Default GasGas txt125 for short lady rider for Hard Enduro

Hi guys.
Just thought i would share.
We decided to up the wife's game a bit from doing the usual Enduro stuff here, to the more Hard Enduro ones so I took her to some of the loops we did at the last National Enduro.
The little txt125 with a seat fitted and a custom subframe seem to do very well actually.
The bike is not allowed in ALL the races here due to it being a trialsbike and the rear tire, but I'm still looking at the rear tire options to see if we can get her into those events too.
Maybe someone else on here has a short wife/girlfriend/child that want to get into the hard stuff and could find this useful. At the very least, this bike made her confidence just shoot through the roof. Maybe something to consider.
I'm also pretty sure the GasGas Contact would work even better. Especially now that it has estart!

So if you have a short spouse or a kid that want to start playing in the rough, before you opt for another brand/bike, maybe give the Contact a proper consideration.

Some of her Shenanigans:

I would suggest you take a look at Mitas C18 (single green stripe) or EF07 (double green stripe).

I run those on my bikes for enduro. I have a few in the garage and have tried to see how they would fit.
They are however too wide to fit in the swingarm gap on the txt.

Epic tires those.

Nice video, that trail would be difficult for most people. At 4.40 she really launched it..LOL. That was a good job on her part for not giving up!
