    Thumbs up

    2 days of incredible practice riding, this was taken just hours ago


    Recently discovered 'pebble' is now officially the 'Joshua Rock'

    These guys rode Ontario's hardest sections today like pro's
    I had a blast riding, catching and getting some decent exercise

    ...sorry I didn't get more photos, was too busy riding & catching flying motorcycles

    Here's some guy teaching someone the very basic basics. He's got quite the resume too...

    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 ?
    Waaaay cool Trials (ran into this one, glad I did), and Diesel is also cool

    Rumor has it this years CMA Trials Nationals are in Quebec and then in B.C the following weekend
    … like that won't be a strenuous couple of weeks.



    to all the Trials bikes you see crossing the Prairies that week.

    Picture of a section at the Bengough National Trial statistically it was safer riding the sections then it was walking the sections:



    ... you want me to go where

    Next trial for me:



    Should be a good one, they have lots of test ride bikes going to be there too
    ... I test rode one of these on the weekend bike makes it super easy to hop the front And rear end around!
