I have always loved motorcycles, having a few off road bikes through high school as well as a street bike that was used to get me around throughout my collage years.
I knew a little about the strange looking bikes that you rode standing up, but had never spent any time on one until a neighbor asked if I would like to attend a local Trials event with him and his brother. Attending the event and seeing what a Trials bike could do and learning about the sport was all it took, I needed one.
As fate would have it a Honda TL125 happened to be parked on the street, with a For Sale sign on it as I drove home from work one afternoon, I bought it and as the saying goes, "the rest is history".
My Trials career started in 1979 with the TL125, and has lasted to this day; I enjoy the bikes, the sport, the competitions, the trail rides and most of all, the people involved with the sport of Trials.
Since becoming active in Trials I have had the opportunity to be associated with many good people, clubs, organization and events all over the US and 2 tours with the early US Women's Trials Team to Italy as part of the TDN.
In 2001 I had the opportunity to become a RYP/Sherco dealer. Since taking on the Sherco Dealership Thumbs Up Trials Supply has been a dealer for, Sherco, Scorpa, Vertigo, GasGas and Beta. As the sport and bike manufactures has evolved over the years, bike dealership opportunities have come and gone, with current offerings in Sherco, Scorpa and Vertigo Trials machines.
While Thumbs Up Trials Supply may not be dealers of all Trials machines, I have industry wide contacts for all brands of Trials motorcycles, parts and Trials related gear, being a distributor for some of the biggest US names in the sport, LewisportUSA, RYP, Tryals Shop, Rising Sun imports, over sea's Jitsie, Trials and Tribulations, dab gear and parts to name just a few.
Thumbs Up Trials Supply is not the biggest Trials shop, but we strive to be the best. Having 40 years of experience with Trials bikes, equipment and the people of the sport, if I can't help you with your Trials questions I will be the first to tell you, and I will also use all of my resources to get you and your Trials machine back out on the course and trails.
