. The newest generation of 125's will do just about anything an aged Novice/Intermediate rider needs to do and I imagine the TRS 125 is right there with them. I had a Yamaha TY175 which is an awesome bike, but a new 125 is so much easier to ride and I sold the TY to concentrate on riding modern trials. I hope to get a ride on a TRS 125 sometime, but my local TRS dealer doesn't plan on having one this season. My '18 Scorpa 125 Factory is everything I want and need right now anyway! Go buy one, you won't regret it!
  7. Best trials bike for 2018?

    125 is a keeper for me!
  8. Best trials bike for 2018?

    I love how you always come back to how much you like your wife's GG125! I think you should sell the 4RT and get a 125 of any brand!
  9. YAMAHA have a new TY

    I think Yamaha still has a bit of a relationship with Scorpa, even with its new owner Sherco. The very one off TYS250F for the Japanese National Series, has had some Scorpa bits still sprinkled in it.
  10. Compression Release

    Tryals Shop just had 4 different SY250 in for pre season maintenance. Mike was the importer, and there isn't much he doesn't know about them. I'm sure you have spoken to him. He said this was about the easiest trials bike to start ever, with its long kick lever. You might want to look into your motor a bit more if it is hard to kick?
  11. YAMAHA have a new TY

    No place to warm your hands? Check out that giant heat sink under the rear fender! I want one of these, when the have a consumer version!
  12. Compression Release

    R&D Husky in Australia, used to do this compression release mod to WR360 head. It was from a 2T lawnmower engine.
  13. CMA. Dead Man Walking?

    Surprised to see that TDN still has a Jury, as most FIM events (Including the ISDE) have switched to the simplified Race Control structure.
  14. NO STOP rule implemented in X-Trial

    The format is 6 sections in a row 6 minutes, if it's the same as X-Trial World Championship rounds. You get a 5 for the last section if run out of time, so pressure to keep moving. Also the "Leaning" rule for using the sump, makes them want to risk it a bit. Lowest time is the tie breaker, so oddly if two riders tie and both fail in section 6, the rider who fails the soonest in the section wins the tie. Seems like the rider who cleared more obstacles in the section, before the failure should win the tie!
  15. TRS 125 riding impressions?

    TRS USA just posted that first 125's are shipped to USA. '18 production models will not have the power valve. Only a limited number of Factory supported 125's in competition, will have the PV engine. They want to test it and refine the mapping for the engine before releasing it.
