    Thumbs up Too old !!! older then 56 ?

    As for the chub part, Trials is a full body exercise!
    me:
    & here's a riding partner going clean on the same rock, he's 58 y.o
    notice the one and one finger,
    that's how it should be done, Not like the training course guys teach you!

    Want to learn to ride so well the motorcycle test is just a joke, here is my best friend 2 years before he took his motorcycle training course: ...former skateboarder


    same rock from a different angle just so you can see how big that rock really is:


    Another one of me:


    The cool thing about hosting Trials events is you get to mark out sections for the expert riders to attempt, here's one that has a 15 foot run at a 12 foot, undercut rock face. ...think a motorcycle could ride up that?


    ...the key is 3rd gear from a dead stop, rev it up and drop the clutch

    It takes big stones to ride big rocks like that one, first guy to make it has the rock named after him

    Time to take my dog Diesel for a run:


    I'll see if I can find some pictures of some really rotund riders for you later
    They do exist and have a real traction advantage
    ...did I convince you yet ?

    I love watching, too, but I've never been tempted to try it. Years of falling off of horses were enough self-abuse for me.

    Kudos to you for what you're doing - those are some great photos!

    I gave up riding horses long ago, they kept throwing me off and I really couldn't blame em.

    Too dangerous anyway, no handlebars, no brakes and the damn foot pegs aren't very well attached

    Impressive, to be sure! I'm your age, but significantly less lanky... Also, have not seen many ladies in the sport (though I'm sure there are some). I'd love to see some video, too.
