a Gymkhana interview from the UK:
Gymkhana = closed courses, no license required, no title, no nothing.
The baby, ya, you're going to need a hobby for stress relief....
the tax man takes whatever you give him freely, fight the power.
If only we had a closed course. Maybe ill buy a trials bike and climb the stress peaks

In preparation of season 2013, the dutch Gymkhana site is in the air.

This Sunday, the first event from this year will be in Amsterdam.
Geez that's fancy. Gymkana's at motorcycle rallies in Australia are much more fun. Held in a big paddock and usually involve a beer or 2.
Your version is so nice.
Minibike soccer the kicker on the bike and the catcher win a beer!
Blind reverse quad races.
Postie bike musical beer cans.
Beer can on 44 figure 8 racing.
The classic slow race
The log jump
Sidecar circle races (nb beer truck)
Just posted up a video onto our UK Facebook page that shows a section of a recent TV programme that did a feature on Moto Gymkhana.
If you have a Facebook account it will be worth taking a look.
please post videos on real, accesible hosting servers, like youtube, vimeo, etc
please, someone, please kill the facebook daydream believin train. just make a website, upload some video, and let it be. someday, we want to look back at old threads and ridereports, and still have them. (myspace anyone?)
You could argue that either way. I've owned domains and run web servers; they are all shut down today. Currently, I use Google's Blogger (http://ak-vstrom.blogspot.com/), Picasa, etc. for stuff I want to share, since I expect that 1) Google has better uptime than my personal servers and Internet connection will; and 2) while Google's platforms may not be quite as flexible as writing my own CGI scripts, HTML and CSS, it's a lot easier (and probably higher quality). You could make the same arguments about MySpace/Facebook, too.
Technology changes; that's unavoidable. No matter how or where you try to store videos, photos, etc., sooner or later, the provider (or storage medium) will be replaced with something newer/better/whateverer
One of our Moto Gymkhana riders in Poland is also a fairly useful stunt rider. Check out his head down trick as just knee down is so last year!

His GP8 is not too shabby either.

Apologies to all for referencing a video on Facebook, but the producers of the programme only made it available in that format.
I guess his head was really itchy in that helmet. HAHA
Motogymkhanaman, whats the word on your Gymkhana manual?
a server that requires login to view content (basicly spamming) and prevents easy downloading of that content.... is just a pita. not to mention changing policies, privacies, and the flow of everything daily.
my gripe isn't facebook (it is usually, but not the focus today), its the stuff mentioned above.
I have accounts from years ago that still serve up photos and videos just like back then. no login, no "whoareyou", no privacy issues at all. just wonderful, free, hosting.
:) I know what you mean though.
Once again sorry about posting up the Motorbike Show feature on Moto Gymkhana onto Facebook.
It now seems that it is possible to view it on Youtube, so for everybody that hasn't yet seen it, here it is in all it's glory.

hey thanks for that !
when I see a fella in front of a rover getting interested in cones, that's a very positive thing. so often people are confused and confuzzled by the byways and distractions of BUYING instead of riding.
gymkhana doesn't care about
chrome (eats it, actually)
or even if you use synthetic oil
all Gymkhana wants to do is teach the willing, and install grins.
