I was the not so proud owner of a Honda TL 250. Her nickname was the "SLUG". Weighed about 235 full of gas bone stock. As a project removed 28 pounds from that machine and also turned it into a California street legal duel purpose machine. Total loss head and brake lights. Dry cell. Just fabbed and swapped aluminum parts for steel. Super Trapp and the usual. Actually slow handled better than our old heavy Cota 250. Another slug. But our Cota had that two plug hole head. Compression release that was fun to pretend was a Jake Brake coming down long steep hills. But ... that Cota junker would actually start backwards. Fun to drive around backwards at the Trials Meet pits. Figure eights. Figure eights backwards. Sounded funny. Smoked. The Honda got 428 chain and sprockets for 530 chain and sprockets? I think. Too long ago. 1979. 17 tooth counter sprocket. Still was lousy as a pure trials bike but did pretty good as a tight woods bike. Easy to re jet/needle that carb for high altitude trail riding. Had that weird gear step trials 5 speed tranny. Slow going. Sadly I sold her. Long ago, far away. Were we ever that young? Now old and cooted.
