    You might like to see this nicely sorted home build that was here today, I've ridden it up some pretty big stuff but omg the brakes suck.

    :| I think he DNF'd

    lol The trial was brutal hard partly because it rained right at start time, 29 riders scores were high lots of crashes,
    but it did get easier as the day went on, we started finding ways to get around the impossible parts.
    I won first in Grand Veteran class with 84 points lost yaaa... that's a lot of 5's and 3's :| but I had a lot of cleans too.
    Apparently we set the D and B lines up a little too hard.

    Ya Jordan Szoke took first today with 66 points,
    Jon English 76, Brian Wojnaroski 122, Kevin Cordy 124
    Jake Stapleton rode the Advanced line with 77 faults
    Some serious impressive riding talent right there.

    Grand Veteran... do they make orthotic riding boots? What’s next after that class..... or does that come in the form of an epitaph? You did better than I.... cleaned the shop, rode the couch and then had my biannual nap. Was still gassed from panel beating yesterday.
    I actually wouldn’t mind having a TL.

    That's not a TL Cyorg , that's a 1980's something XR200.
    TL is a nice woods bike, but the stock frame geometry makes it turn too slow.

    ... you want to wear a ball sac to a trials event Cyorg? you must live in one very queer part of the world.

    Well I do live in Canada’s answer to San Francisco, so not likely anyone would notice if I was to don something like that.... with the exception of the bride who would most likely reach for that 12ga and a couple loads of rock salt.

    I figured there was something off with that bike... a 250 would be my preference and yes only for farting around in the woods. Trials riding is above my pain threshold. A good friend is setting up 3 day guided tours in the interior, so may actually have to buy something.

    Sorry for the high jack OP.

    They are heavy and turn slow, the twin shocks will keep the insides of your legs constantly bruised, they have little to no brakes,
    and for me :/ I would probably have a heart attack trying to muscle the thing around sections.

    Hey that's no Ioco that's a gravel pit, is that where you are going to ride it? no problem you could ride a Motocrosser there.

    Not heavy enough to prevent me from picking it up or hauling it out of the mud. The slow turning matches my speed as do the brakes. Some proper linings and centring the shoes etc etc would probably make them ok for my riding. Last time I was on a motocrosser it ended badly. Given my aversion to pain a TL 250 would be ok... only thing I might miss is the electric leg in case it stalls while I’m teetering on the side of some ledge... or I’m melting my brie over the campfire and some amorous grizzly decides to take a shine to me.

    I'm probably older then you :|
    get one of these, you will do way more with it and hurt yourself way less.
    One finger clutch, one finger brake, awesome power and suspension, 160 pounds wet.



    That's 70 pounds lighter then the TL that is going to beat you up if you try to go over anything bigger then the front axle. Get one of these and you should be able to ride up a 4 foot vertical is fuel injected, easy to start, you just have to kick it up to idle speed.
