    I thought they weren't getting here till mid April, was there a demo opportunity or something? (I have no money but really like the idea of this bike as a long time Honda guy :D)

    I knew that would pul you out of the water!

    I remember guys who used to tie on ankle weights to train for track, you Montessa riders remind me of those guys. Just think how fast you will be able to run when you take the training weights off! :lol3

    Pretty damn impressive pig, eh? :lol3




    Hmmm, let's see now. 12 World Outdoor championships just on a quickie check, the 4RT has been World Champ ongoing since 2006....I'd say the ankle weights are off. So how has Beta done in the World Championships in the past few years, eh bruddah?? :evil

    BTW, shouldn't you be out setting our next Trial instead of picking on the Might of HRC?

    You really think that Bou's bike is remotely like this latest BNG version ?

    :poser


    ......it's all good. It's not as if any of us could tell the difference anyway.

    I'm hooping that they are feeling the water and when they see the demand for these bikes actually come out with a whole new bike.

    Anyway, there is a credible rumor out there that this is what's going on. :nod

    This will be, or is, the first time that U.S. Honda has imported 4RTs into the USA. It's kind of a big deal.

    Yeah but that pig has has had an extreme makeover and also been on biggest loser to get de-pigged and Bou could ride the box the bike came in up a tree

    Seriously it is stirring some trials interest plus (see my torn between 2 bikes post) I am still torn maybe after i see her in person and see how she behaves I may no longer be torn or could get worse
