    I'm not known for doing things the easy way. :D

    So far, I think we'll get along great.

    Last summer when I first had my '17 TXT 125, I was practicing wheelies in first and second, so I thought I'd try third, but really grabbed a handful.... Instant loop out! I can only imagine a 280!:eek2

    It doesn't matter what size of trials bike one has. Get your weight out of shape with a hand full of throttle and you WILL launch it.

    Ah good old ADVrider. Guy asks should I buy bike A or bike B; everybody says bike A so he buys bike B :) .

    Nice 280 RidingMann, have fun. Trials is awesome.

    Will 2018 Contact ES come to the US with lights, signals, horn and cluster as shown in their website?
    Is there any chance that it will be street legal here in the US?

    You're just defying gravity like all good trials riders.
