This is how I remember my ATGATT revelation

1986, I'm 22 and have been wearing a Fonzie jacket, cowboy boots and whatever helmet looked cool to me for several years.

Anybody on the ground?

Anybody currently at Baumholder or a recent alumni? Where is the hang out? Down in Stuttgart any weekend with good weather and the Glemseck is packed with 100 bikes. Anything like that in Baumholder?

No joke, I'm sold on the TU250. I'm selling my 81 R100 and pouring that money straight into a TU250X. It reminds of a Triumph Terrier, but with bullet proof reliability and exceptional fit and...
