You have to do a jap zap on that! if you dont know what that is, you need RYP's training video #1.

Even that lug of a bike 4rt, should jump right up that.

That's exactly what we were doing, O' sage one.. Note the front tire being driven into the upper corner of the ledge. The picture does not really depict how slope/camber/length of the slab. We (more to the point, I) worked on it until it became easier.

Now lay ribbon across it, and I'll fall right off of it again.......

I was "unsure" with the photo, lol if maybe you just had that much trouble getting the front end that high, on that heavy ol tessa... (giggling so hard to myself I cant hardly type, so yeah I am joking with ya.)

also it was for other people's who might read, what the technique you were working on.

Let's not go there Sting!


You ever had a rock that should be very simple, but just couldn't seem to ride it correctly? That was that rock for brewtus and I yesterday (and for me for the last two years!). We both rode bigger and more technical stuff during the day, there was just one evil rock giving us fits!!

Usually if the 'tessa doesn't go over the rock, it just breaks it into pebbles and rides over it anyway!!

Trials is strictly an indoor thing here in the Great White North these days!
Ontario's Amateur Trials Assoc. (ATA) had a nice display at the big Toronto bikeshow last weekend...including the new OSSA. A real jewel!









An old OSSA too!



I bought a copy of the Duke Video 2010 World Outdoor Trials Championship review.
Three hours of jaw dropping high level trials antics.

Come on spring!

I've lost track, where is the fuel tank on the new ossa again?

The front down tube is actually a fuel tank as well. Plus a mud guard.

That new ossa is seriously cool! Any particular rational for canting the cylinder back like that and switching the exhaust/intake around?

To have room for the downdraft fuel injection

I washed the Red River mud/sand/clay off from the Novice/Presidents Cup this past weekend at Bulcher TX. A top notch event held every year. A perfect riding day Sat was followed by a little nasty weather on Sun.

Yesterday, right after I crashed doing a bunny hop over a crevass, NMTrailboss said, "follow me, we are going to work on that!"

I got lost and enjoyed every minute of it.

I'm guessing that ever now and then that place looks like a raging river!
