    Harry will see you at Sipapu if you come. I will most likely be manning the sign up table. Line will be the TM for the event so the sections will be great.

    That's a good question. I 'think' it is part of the jump and I am extending my body forward and up. I see videos of this and it sure looks like guys are pulling the bike up and I suppose that is kind of what is going on but if you jump hard enough, your feet will actually leave the pegs and the bike has to be pulled up to you, so yes.....I guess you are pulling the bike up......in a way. :dunno

    Here is the same deal on the higher wall with a paving stone as a kicker. You can see what is going on better here.....I think.

    Hey......I just did the air cleaner this evening and it's getting better. What a miserable design...........
    Only about 30 minutes this time, so I've cut an hour off of my previous record.... :twitch
    I could service my Cummins diesel in about the same amount of time though. JFC

    We had a rather large rain/snow/sleet storm the past 24 hrs or so. I have a river about a half acre behind my property line. The river is now my back yard. on the positive side the big logs have not moved, but some of the smaller ones did. So that means I get to change it up a little bit. If it ever dries out. Maybe I should borrow a jetski and do some water trials?

    Does a '99 Gas Gas 321 count as a vintage bike?

    Thanks for posting this video also. Back in the 80s there was a ski training system called Sybervision where you watched the moves over and over again to program it into the brain. Well I'll be Sybervisiony your video all weekend long. Thanks

    I'm glad that this is helping and you are having fun. I have a great coach that has helped me get the basics figured out and if I can help in any way, it makes me feel as though i'm passing it on.

    With an iPhone in a simple tripod and it does a great job of it. I can quickly scroll forward and back in the phone to see what is going on and then delete most of them. It's a lot of fun too!!
    Any sport athlete is at least doing this. I think if you are just "riding", you are just riding. If you want to learn, then use any tools available including bugging some better riders for free or paid (serious) lessons.
    I'm not by any means an athlete, but I do enjoy improving in a measurable fashion. That is one of the things that is cool about trials, you can easily tell if you are getting any better........or not. :bluduh

    Funny you posted this. Yesterday there were two guys doing donuts with a boat just behind my neighbors back yard. :loco

    Water came up a bit higher after those pictures.
    The logs that are parallel to each other actually form a box with a log underneath each end.
    The logs in the background were the ones that moved.

    I was able to push around one of my approx. 18" dia. logs. Just floated away.

    That looks like a great opportunity to float some larger stuff into place. Tie it off where you want it.
