Boise trials riders

I just got a trials bike a few weeks ago. Would have gotten one sooner if I had known there is a couple of guys who ride almost every week, year round. This is a great work out and more fun than........well something really fun.
So if anyone has ever thought about trials riding there is a group that rides here weekly at the Secret Trials Disneyland. This is a great place to ride for beginners to expert.



These are from my third time so go easy on me you FF'ers

SCExpat screwed with this post 10-03-2012 at 09:49 AM Reason: pics. It did happen.

Cool! I'll be coming over to Boise to spend a week or so with my brother and I'll probably haul along the trials bike amongst others. I'll post up here when I know the dates and get into contact with you.

Send me an email or PM and I'll meet you at the "Secret Trials Disneyland". My schedule is real flexible and I can go most days. The regulars go Sunday at 8:00 AM. I have a hard time getting out of the house early so I usually make it closer to 9:00. See you soon.

I ended up being the only one out there (STD) sunday. Still had fun and without anyone to watch or BS with I was wiped out by 11:00 I thought I would at least make it till noon.

Sunday (10-28) was a great day for trials riding. A bit cold in the AM but once you start riding you start generating body heat and are soon sweating.

Scouting some new sections to ride.


Then start riding.



The group goes most Sundays and beginners (like me) are always welcome. Great fun and one heck of a workout.

110412 Trials Ride STD

Mike, Todd, Vern, and Brian. Great ride last Sunday. Can you believe it was November? Hopefully my rear brake line will be here by Friday so I can ride this Sunday. I do need rear brakes, don't I? Here are some pics

Great first post.

I see you got the picture thing figured out. Hope you get that brake line replace and we see you out there Sunday. Might be a little cool this weekend but as long as it is not pouring rain I'll be there.

I have been thinking about getting a used trials bike. I haven't seen many come up on Craigslist around here though. If anybody is looking to sell one or maybe trade for a 1999 BMW R1200C let me know. I see quite a few on the Tulsa, OK Craigslist, I might have my father in law check one out for me and ship it here.

Here is one for you: http://boise.craigslist.org/mcy/3369946837.html

I had to have mine shipped from Albuquerque as they are far and few here. You are welcome to come out Sunday for the practice/training/fun/BS session.

Hope to see you soon.

That one is a little rich for my blood at the moment. How much was it to have it shipped from NM?

Sent you a PM for a local Beta Rev 3 for less than half of one SCExpat sent you info on.

BTW, where is this STD area? My wife has a trial bike and we just moved to the area and looking for a place for her to ride it.

I have a 2002 Beta Rev3 270 and am really happy with it.

The 270 is a bit much for a first trials bike (looped it the first ride) but I have learned to be very careful with the throttle.

We ride in Melba near Celebration Park. Most Sundays. Currently starting at 9:00 AM to......1 - 2PM. A few weeks ago it was so nice we stayed till 3:00. It kicked my arse. Monday was a recovery day. Expected to be "in shape" and not get sore after a couple of months but it still leaves me exhausted and a bit sore for a couple of days. Much more strenuous than I ever expected. New riders are always welcome and encouraged. Looking forward to seeing more new faces.

11-11-12 Ride

Started at 9AM and it was cold. I (and others) wore thermals under my riding gear and after a couple of minutes I was no longer cold. 30 minutes later I was sweating.....as usual.




Another day of great fun riding. I even forgot it was cold.
