    The 4rt is one bump slow,into an obstacle. and it one bump extra over the top of an obstacle.
    I have been over the bars several times already.
    But this is just a timing thing and I am catching on/up.
    I can roll into and over things easier. Much traction.
    I ride at a low level, and with vintage rules on Saturday so this is easy for that.
    I can turn my Gas gas sharper, and the bigger stuff is easier on the Gas gas.
    I thought I was going to use this as my Trail bike but I am starting to think I could lower my scores with more practice.
    Any modern Trials bike will be good, but I want more, haven't tried the new Ossa. Yet

    You look like you been riding a while...

    That neott & maybe some of the Texhoma group, have been busy little beavers all week with posts on riding, or plans and events. In fact facebook traffic "notifications" was constantly going off worse than spam that floods into my email which also sends notifications, lol... (I get notifications when they post, so it wasnt spam)

    I AM SOOOO envyous to watch/read about all these guys meeting up several days this past and coming week for that matter... Wished sometimes I didnt live in the middle of the black hole of central kansas, where nobody else lives or seems to ride, LOL. TO be down there where the action is, plus have the time, wow. Come on lottery.

    I know...what a bummer for her. I can't imagine how upset she is right now. See how dangerous non-motorcycle sports are! :D

    Garrett just got out of his walking cast yesterday. He still has 8 weeks plus before the dr releases him. So if it`s the same time frame for Racheal she could make the nationals, with no practice 4 months lost. Not good.:(:

    Yesterday I changed the oil in my 280 TXT then loaded it and the 4RT on my trailer to take a new trail rider[four off road rides] and new to trials bikes on a
    a fun day in the rain, rocks and roots of Walker Valley. He got soaked, muddy and a fair amount of pick the bike practice all in all a fun day in the muck. He still wants to pick up a trials bike, so it worked out pert good.

    I bought a rumpty old 307 Fantic about three weeks ago, with leaking forks seals and no back brake, so ripped forks out and gave them to mechanic/trials fiend/friend and didn't expect to see them for quite some time. By-chanced in to him today, forks all good, so have spent the rest of the day reassembling, and dis-assembling, and re-reassembling again and finally now with light fading (9.30pm in southern NZ, land of long twilight) kicked her into life and blatted around the block. Neighbours peering out thru the blinds at what the racket is. It might be old and rumpty, but she don't have to be subtle.
    Back in to the garage and stood her against the wall.

    Lookin forward to another glorious summer day tomorrow, and I think I may just go out for a wee putt putt on my Fantic.

    I'm sorry for all you folks suffering thru your Northern Hemi winter, but for the rest of the year I look at what you're all up to... ...and bide my time.

    Happy new year to you all.

    How bout some pics of NZ Ccino?


    I pulled the carb off my 97 Techno 250 today. Took it apart and cleaned all the jets. It would not run off choke. I put grips on but they dont fit. I guess trials grips are different, wish I knew that before I cut the old ones off! found the intake boot from box to carb all broken and cut. order new one. top off the coolant. :eek1

    Took the Climber out for the first time today after getting it going yesterday (carb clean, petcock clean, add fuel, air up tires to 4.5, etc... )

    Not much place around here to ride it w/o driving 20min, but for a test ride (not sure whats going to need tinkered with just yet) I just rode it around a flat field by the house and tried to get a feel for the clutch and brake and run through the gears, do some slow wheelies, try to balance out, etc...

    About 20min is all I could handle... I'm SO out of shape...

    We were scouting for lower sections for the Feb trial, so nothing even remotely huge today.

    Thanks for the free first hit TL. Since then another rider has loaned me his bike while he recovery from a knee overhaul. Spent a good half hour on the bike in the garage without starting it trying to get my basic balance down. I'm up to an average of 9 seconds with a high of 19. Hopefully I'll get a chance to fire her up during daylight and get some flat land practice in soon.

    Sirloynz and I took my bikes out for a comparison ride yesterday. Did some trails, hopped over some logs, switched bikes a few times. Talked about them over burgers, I like the red one best. The blue one seems quicker[to me:D] and turns sharper. Your results my very.:deal Any way we rode them, got em dirty and had a fine day. Think I will keep them.

    And today they got a slosh job.

    Ready for next time. Seems as tho more people are going to the dark side.:clap
