yeah, this is at my dad's house and he was a bit nervous about it. In the pic he's actually replacing a block that I knocked off the wall earlier!! My brother and I are joint owners of the Gas Gas, we picked it up back in September and it has been so much fun! I've grown up riding dirt bikes but it's more fun to play around on this thing.

I had some friends over back in January and set up a trials/endurocross course in my "backyard." Sadly, we had to tear it all down Sunday evening so my wife could have her, um, "Backyard" back!

It's not much, but it keeps me entertained. When it comes to choosing to ride or build obstacles, I always choose to ride.

All you need now is a SPLATTER wall.

True. The stacks of logs aren't mine though - they're the next-door neighbors. He heats with an outdoor wood burner and goes through a lot of wood. He was nice enough to arrange them like that for me to use 'til he cuts them up.

I heat with wood also, and don't have much that isn't split right now. That said, I'm ready to start cutting for next year, so cutting a few extra for the retaining wall wouldn't hurt...

Sounds like a plan to me.

Here is a pic of my backyard set-up.
The big log chunk I had to have my wife help me lift it into the back of my Subaru.

It's been enough to keep me entertained since I got the bike.

Damn you guys! Just kidding, I wish I had a yard 1/10 as big as some of those! Out here in CA your lucky to get a yard big enough to need a lawn mower for! I don't even know if I plan on staying around here though! Nice tracks though!

My backyard retaining wall started failing about 3 or 4 years ago. After dreaming about what I could do to fix it this is even better than what I imagined. I haven't even ridden on it yet!

















Now all I need is a modern trials bike!
