Fun with Outright Junk

Last Sunday, NMTrailboss and I took my old beater Reflex out for some goofing off after trials practice on our Montesa 4RT's.
Notice Gordy in the background celebrating the end of his practice.....






Start off with small stuff. Man, this thing is heavy!



A small ledge...




Followed with a semi-steep down, made even more fun with drum brakes



A nice overhang to zap up. BIG unload to get the rear tyre on the rock!!



NMTB tries it out.



Showoff!!



Dropoff for the 'Boss



It may be heavy, but it sure is slow!



'TB up a sandy, rubble strewn uphill.....



Now he's beginning to enjoy it!



After about 30 minutes of goofing off, NMTA Champ rider Sammy Fastle wanted to try out the old heap. Sammy is so young (15!) that we don't think he has ever ridden a trials bike with two shocks!



Now that's just wrong! Note the look on Sammy's face!



We packed it in on that note.

Fun can be had on your old junk too. Ride it, don't hide it!

Nice shots brewtus! Playing on the Reflex was a fun way to end the day. Who knew we'd have enough fun to keep riding it for a couple more hours and 75 photos!! Thanks for posting the pics!

Gordy expressed no interest in riding OJ. He left before we started. If he ever swings a leg over it, I'll try to record it!

If you want a thread on modifying the Reflex/TLR for trials, there is lots of info on the Trials Central forums.
While I'm here, what do the HD rants have to do with any of this? Spare us.
