I have a hill behind my house that works well. I have cut down a bunch of those pesky GA pines that are in my yard and they can make good obstacles I used spikes/PVC pipe to hold them in place. It is good training for any kind of riding.
Cheers,
Doug

Nice Putts, It would be better if you replaced those cones with old beer kegs. Oh by the way you scorred a 1 in that section. Can't put you foot down when crossing a log.

This video was taken over at HighFive's house. He's got this stepped wall you can see in the video, a couple spools, a couple dirt mounds, and a few large logs to play on.

thankyou so much for this link, damn that takes me back. This program was one of the major reasons I still have a need for a trials bike. why don't they make a modern version of that?

That "Kick Start Trials" video was awesome!

Does anybody know if the 1986 Honda Reflex is allowed to be used in vintage trials competitions?

Wow, it is really cool. I can't believe that kind of thing hasn't stayed popular and hasn't caught on in the US at all.
