Used to ride MAVT events, but now that I'm in the sunny south, I ride ITSA events.
Fun bunch, campfires on Saturday nights are great social events, often a couple guys get out some guitars and other instruments.
Also, Scottish style sections, no splits, ride 'em as they lay.
In MI, IN and OH it is Michigan-Ontario Trials Assn. See motatrials.org . A great bunch of riders who will help anyone and everyone no matter what you ride. The areas are largely in central lower MI, Windsor Ont. and Northern Indiana just added the Michiana club. Come ride with us. AMA rules but your AHRMA or ITSA bike is also welcome.
Norton 73 I was at Dickson for NATC the last wk of September. Were you there on a twinshock? That was one tough trial after all that rain... Ginder always puts on a great event.
Nope, Buddy Guy was playing in Birmingham, AL that night.
Norton 73 there just are not enough wknds to do everything. U missed a great trial. Big Bartons Creek was Big Bartons RIVER after all that rain. Great fun though. A tough trial for a MI flatlander... Bob loves to test us.
Bob certainly makes a challenging trial, but it's all kinds of fun. Soon there will be a thread on my latest build. Bob made the frame mods, I'm going to build a hot rod motor, hopefully I'll use it to compete against modern bikes as well as ITSA events. M158 frame with M159 motor.

When I needed parts or help with my GASGAS. Les had the advise, parts and experience to help me out.
These guys and the UMTA do quite a bit together.
Hi Since I see you have at least 2 Huskys... I thought I would put the owrk out. In the early 80's there was one factory produced Husqvarna Trials bike that made it's way to the USA. It was ridden by a Husqvarna employee.. (me) for 6 months then sold to one of the dealers in the new Orleans area. We are now trying to locate that bike for Husqvarna Museum in Huskvarna, Sweden. If anyone out there knows anything about the bike now.. or where it might have gone... we would love to know about it.
These folks have a lot of Yurpeen and Japanese stuff available. Adrian Lewis is Scottish and has lots of overseas connections.
Disclaimer: I help with their web site. They were our NM dealer and big-time trials supporters then they moved to CA, and are continuing there....
Mandy and Adrian are tops!
A couple of days ago, I called 'em for a part....turns out they were in Flagstaff, on layover enroute to the Nationals. Had the part with 'em, and shipped whilst on a roadtrip, now that's customer service!
Other than those already mentioned,
For trick bits and a few factory items, this ebay seller from GB is great. Awesome shipping prices and parts arrive in my Oregon mailbox approx 10 days after purchasing. I don't know the guy (other than having purchased from him) and have no vested interest other than to help other ADV'rs out: http://myworld.ebay.com/how61/ I've been real happy with this "bloke" (isn't that what they call "dudes" in GB??)
Interesting for all Honda Trials fans,
Apparently not a regular Gas-Gas part. Available here:
Spanish web site, 10 years old: www.todotrial.com
Will someone please rescue this poor old Yamaha.
Not much left, but it is only $100.
Not much trials action in Memphis, imagine that, being the skanky swamp that it is.
I know there are vintage trials guys up in MO.
I would think at the very least you could make a few bucks prting it on eBay
The International Twin Shock Association is devoted to twinshock trials. They cover anything twinshock, air cooled, drum brake. That covers the very old to the very creative. The welcome modern bikes to attend their events and are planning a class for air cooled drum brake monos.
Any plans to run an event out here in the Wild, Wild West? I have a garage full of old junk I would love to compete on!
