Trials Tyre Trouble!!

Theres a bunch of us old guys,all in our 50's, having another go at Trials!
We've known and ridden together for 30-40 years,had TY's TL's and Bultacos,Montessas back in the day,then got into enduros,MX,road bikes, adventure riding etc.
But going to the World Trials round here in Australia in 2012 and this year has fired the trials bug again. I've always had a trials bike in the shed,mines the old TLR Honda, still a better bike than my skills!
Any way, every Saturday is practice day at my mate Al's
Hers a pic of yesterdays crew

Jayden,Als young bloke,Brad,Mark and Al
WE have a couple of Shercos, a Gas Gas and a Ossa






And the tyre trouble???
Right here!!!!! Mark brought this out to add to our little section



Took a bit to synch it in with the rest of the obstacles!




We rode around and around it,sizing it up!!





My money was on Mark,as he is ex-A grade


but Jayden had a crack first! Not quite!!!


then Mark rode straight over!


Me, Brad and Al will have a go next week!





There is no pressure put on anyone,only encouragement,after all, its just old guys reliving their youth!!

What fun!! I wish I could get my mates to get trials bikes. I'm trying to lead by example but either they're dense and not getting it or I haven't been forceful enough.

Good on ya mate!

It's really fantastic to see such socialization around obstacles!

I have been involved with motorsport all my life, and I have to say Trials events and riders are THE friendliest ever!!
Where else can you reach out and touch a world champion whist he is plying his trade!
