Exclamation Calling all 1983 to 2009 model TZ owners!!

.
I am just about ready to begin researching/writing Volume 2 of "The Bible", which will cover TZs built between 1983 and 2009.

Does anyone have any magazine articles on these bikes, both 125 or 250?

Are there any guys who own and/or race one of them, or did in the past?
I need your experiences with these machines.
What were they like to own, maintain and ride?
How much did the bike cost you?
How many were around in the day?
Were they competitive?
Where there any problems with them?

Also, I need stuff like copies of:
  • Owners Manuals
    Parts Lists
    Magazine articles
    Factory Service Bulletins
    Photos
    Advertisements
    Ignition maps
    Exhaust dimensions/diagrams
    Portmaps
    anything

You WILL be included in the "Acknowledgements" section of the new book, just like all contributors were in the first volume.

Thanks in advance for any assistance provided. It's the contributors who made the first book such a success.

Cheers,
Greg
