    No, not that kind of trial. This kind.



    Tomorrow is my first comp in 38 years. I may, or may not, let you know how it goes.

    Just a little dirt on my butt. It broke after I bailed when it was chasing me back down the cliff.

    I have, but in all my years of all kinds of riding & crashing, this is the first time I've broken a handlebar.

    Did you land on top of the bike?
    A freaking trials bike only weighs like 30 lbs, it couldn't have broken from its own weight. :-)

    No, it almost landed on top of me. Maybe if it had the bar wouldn't have broken. :lol3
