Bus fare is pretty cheap these days.
Being a noob myself and going to my first event on Sept. 14th & 15th,(STRA in Hayesville NC) how do you guys typically carry the scorcards around with you??
Choicecut I know how you feel about being scared. Riding in the yard and having ribbons out is probably a whole different ballgame. :eek1
I use a clip-aligator clip like ones you see on clip on badges or IDs. Some use punches to poke hole in cards at one end... our cards are pre marked with up to 16 sections 3 loops each. You can duct tape one end to brake or clutch hoses/cables, or punch hole at one end to fit onto vent hose connector. Unless raining . .. don't put in pocket.

I duct tape mine to the front brake line at the top - with a tape flap so it can be peeled back easily. Some people use paper clamps instead of tape - others put it in a pocket and get it out each section. Make sure you dont lose it.
I staple my loop card to my chest to show the checker that I'm really tough and into pain.
Seriously though...I put my card in a waist/enduro type pack with an extra set of gloves, a rag, some fluid, an energy bar, some energy shots or gels, and most importantly some eye protection. I carry an extra scoring pen in there as well.
After the section I hand the checker my scorecard, grab a swig and put on my eye pro if I have a transit to the next section. That's my routine.
Don't wear a camelback due to the high CG theory.
Thanks guys those are great tips!!!
I hadn't seen it discussed on the board so I thought I would get some ideas.
Welp, glad you brought that up. I wouldn't have been prepared! I thought they zip tied them to your bike FOR you.
Punch a hole in the card and zip tie it to the clutch cable.
Rode both Saturday and Sunday at the Trials Inc event in Newark Ohio. Novice class was much more difficult than I was expecting. I placed 3rd on Saturday and 4th on Sunday. I think I will hang in the Novice group for awhile longer.
Was a freaking blast and everyone was super friendly!
Hoping the RYP school and the 3 events I am going to ride in Oct/Nov will give me the skills to move up to Intermediate next year and not place last.
Was at White Rose in PA for a swap meet a few weeks ago. Picked up a Honda TL125s, in good shape. Question: stock gearing is 15-60, should I go down to 12-60?
Heads up...There won't be a RY clinic in Oct if we don't get 15 riders signed up and pre-paid by the middle of Sept. There's insurance to get, Ryan to pay, and other logistical expenses to cover.
Congrats again on a great weekend!
Noooo! I was really looking forward to that. Are we close to getting 15 people signed up?
Don't know. Check with GrayEagleRider...he's handling sign up and fees. Hopefully it'll all come together in the next couple of weeks.
Almost 50 old lady curious about Trials bikes. Anyone in San Antonio have a trials bike that I could try out to see if it is my cup of tea? Grew up on motorcycles but understand that Trials is totally different. Thanks.
Norristown PA here. I would also like to find someone near by to buddy with.
There is a small group of riders just south of you. We're a mostly unorganized bunch of folks who enjoy fiddling with trials bikes. We mainly compete in the MAVT series (mid-atlantictrials.com).
There is a trails this weekend west of Fort Worth. Look up the club, new; not the North Texas Trials Association. Ask around, many will assist and let you ride various bikes. look for ray Roblin and Willard Kelly, trials masters there.
