its a shame, I was looking forward to this thread and learning.
Not sure what the paranoia is about. Gordy was just making a funny. (One those you had to be there moments)
No need to run away.
You giving up already? Hope not because if you think this thread is tough, wait till you have to unlearn all those trail bike skills!
In all seriousness, go to the next trial event and watch the beginner and intermediate loop - that’s what a few years of learning looks like. Talk with a couple people, network a little maybe to find someone to help you along. Many times, there will be a bike for sale and I promise you at the very least with helmet in hand, you’ll be able to throw a leg over one.
No need to buy brand new nor a 300CC, you won’t need it.
I'm thinking a lot of us are going to end up on the ignore list.
We all are.
Lighten up Francis.
Hey amigo, no big deal. We *try* to keep this thread about what we did today, not what we want to do, not what we did sometime in the last century, etc. It is a great thread and we all BS a lot about things we did in the last few days from Brewtus changing his oil to guys actually riding. Ouch....that slipped out......
There is actually lots of better info on this site (like in the links that I posted) about getting started and what to buy and why.
We will help you all that you want and then some, there are great guys around here and we want to welcome all.
Wanna buy my Sherco 300?
Lol, now you're on 'the list'.

I began getting in the routine of practicing balancing again. Used to be just a shade better than this
On the upside, I did get the moto side of the garage swept up. So there's that.
Boy, you really suck. Moose is gonna kick your butt on his enduro bike. Let some air out of your tires.
Did the first service on the Montesa and my wife's Contact.
Holy shit was that frustrating! I think getting the damn oil filter out and a new one in on the Montesa might be the worse design ever in a motorcycle.
It had me wishing I'd just bought a freaking 2 stroke trials bike! She enjoyed watching me get completely frustrated but at least it's done. Even changed the precious Elf gearbox oil that must be made from unicorn sperm at $54 a quart.
I still love the Montesa. It even makes a complete trail hack like me look like a decent rider.
Ya my first Montesa oil change was a bit of a moment... I learned a few tricks over time and its better now.
My recommendation now that your past your first service... My 300 manual says every 15 hours and my 07 250 4RT says every 30...
So what I have been doing on my 07 and will continue on my 300 as I don't push the bike hard is oil change every 15 hours and filter every 30, then the clutch/gearbox oil I change every 60 and have never had any performance issues and the oil looks the same at 60 as it dose at 30 so works great for me.
If you are bye the book and you don't want to do that I don't blame you, but thought I would share what has been working for me for the past 6 years on my 07 and so far the same results on the 300 with 0 issues.
I'm with jonnyc21 on that one. I think most of the intervals are set for race/high level competition trials riders, not a putz rider like me. Hell, I don't check the valves on my KTM either. I figure if it gets hard to start then something needs to be checked and I'll do it then. I just trail ride/dual sport it, no competition stuff.
I expect Motobene is screaming about now LOL.
Bite me Gordy!!
Oops, this is What I did with my TRIALS bike today. I was on a Reflex. My bad.
Whiskey throttled the old heap or was that planned??
Come see us. Miss you. Mean it.
Miss you crazy kids too.
Whiskey throttle? Pff, you could whiskey throttle that lump all you want, it won't get away from you. AW wanted a cool pic for HPTA, so that's all unload. To channel Martin Lampkin, "Big legs, Brewtie!!"
I suppose that if you whiskey throttle a Reflex it just goes
Bill's in Salem is a recent addition to the GasGas dealership network as well as new to the trials scene. You might give Gary a call at Gran Prix Cycle in Albany, he has been around trials longer, actually has set up trials events. He is a small dealership inventory wise but can get GasGas and TRS bikes and is a great guy to deal with. Not trying to knock Bill's, he is agreat dealer and motorcycle enthusiast /supporter, just new to the trials world.
After being off a trials bike for a few years, you're a LOT better than I. So, stop sniveling.
