    Going back together easily but I need a good afternoon to knock it out. The snow melted too fast and the outdoor chores have begun. See post #82 for the first days work.

    Hey! I recognize those hills! A bit too far for a weekend drive now.
    :wave Hi Rob. Hope everything is going great for you.

    I had some friends over to my new backyard trials playground today. It's the first time I've ridden a really modern trials bike since moving back to the US. Wow, we had fun! Hopefully they'll post some photos. I didn't take any - I was having too much fun riding!

    Ben tried an intimidating line and made it up with only a tiny dab after a few tries.

    Joz claims he's rusty but he did eventually make it up this rock.

    Yesterday was the first time I was able to do that. I figured it out by watching Joz and just playing around a bit. :D

    Nice Charla. I never saw the extended version of the "dead engine" balance. Good job. I am gonna head to the garage now. Gonna make you work to get that dollar from me.......Now it's on:deal. No longer me vs. Bendejo.....It's me vs. the Smeads:rofl

    Awesome videos! I had a blast with you guys - thanks for letting me do a bit of proper riding. I guess that I really need to compliment my new rock garden with a proper trials bike!

    Holy $hit! that is pretty good balance! if you get to where you have the front wheel straight as well, (work in a hop or 2) then those guys watching you will be merely spotters for YOU,:rofl because that is awesome. BAlance, I have watched probably 50 riders get started in 35 years, few could just dead engine balance like that. I can't do it every time neither, the great ones seem to though
