Awesome set up ! You look familiar are you a PITS member ? Tomorow going to check out a new 200 acre riding area that belongs to a friend of a friend. Its behind a major reservoir here in the Bay Area California.

Yep, I ride with PITS. Last pictures of the Techno. Had to sell to help pay for the Evo.

Backyard and frontyard trials was in full swing last Sunday. NMTrailboss came down at the last minute and we rode the hell out of the yard!

We laid out some ribbon in the front and made some "rules" like you have to go over all three rocks before doing the rest of the section.



Way harder than it at first looks. Here is NMTB trying various methods.



















Some balance with a floater turn stuff.




It really doesn't take much to get a good workout. We worked on some stuff up there all morning.


Then moved out back and he grabbed Deb's 125 to "try it out".







Back on the 4RT.




Deb on her first log crossing!





I finally got the courage to try my newly installed splatter wall.




Then moved over to this kicker (which is too close for a splatter but thought I would give it a go anyway with some kind of roll up deal-e-o).



It worked but scared the hell out of me as I knew it would take some extra effort and the rear tire hit really high and I carried this sick (but un-planned) wheelie clear down the backside. I thought that the front kissed the wall but from the pic, I don't think that it did.

Some of us have commented on that phenomenon before. Sometimes when you go up a big (for us) up, you just get on the top and aren't really sure how it all happened.

Next week, we go to the mountains of Taos for some real stuff.

GER, You just need to hook the bike up and come on up to A53. Only 30 min up the road.

Seriously though, great talking to you the other night. Look forward to riding with you soon.

Great stuff out in NM. Let's see the side yard set up.

So I was gazing out the back door last evening as The Wife was in the kitchen doing what wives do. I made an off handed comment on how I'd like to bring in some large rocks, some boulders, logs, & maybe a Tonka truck tire & build a practice area. She laughed, but not in a disapproving tone. Should I capitalize & go for it, or check her with a serious question? I'm thinking I could pitch it as saving money on fertilizer & maintenance, & I wouldn't be yelling at the dogs for digging. In fact, thier digging would only help. What do you think?

BTW, I already know the line about asking forgiveness later, so don't give me that.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Worked on the splatter a bit tonight and I'm not liking how low the rear tire hits. I think I need to delay the take-off just a bit and maybe slower too.

You got negative lift, timing all wrong. As it is if you rode that big ass kicker as a roll up you might just jump over the whole thing! Try a small clay brick with a little dirt over it to just make a bump. I like the film idea though to see mistakes and improvements!
