    Which one would you buy?

    250 is plenty yep

    Which one would you buy?

    One thought might be to get a bike that some other riders near you have for tips and support, maintenance, fix it tips etc. All of the new bikes are good....But if you must force me to name a bike get a TRS Raga

    What bike ? Trrs?

    250 is plenty but I prefer a 300.

    The TRS is an excellent bike. I had one (a One 300.) If I were to get one again, I'd be sure to get the Raga mainly because I really prefer the Keihin carb.

    New to sport bike selection

    Always a hotly debated topic...I got my first taste of trials on a Gas Gas 300 and it was fine. As I was learning Trials basics I never felt scared or as if the bike was way too much. Then I bought a 280, another 280, and then 2 300's. You can do fine with a lot less engine, sure, but I think with basic throttle and clutch control a 300 will be fine. Just my opinion...

    Easy to kick over

    All my GG bikes started easily, not sure why so many have had issues. I was at TTC once and ended up kicking over the GG's for people cos they couldn't start em. My old 280 was so easy to start you could kick it over with your hand.

    New Boots

    I had to look up Dubbin.

    Which boots?

    Gaerne Balanced Oiled are great and the Alpine stars Tech are excellent too. The Gaernes are a bit more like slippers, the AS seem to offer more protection.

    They'll break in from sweat, just keep riding

    Hopping on rear wheel (Pogo) video included.

    On a good day i can put together 6-8 hops before I lose it. My record is 14. So I'm no pro at this so take this with a grain...Slow it down, and think of the move as a throw and a catch. The gas and clutch release is the throw, the rear brake is the catch. Stay back a tad more than you think you should. An incline definitely helps. It took me forever to do even one or two, just stay on it. It'll come.

    Tech 39 mm fork tube

    That's helpful Badger, thank you. Olive is available so that's what I'll get. Won't match- fits me perfectly.

    Air box lid fit - fixed, for now!!!

    Not sure if this helps but when I had mine I couldn't get it to sit flush, the back wouldn't seat properly and I fussed with it. There was a ridge that made me uneasy. Finally, I tapped it gently with a rubber mallet and it went in and stayed in. No more gap.

    Tech 39 mm fork tube

    Hey guys considering a new fork tube. I have a 2014 GG 300 Raga with the Gold forks. Question is--Does the replacement tube have to be Gold or are the colors merely cosmetic? I see they come in Olive, Titanium etc. Wasn't sure if a different color meant any more than...a different color.
