This trials stuff has me hooked

Just finished the last event of the season. Had a blast cool terrain to ride. I've still got a ways to go in terms of my riding but I'll keep working at it.

Oh yeah and I'm hoping this helps too.... New to me Sherco 3.0 added to the stable.

That seat looks really uncomfortable! Can you balance on one wheel and hop across rocks and shit yet?

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

You are as bad as my wife. She keeps asking me when I'm going to be able to ride on top of logs length wise. The answer is NO I've got a long way to go still. Lol

Skills are improving but floater turns, rear wheel and front wheel hops I still don't have yet. This bike is going to take some getting used to. Completely different than the Gas Gas. 2 Stroke 300 so lots of power and throttle control is key. Plus it weights about 40 lbs less than the Gas Gas. So I hope to get there. I need to make it to the Ryan Young school. I may try to fit that in over the winter months.

The thing I like the most about trials is how every place you ride feels 2 - 3 times bigger. We don't exactly have large riding areas around here. With these bikes I can ride areas for hours that would have me bored in minutes on the KTM.
