Season greetings

Postby cobbadiggabuddyblooo » Tue Dec 21, 2021 12:35 pm

Just wishing all forum members a merry and safe Xmas and happy new yr.
May no longer physically own a trx any longer but it will always be a part of me.

Same to you cobba and everyone else. I'm overcompensating your lack of TRX with currently owning 4 so nothing to worry about! :roll:

Hi everyone!

Also from me a very merry Christmas - and don't eat too much!
(otherwise you will experience a phenomenon called "shrinking leathers" next time you go for a ride ...)

@cobba:
A pity that you had to sell your TRX ... but all things have their time and nothing stays the same.
Hope you find an other bike which better fits to your needs / physis.

Thanks Holer,
Already picked up a 1989 Honda Transalp in excellent condition from Trator sales ... :lol: :lol:
I finally got to build the trx I’ve always wanted in this last one. Only regret was not getting in any track days on it. A few local forum members have offered one of their TRX’s if I ever need to taste that awesome feeling of a trx once again.

Seasons Greetings to all of you who still frequent this forum.
Not many active members these days, and with the retirement of some who were very active, I expect the forum to become even quieter.
I'm still managing what little I can of the forum, but I haven't heard from Jak in over a year, and it's two years since I offered to take responsibility for running the show.
Many thinks are broken and inaccessible to me to try and fix, so please forgive the odd post in the wrong sub-forum, I can't even move them any more.
It's summer in Australia, currently 27c and 35%RH, perfect weather for riding whatever bike you have.

Have a wheelie great Christmas.

Hey dicky!

Thanks a lot for nice picture in the season greetings!

And thanks a million for your efforts and help keeping this forum still alive!

At the mo I'm a little bit tired (it's noon now) having got the turbo boost in my body yesterday afternoon. My wife got it the day before so is ahead of me and has already recovered.

Quite quiet Christmas greets from Munich!

Merry Xmas Dicky. Your input has been invaluable to keeping the forum alive.
You deserve a medal mate.
You do know that Jak is actually a CIA agent and It’s her efforts as a part of the “conspiracy theory” to reek havoc and rebellion amongst the trx enthusiasts. :lol: :lol: :lol: It’s all a part of the “ arms for oil deal “ struck with the Saudi’s back in the 70’s...

It’s a first gen (87/88) and the guy who owned it for the 33 yrs was a mechanic and machinist so what well looked after. 50,000 km on the clock and 20,000km ago he put in a Wiseco big bore kit taking it from 580 to 630 plus some port work. Recently rebuilt front and rear suspension and has new chain/sprockets/ brakes, disc and lines. New tyres and battery so just waiting to get it registered to ride it home.
Nice tidy original looking bike but I’ve already got new coils and ignition on their way from Ignitech.
Original owner is now in a nursing home and I intend keeping this one till I’m incontinent, being spoon fed and have no idea who I am.. :lol: :lol: :lol:
