WetSideRider, awesome photos, thanks so much for sharing!

I'll bet you dabbed a lot less than your KTM buddies, and messed up the trail a whole lot less!

I tried the 511 with carbide studs (gripstuds.com) in the snow/ice and it's a handfull.
Now swapping the studs into the Scorpa.
Hoping to ride it more in 2013.
Im not familiar w/ that model. Is the motor basically a yamaha ttr125? Is the overall bike also slightly smaller like a ttr?
Looks super fun either way.

It's a Yamaha 125 that Scorpa stroked to 143.
Beats me why they call it a 175, seems to be a Euro thing.
(My Husky TE511 is a 470)
Don't know if it's same motor as the TTR or not, there is no e-start.
Yes, it is tiny, but has 18/21 wheels.

dry weight is listed as 74.5-kg
fuel cap = 2.9 liter
I found an article that says these are a TTR based motor.

Garcia Ridge 2/2/13

I went riding with a buddy yesterday. We've been trying to get together for a month or so but schedules have conflicted until yesterday. We rode the Garcia Ridge trail which is 5 miles long to a dead-end at the Machesna Wilderness boundary which is where this photo was taken. Matt's riding a Suzuki 350 and I'm on my Gas Gas of course. It was a great ride. In the distance you can see the Pacific Ocean.

A friend is letting me borrow his 1992 Gas Gas until I get the cash to buy it. I've wanted a trials bike for years so I jumped at the offer. Anyway my wife started trail riding last year on a TTR125 and she is pretty slow still. I figured this will be a fun way to follow her while she learns. I can practice wheelies, climbs rocks, trees, etc., on the side of the trail. I putted around in 3nd gear following her on my WRR250R last year and it got kind of boring haha. She rides a DR200 also and does good on roads and dirt roads, but tight trails scare her still.

So yes I will be trail riding some on a trials bike this year. I might try to rig up a quick release seat for days I need to sit down or for rest stops.

Just about the same thing for me and my wife, CRF230L for the dual sport, however she has a Gas Gas TXT 125 for her trail/trial ride. :)

As for a seat, I was thinking of one but my wife ended up liking this one more (will take longer to get thought)... http://www.buttrest.co.uk/

just a thought... and good luck finding something.

jonnyc21, I'd be very careful about the Butt Rest seat on your wife's Gas Gas. Both models sit too far back on the fender/airbox and will probably end up cracking one or both of those components, especially if your wife jumps the bike at all. There's one listed on Ebay which would be a better choice as it sits in the bottom of the Gas Gas "valley" which has the kind of strength you need for a seat. Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/GAS-GAS-SHER...9e0e17&vxp=mtr

Seeing that it is attached with Velcro and I can mount it lower that what is in the picture, that and my wife isn't tall and wouldn't be able to sit on it if I put it up that high any way. Because of that I am not sure if I need to be concerned or not, but we are still considering our other options.

If we don't get the buttrest for her I think we will get her this one. http://www.lewisportusa.com/gasgas_seat.htm

That's a good one as well, the only potential down-side to it is it's more permanently mounted so air filter cleanings could be overlooked due to the extra work of dismounting the seat?

Intresting, the way it looked to me when I was checking out the mounting was a bracket in the front with only one bolt in the rear to remove the hole thing... did I miss something?
