Here is a Yamaha that I never knew existed from 1975 - and I was working for them back then - it’s a Prototype YZ 125 TWIN. They likely used the motor from the very successful 100 twin which sold like Hot Cakes in North America.


A blast from the past - I loved the look of those Six Day bikes - AJS- Matchess- Triumph - to me they still look great. - Never did get to ride one though.

This just popped up from 4 years ago - We had just started selling TRS bikes.

So in GO PRO news - My son in law (an expert in this stuff) stopped by and was I think a bit surprised that I had managed to figure out how to work the one he had bought me for my birthday - ( He could have bought me a bottle of Scotch - but this was way better) -We spent some time   chatting about the all new to me world of the Go Pro- and watched the clips I took on Sunday -  He was really impressed ( as was I) at how  the Handlebar mounted unit coped with the rough terrain -  amazing how I’m getting more toys and enjoyment  at an age when many are in old folks homes - The rather strange thing about our ride - was that it was my first on the Fantastic 2021 TRS Gold Edition. - but I was more intent on getting footage to show later of just where I go to my lovely wife Babsy. -  The Goldie ?? WOW!
This new camera technology - is fantastic for families that sometimes sit at home and wonder where the man of the house really goes on a Sunday.


This is a great shot of Bob Hannah - I met him at a Yamaha show back in the day - he said money can buy anyone. - And I guess it did - but his best years were always on Yamaha.

Not quite so smokey in the Valley this morning - I can see across the Lake from my office window through the haze. Hopefully it will improve move by tomorrow when we are going riding .


Not available until late November - but we still have a couple of  2020’s for sale - save big time by calling us NOW.
