Well that figures. I suppose it's never been any different, there's just a lot more competing for a young man's attention these days.

Still would like to hear more about this..... any insight as to why this is true would be useful to the discussion at hand, I think.

Of course, 5 different riders might give 5 different reasons.

Can only be a good thing.

Good exposure for the sport, to have a trials bike sitting in a bunch of showrooms. Especially if they are handing out nice glossy brochures, too.

Hopefully they bring in lots of them!!!

Reiger - more questions than answers!

This weekend I flipped my Reiger shock so it has the reservoir at the bottom, away from the heat of the exhasut. Since mine is a "race" model Gas Gas it only has one adjuster (at end of the rod) and...

I think the 250 versions of any of the manufacturers will "bark" a little less, too, when compared to, say, the 300's. Gas Gas is pretty quiet.
