Click on these links for a "hot lap" of the TZ350 and 250 Website:                                     

This section of the TZ350 and 250 Website is set aside for stories and articles written about our  motorcycling experiences.

Some were written by professional journalists and are published here with their permission (where they also hold copyright, as well as if we have been able to actually locate them to ask permission), and others are by average guys like the rest of us.


Picture: J-Pierre Plouvel on his TZ250 H at Le Vigeant in France, 2007 competing in the French Championships.

If you've just had a great day's racing, or finished restoring a bike, or have a funny anecdote about the process you went through to get hold of your bike, whatever, why not document it and have it posted here for all the world to see?

Submissions to this section are most welcome, just  Email the Webmaster with your story and a few photos if possible and fame (but not fortune) will be yours!!
