I just bought a lightly used 2016 EM Sport 5.7.  I have very little trials experience; had a Cota 349 sidecar for a while.  I had a hard time getting passengers (they kept running away screaming).  So I took off the hack and rode it solo a bit.  Did a few vintage events and got hooked but never really liked the bike.  Life got in the way and I sold the rig.  I'm about to retire and this became available just as I thinned the herd (sold an FZ-09).  So far I love the convenience and simplicity of electric.  I'm looking forward to riding an event next year.

No need for sorry, thanks. From what you have told us you have had some experience, that Cota is worth a bit now if it’s still around. Your new ride looks almost new and ready to go...enjoy🙂

Cool, keep us posted on how you get on with it!

And yes, Cota 349s aren't a lot of fun for trials ... but amazing technical trail bikes :)

I've had mine over a year now ...woodn't go back to a gasser...best modification you can make....throw away the stock 9 tooth front sprocket...put on a ten tooth ...even better is an 11 tooth !

thanks!  I'm working on basics right now and not changing anything (other than leaning bars forward) until I have a clue about how to ride.  I'll put this on my to-do list though!
