I have been amazed at the percentage of people I talk to who have at least a minimal notion of what trials is. There was a bike trials rider (no idea who) on Americas Top Talent (or some such drivel) a few years back. It made an impression apparently. I keep a few photos on my computer at work, so I can show people what the fuck I am talking about, and how much of a nerd I am.
viking, I understand it was the Smage brothers that were on Americas Got Talent!

Same here with photos -- i told someone at work that my bike was 280cc (before I got the 80!) -- and they asked me if it was the bikes the Shriners ride in the parades!!! so i sent him a video clip of Toni at the world rounds and asked him if he's ever seen a shriners bike do THAT!
