    Anyone who has been in Trials for a while know what I'm talking about. Trials is hardly a multi-million dollar a year industry, so even markers at the Pro level are sometimes done by hand, club-level Trials almost exclusively so. Start/End markers, Split or Gate markers, even Section Trail markers have been known to have that little something extra depending on who made 'em up. Got 'em, seen 'em, or made 'em? Post them here! After all, Trials is all about fun!!

    Miss Bitters first Trial as a TM is coming up May 6th. She spent some time last night making up the Section Markers, and having a bit of fun doing so -

    This obviously was not patterned after me crashing. The language would be much, much worse....

    This one going near one of the pools of standing water at SanYo. If we're lucky, there will be water still in it come Trial time -

    This was one of the coolest gates I've seen this year. A floating Pro gate marker in a pool at San Ysidro set by Sam Fastle! :lol3

    These don't quite have that personal touch, but they should do the trick.
