The gang I ride trials with are mostly older ex-racers too. At 41, I'm one of the young'uns. We're always trying to lure younger riders to our Sunday play dates.
Our riders are on a roughly-50/50 mix of modern and vintage bikes. We all know each other pretty well so there's always a lot of bike-swapping going on.
So how many trials bikes are sold in the US each year?
My two cents. Trials bikes in the USA has always gone in spurts. Unfortunately always too low of numbers. 75-76 was good. 82-83. (SWM, Fantics) 1985 was cool with disc brakes and mono. 91-92. 95-96 were good years. `98 the 315 was killer. 2001 all bikes jumped ahead. 2005-2006 were good. Pretty much down hill from there, due to price and small numbers!
Just too many models, FOR SUCH A LIMITED sport!
If I was a betting man, I would say 1995 was the best year!
Excellent perspective. How many, in 1995?
