AHRMA Trials at Unadilla

Hi Folks,
I'm posting this early so people can make plans.
There will be a class for Post 79 Trials bikes that are air-cooled, have drum brakes and twin shocks at the Unadilla MX Rewind on Friday May 30th. http://www.unadillamx.com/rewind/schedule.html It will be called 'Post Vintage Twin Shock'. This class will not interfere with the ahrma points system and you will not receive ahrma points for entering it. It will be a chance for the later twin shock bikes to compete against each other, receive recognition for their efforts and not be just a support class. There will be awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the 1,2 and 3 lines, as in Expert, Intermediate and Novice.
Here's a chance for the people who own these bikes from the 80's, like Honda TLR's and Reflex's, SWM's and all others to compete at an ahrma event and maybe even show ahrma this is a worthy venture!

Gordo83, that is just great that the `other` air cooled are being recognized. Hope you have a large turnout.

Cool. I didn't know there was a trials there too.
Is this a regular AHRMA trials round with all the usual classes or just the exhibition for this new class?

The Trial at Unadilla is a regular AHRMA points Trial with all the regular classes. The added class is just for Unadilla.

No, AHRMA doesn't lay it out. Someone is the trialmaster.
I'm always hesitant to drive 500 miles to an event that has been laid out by someone that may or may not understand what a vintage motorcycle can do.
That is why I alway ask who is laying out the trial.

Yes, AHRMA is laying it out. I would never say they were if they were not.
The Trialsmaster is Rob Poole. Rob Poole and his wife and anyone they have working with them are very familiar with Vintage Trials and how to lay out an event.

Rob is very good. He doesn't lay out a trial that is only fun on a TY 175.

The Pool's lay out a nice trial.
I only ask because there have been instances where AHRMA national trials have been laid out by someone who didn't have a good understanding of vintage bikes.
I've ridden a lot of AHRMA trials since starting with them back in '89.
I laid my first vintage national out in '90 and the last one this past September, I know what I am talking about.

Good question, ARMA has usually been too easy. But it is very hard to please everyone. Good turns with the correct obstacles is hard to do right! It`s truly awesome when done just right. Have fun guys.

That`s interesting with twin shockers only 5 years outdated, and trials in most parts of the usa still only twenty years old. Not being smart, just curious since I started vintage about 2005 and got over 42 years in trials.

The cutoff back then was '74. There was a lot more of "old iron" out competing back then. But most of the guys that rode the old stuff have either gotten too old or passed on.
Anyway, I'm not really complaining about who is laying out the event, just trying to figure out if it is worth the drive to ride the event.
