      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:

          No sense in posting a flyer because to comply with covid rules we can't have spectators and riders must pre-register.

          MadMatt ! are you still riding? pre-register Sept. 26-27 2020 Arden

            I went to a Honda dealer this am. I walk in the showroom, and see a MONTESA!

            Anyway, as I’m twisting the rear tire knobbs, I notice the rear wheel spokes. I saw this and thought “hummm...”

            What cha all think?

              EDIT~ The front wheel was laced typically.

                2020 300RR ?

                I want a 2021 301RR really bad but I think you might get one easier then I can.

                ... the spokes work great. Actually the whole bike works great, I think you should buy it
                BTW: it's 75 pounds lighter then that Honda monkey bike and whole lot better in every way.

                Just reach over the rear fender, put your (gloved) fingers between those spokes and pick up the bike by the rear wheel, you'll see.

                  Rear wheel is tubeless, intended to be run with only a couple of pounds air pressure, the tire will slide on the rim occasionally. The front runs a tube with 4 or 5 psi and has a rim lock so the tire does not slide on the rim :/ because that would be very bad for braking.

                  All of the major brands now use that same wheel setup because it is so light and extremely reliable.
                  ... the RR model also gets you the thin wall wheel hubs that are a little lighter. Front forks are aluminum stanchion tubes.

                  BTW: the rear sprocket has the holes covered with a sticker so the minder does not accidentally put their fingers in there and lose them.
