Interesting. If it doesn't involve chaps, leather vests or saddlebags, let me know.

No problemoh Spermy man. At ANY trials bikes are available for folks to throw a leg over and try goin "feets up." We JUST got done with an event in City Park. The Texas Trials series starts up 2012. Unfortunately, there are just too many cool events now in Texas. The overlap is tough. And I have been tagged to help put on the Concho Enduro...

BUT you just say the word and I will bring my lil trialer out for you to give a try on.

We all started backwards. We should have all STARTED on trials bikes like in Europe. Learning trials takes time. Very different than "big bikes." But the techniques are very, VERY useful and will make a much better rider out of any dirt bike rider.

DeeKay is very correct. Wish I would have started on a trials then move up to big bikes from there. That explains why the Knighter and Taddy are whipping the world in the off-road/extreme events.

woohoo gang. See how stinkin easy this is. You can post on new threads or old threads. You don't get 10 linked replies that scroll for days....

Think of TON as trials with several lines and Yahoogroups as GAY TRIALS.....

Hahhahahaha

My simple response is to turn off the pushy and now my email box is CLEAN. Not only that but all I have to do is set up a book makr to active topics and VOILA I can see what you feet uppers are up too.

Yave fun at City Park gang. Got stuff to do to get ready for 12 season.

Avast TON...look out here come the MotoTrialers!!!


deekaying...still
