    On the date of the OP question, the GG and I were the trialsmaster for our club event. The temperature at start time was 19degrees with a windchill of 7 degrees. The day before the event, when setting up the sections, it was 45 degrees.

    Took the old GG out to my favorite spot and was promptly reminded of just how bad I suck at trials. Spent most of the time sacrificing my body to keep from scratching the bike up too bad, went home sore and cried myself to sleep.

    That should screw up everybody's riding! Is bike maintenance in the Leagues rule book? :kurt

    I wasn't exaggerating with the "Speedway Bend" joke. This view is the same as if you are on the pegs-

    Cool bend, though-

    Mrs Megamoto. She's not ridden a bike for seven years, it was hard work to get her off the Techno.

    He took to it pretty well, even attacking a hill at the end of the afternoon...

    It was a great way to spend the day with my son, who I have not seen in 7 years. I think we have a convert......

    Well, ...my dad didn't ride motorcycles...and we haven't talked in almost 30 years. For just a second...I wished that I was your son :huh. That's a VERY important moment in BOTH of your lives. GREAT job Chris, he will NEVER forget that experience. More will come of that. :clap:clap
