Honestly, I'll be disappointed if I can't do some stoppies and pivot turns on the Montesa. Those are what I'm best at on the bicycle so far.

I hope you can too! I'll be there cheering you on!!

In all reality, I surprise myself when one of those two events somehow "happens" to me!

Big Al said you were riding "unhumanly" good Sunday afternoon after I went to set sections. Big rocks, killer turns, nose wheelies...what gives?? Why is it that you always ride your best when I'm not around?
No pics...it didn't happen!

I'll be curious to see how the bicycle has helped Charla and Ben's riding on the moto. I've been thinking about getting a trials bicycle myself...I've tried them out a little bit and it seems very awkward after riding trials motos for years!

We're bringing the bicycles as well, but have been warned about bringing the pogo sticks.

Well, this is NOT the exact bike that I got Aidan. But, very close. I bought the frame from Webcyclery (they were the only ones that had a Kids frame left in stock) and I'm shipping it over to Matt to build up the rest of the bike.

I'll post some action shots, when we get the bike.
