2008 Scorpa TY-S200F

Scorpa Long-ride, wears 175cc decals. Titled for the street in NM. Yamaha air-cooled 4-stroke, 183 cc (IIRC) according to the embossing on the jug. Speedo calibrated in Km/h. Bought as wifey bike, rarely used. Typical cold-blooded Yamaha, like most TW-200s and small XTs I've encountered. Sloppy cable clutch. This bike chugs. Fantastic suspension. Great on extreme single-track, like riding the loop as a trials spectator, but lacks trials steering lock because of the big (1.1 gal) tank. It cries out for a Rekluse. Seat should be outlawed by Geneva Conventions on Torture. Anybody got a trials tank and bodywork that'll fit?

Question Alternative?

So if I have a few simple trail adds to my 4RT and I ride it on trails would it qualify for this thread? Or because it's not a true hybrid dose it not count?

I would think if a 210lb big suspension "non-enduro" Scorpa TRide can make it in, a trials bike with a seat is fair game.

What does ""non-enduro"" mean?

I didn't think anyone actually owned one of those in the states. Looks like a neat bike.

Laugh 4RT setup.

Got a chance to take a shot of the bike today after some snow play. My trail/trials setup. I take all the gear off when I compete.

^^^ That is similar to what I do for rides when I need extra fuel.

This may be the first twin shock bike I have ever coveted. Very nice!

This is my 1984 Honda TLR 200:



Fortunately in the UK you can use bikes on the street during daylight hours with no lights, as long as it has what's called a 'Daylight MoT' - basically it is DOT tested to prove it's road worthy, but you do not need head/tail/brake lights or turn signals fitted - essentially just DOT tyres, a horn and a licence plate fitted - it's how a lot of classic bikes are run on the street, plus various trials and enduro models.

Originally this was a red and white model (but a genuine TLR with 35mm forks and gold alloy rims, not the Reflex that was sold in the US), and I 'sympathetically' restored it a couple of years ago, completely stripping and de-lugging the frame and getting it powder-coated in satin black, together with getting the bodywork repainted in a homage to the previous generation TL's.

As I regularly use it for trail riding here in the UK, I found the original 4" drum brakes woeful on the road, and was fortunate to find a set of forks/front wheel/disc brake set-up from a TLM220, which together with an XR400 master cylinder (and clutch perch) makes for an all genuine Honda front end, with far better 'every day' performance.

As part of the refurb I also had the original hubs re-laced with new alloy rims and stainless spokes, and fitted a DEP/Sammy Miller rear silencer to replace the rusty original - the engine remains bone stock, including the original paint.
