And now, for something not quite completely different

Yes, I fancied something for long distance, trail bike, trials and that maybe more reliable (we’ll shall see)

Ebay strikes again.

Gas Gas Pampera

Been thinking for a while of getting something a little more usable for general trials and though I sold my Beta REV3, I’d not been tempted by a modern trials bike since. Partly because the twinshock’s I’d ridden have been pretty relialble, but also partly because I like road trials and natural sections that don’t involve hopping

Out of the van

So, with this in mind the Gas Gas Pampera / Beta Alp / Yamaha XT225 Serow / Honda CRF 230 (*delete where applicable) decision making process, but plumped for the more trial orientated trail bike, rather than trail orientated.

..and the stand.

Full review to come, on how the bike is set up etc, but it starts first kick and manages to get up and down the car (the steps, rather than the ramps, that is)
