Late bloomer didn't ride motorcycles till I was 28 (1980).
Moved to California and my dad had some bikes.
G5 Kawasaki 100cc
XL 175 Honda.
Went to the library to look for some books on the subject of dirt riding.
Carl Shipmans Boonie Book...Trials oriented.
Worked my ass off riding the under powered 100cc Kawi on rocky and tight trails, but I learned.
1981 IT 175
Did all the wrench report mods.
Motoed out, rode alot of tight trails and rocks.
While the IT was apart for suspension mods a friend lent me his 74 TY250.
Went to a trials school at Saddleback Park.
After riding the TY and attending the school, it was all Trials from then on.
