Do you own a 1990s TM?

There’s moves afoot to have a get-together of owners and bikes early next year. Probably in the Hunter Valley (where else?).

Even if you can’t make it, there’s still interest in tracking down/accounting for the early bikes.

If you are interested, then send me a message and I will point you at the right people.

Hey Spac, I don't but if you are not already across it there are some owners in the "90s Retro Enduro Aus" group.

Yep, that group seemed to be how this idea found enough people to be worthwhile.

Currently looking like I am going to be the biggest muppet there, by a long margin - lots of “names” in the FB messenger group.

Just blame the equipment....bikes old, the tyres are worn, the oil ratio is not right, jetting, suspension valving, handgrips....

Won’t be able to blame the bike when everyone is going to be on the same basic thing!

It hasn’t seen daylight in three years, hasn’t been ridden in at least six...

Great idea nonetheless. Good on you for getting something going. There are some old names in there that I've forgotten over the years. Eyebrow raiser for me. Love seeing the old photos of the day.

Don't worry Spac, I'll be there. I was just as concerned as you. It's a bit of a who's who from the 90's enduro scene.
