That's probably one of the most reposted videos here, but I absolutely love watching it.

Let me loose about 500lbs and I'd love to get a bike like that.

I'm betting he started on BMX by the way.

Wasn't this guy just on superbikes performing in daytona? And if i remember right the bike is only 150 lbs

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Trials bikes are all over the place. AMA District 17 has a whole series of Trials events nearby and there is an all trials club Northern Illinois Trials Riders Organization or N.I.T.R.O for short that runs a bunch of events. They can point you to several trials oriented or specialist shops in the area. Check out their website. There is also a very proficient trials rider who periodically runs a trials school at Byron. I ride vintage trials in the District and in AHRMA. It's a blast!

I just want one of those bikes for throwing around the neighborhood.

But then, I'd get more exercise if I did it on the Stumpjumper. LOL

Maybe if you rode it like this ...

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Every time I see these trials bike videos, it makes me want to give it a try. Trials riding looks like so much fun.

It is!...BUT It is not as easy as it looks. I've not ridden modern trials but I ride vintage, which is a little different because the bikes are not as advanced and vintage is not as "acrobatic". No "stopping or hopping", you must maintain forward motion in vintage trials.
It is a great training sport for any type of racing, especially dirt racing like MX and Hare Scrambles. You don't have to have a trials bjke to try it, just a trail bike with trials tires will get you in the trail bike class or vintage if it's a 1979 model or older.
The first time I competed I was amazed at the skill involved. About a year later I won my class and had to move up a skill level. What a thrill it is when you "clean" your first section and then to finally trophy!
I highly recommend trials to anyone looking for a laid back form of competition and to improve ones riding skills.
