      +1 to that! Let's see some more of the fun you have out there. Show us why we should be out there.

          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.

                      Ladies first


                      and pre-teens


                      most of these pics were taken at a CMA National event my wife and I hosted last year, we have some small videos and if I can figure out how to post them I will. Next event is Ioco B.C. May 14 and 15 (near Port Moody) if anyone is looking to do a road run in the Vancouver area, starts around 9:00, this is your big chance to see it live. Entry fee to ride but free to spectate, you might need to sign a waiver because you will be standing within a few feet of the action. Introduce yourself to #51 if you attend.

                        I am not showing this to my daughter...then she will start with the "can I, can I, can I...", not that she isn't already about a scooter for her 14th birthday (teens can ride them here in Alberta...learners license at 14 here...too young IMO)...but this she would want now...and I would have to join her, can't have my 12yo better at riding than I am...

                        Looks like an absolute blast...that can be next years "can I, can I, can I..."

                        Later.

                            Amazing stuff. I want to learn to ride dirt in general! Thanks for sharing the photos and making me appropriately jealous.
