I brought my 2007 Beta 270 just for trail riding - my trail bike (06 wr450) was getting a bit heavy in some of the tight slop we ride in.

I put rubber mounted rox risers on the bars which raise the bars 50mm (less back/arm strain and maybe a bit less control) and kills the hi rev buzz that the beta has on transport sections.

I've also put hand guards on as I was sick of having trees engage the brake or clutch for me
The Scorpa is my sons bike

We carry a 2.25 liter bottle of coke filled with extra gas. My energy always runs out before the gas does

My son and another friend have both recently brought trials bikes to trail ride as alternatives to their normal trail bikes and we are all having a ball.

I'm surprised that standing all day isnt much more tiring than the standing/sitting all day on trail bikes
These are the best days
