The Beta 200 is so easy to control, people will think you're cheating. I had a Gas Gas 280. When I sold off Gas Gas and got my Beta 200, my score dropped so significantly, it surprised me and most...

I found that the best way to gain skills on a trials bike is to get out about 45 weekends a year and just practice. I used to ride only at the events and always got my ass handed to me. Then, in...

If you're just starting out in trials, don't do as I did. I'm a power hog and wanted a big bore bike. After starting out on an old Beta, I wanted more power. Long story short, after several Adam Raga...

Buy a modern bike(2000 or newer), and go have fun. I started in 2002 with a 1989 Beta TR34R. It was OK until I got on a 99 Montesa. I've been on modern bikes ever since. Modern bikes are easier to...

The "blue" stuff may be GM Auto trak 2. That is what the Gas Gas Pro model has in it from the factory. I keep coming back to Auto trak 2 in my '07 Raga because it seems to work best for me.

In '07 I bought a Beta 200 new in the box. From day one it got nothing but VP race fuel, and full synthetic pre-mix at 80:1. More than 350 hours later, that bike had more compression than I have...

I have a 2007 Adan Raga Special. it likes Elf Moto 2 XT Tech. I use VP fuel, also. In my Gas Gas, it's a match made in heaven. And the exhaust has a wonderful aroma.

When I was thinking about getting a dirt bike, I was led to a trials bike. I lost my desire for a big bike. The fun factor far outweighs the draw-backs. And, the best part is, you don't need very...
