    I was leading a pack of HDs today while riding the Super Tenere and saw a group of duel-sporters at a gas station near white lake atv park. Slowest 150 mile ride I've ever been on....

    Might be some of the W.A.R.D. guys out of Wilmington. They do Sunday rides regularly.

    Here you go Dirigo. Here's some stuff that EDK shot this past weekend.

    The clinic was absolutely amazing. Cannot begin to tell you how much we both learned this weekend. Never thought I could do the things with a motorcycle that I did.. Splatters into a 6' wall being one...a floater turn off a tree being another.

    The 1st pic is the Splatter I spoke of. Splatter is a Trials term...Google it if you what to know more.

    Now the video...never executed one before. It got much easier after the 1st one.

    Now the Ryan Young (6 time National Trials champion) showing us all how it's supposed to be done.

    Click on the videos to play them. Thanks for the vids EDK.

    Sounds like you guys had a good time and learned a lot. I've done a few of that type of clinic over the years, not trials, but the same type of stuff. I always counted that as the best money I've ever spent on my bike, better than any exhaust, big bore kit, or the latest new farkle by far. Money well spent! :thumb

    Me too! Great ride at Outback on Sunday. Motorcycles are bad for us, the pain is just a reminder. ;)
    Sounds like you guys learned a lot. Always fun learning new and interesting ways to hurt yourself.

    Don't know yet but if I'm not working that weekend I might leave Thursday evening and ride back roads there and get back Tuesday. I don't like to hurry unless I'm on the grid.

    Cool. We're going out Thursday. Coming back Monday or Tuesday. Got a big group of guys meeting there from all over. :freaky

    Friday (practice day) will be a great day to be there. Up close and personal with the best Trials riders in the world. :wink:

    Ryan Young said most all the Pros bikes coming over will be sold after the event. That includes the Minders bikes. :evil:evil:evil:evil:evil

    I'd probably only be at the competition one day and be riding around the rest.

    Very Nice! Thanks for sharing Tarheelwheeler! When I learn how to walk and chew bubble gum at the same time I'll try trials next!
