Wow, going back to 1985 for me. Started on a Bultaco Sherpa T, painted it several times, it hurt me several times. Then trials nirvana, Yamaha TY350 mono shock. Bought it off Generator George Nadle in Plano Texas. That bike evolved into a John Shirt wonnabe. My first new bike was then on to the Fantic 307, really the best balanced bike I ever owned. I would watch a half hour of MASH every evening in the garage balancing on a dead engine. The KeeRoo sucked, I hated that bike. Then Aprilla's came next, the yellow and blue Climber I called the John Deere. It could climb anything as long as a turn was not required. Then and finally the Gas Gas Klubber came to town with Andrew Codina. Been riding Gas Gas since. Dale Malesak has been incredibly good to me for a long long time, always there on race day. I think I have owned 9 Gasers but really lost count. I think if I didn't ride a Gas Gas, I would ride a Beta but team Sherco is very well organized and Ryan Young is the man.

Trials bikes all look the same upside down.
