Ha...got you to look.



I agree that posting on TON is a great idea. TON has many features including RECENT POSTS. This is what I look at. Then one can find ALL the recent posts.



We developed Yahoo Groups in other moto areas to migrate off TON cause they got mad at us for having too much fun. One thing the yahoo trials group ISNT is to "frisky."



Other than my posts about Gay Trials......



I recommend folks use TON to post on.



SO, to start this dance I will copy all of my YAHOO messages now to TON.



Ptttthat....



So there.



Then when a pile of riders show up you can all blame me...

And Androo!

All for this renewed PR interest from folks. Trialmasters should also be encouraged (even advertise it) to allow dirtbikes on the Novice line at their events, or liberal in bike sharing from newbies, as most already are.

I just sold my 06 Beta, and after this weekend its owner said several more will likely be in the used trials bike market. Anyone out there needing about $3000 or less for their bike to upgrade to a newer one, now could be a chance to clean 'em up.

I'm also hearing rumors of an annual Central Texas trials shootout near Gonzales, anyone hear this as well?

I ain't forgettin you Daryl. You been the voice of trials far longer than me.

But I am all over this stuff and yes, we need to work to get more folks to understand trials. I predict a lot of offroad racers that enter the A class at the Concho Enduro this year will shortly there after be looking for trials bikes!!!!

There is a trail that is now known as Kerry's Decline.....

Once they finish 3 miles of this they will definately want to practice more on trials bikes!!!

hahahaa

Re: TON o Crap!


Well see "pullin and pushin" are just another symptom of....

GAY TRIALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (for you "lurkers" there is a thing known as GATE trials. You will have to come ride trials to understand anymore.....

Hahahaahah......

Uh, I turned off the Yahoo PUSH a long time ago. My lil phone would start
SMOKIN from all the junk pushed to it.

TON is simple. I click it open on occassion. There resides everything and all
the offroad community can see it.

Yahoo groups is good for "us only" discussion...which really doesn't have any
purpose other than "hiding" the already hidden "3 guys that ride trials" from
the rest of the off road community.

Comeon out of the "trap" and take a walk on the TON Trail.

You will get less foof in your email box and others can peek in and maybe get
picked. Just look...I got Spermy to post.

We need more people to ride trials sos we have people to sell used bikes to. It
is simple.

With not a lot of back patting....I kinda have had a lot to do with bringing
folks in and expanding our happy lil group. Not that others haven't but I have
a long history with off road motorcycling in Texas.

Take a look at the folks I brought in and while I may not have done so much to
help the National at Texanna......it was I that brought the trials bike out at
Carl's request, got Wayne and Kerry interested and gee from all of that....a
National followed!!

SOOO....migrate to TON guys and gals. Lets get those dirty bikers
interested!!!!!!

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!!!
