A wobbly return to riding the TY80 !
« on: September 05, 2010, 05:12:46 AM »
   We bought the ' heap-o-junk ' TY80 back in 2003 and my two girls were slightly interested in riding it.

   So the bike has sat pretty much unloved in the garage since !

   However, today my eldest daughter decided that she would like to ride it again :

   We had a great time draining the carb, cleaning the jets and getting the old girl going again !

  

   Now my youngest girl wants to have a go.
   Tomorrow is going to be a good day !

She's doing alright, just need to get her standing on the pegs.

Hey I didn't know you had back yards that big in the UK ?? :)

 10 times the size would be nice !

 A back yard is only any good if you can get your 490 maxed out in top gear in it !!
