You do learn to crash good after a few hundred times, but trials bike crashes are no worse then falling off your feet. The riders are the lucky ones, all it costs to ride here is to sign a waiver acknowledging that I am a totally irresponsible person, there is no other place like here to ride dirt bikes, that's why I do it. Had to bush build the special tool for my studs just now, happy to say it turned out as good as the ones you buy required a sacrificial nut driver, an angle grinder and a hand file to make it perfect. Plan is to invite a dozen or so riders out this weekend to explore new trails, build a big camp fire, put a bunch of meat on the smoker for lunch and ride everything we can we been doing that most weekends for 3 years now, it's a blast.Lucky Guy!
I was attempting to get that E-Bike. I do want to get a trial bike to see what I can do. It's not any of the riding that concerns me. It's the expected get-offs. For example see youtube video Trial&Fail!
Sounds right. I don't even care if someone gets me a gift just don't be a dick all the other days of the year & we are good.Since the season of gift-giving is upon us, I think that it's appropriate to recall the words of a very wise man who once said:
" Don't value the gift by the value of the gift - it's the thought that counts - and if the recipient doesn't appreciate that, then fuck them."
...oh, wait, that was me who said that...
Merry Xmas all.
Nice! I have been contemplating an enduro as there is a 300cc being offered up to me at the moment. I however was thinking a 200cc 2T would be more fitting at least if the size and weight are lower.Three of us rode all day today, it was a blast, snow conditions were greatly improved for both the enduro bikes and the trials bike. The snoscoot is working out great for trail grooming. I was experimenting with just a few grip studs on the front tire instead of sheet metal screws and you can really feel the grip studs improving the steering control, another 4 or 500 bucks worth of carbide tire studs should help
