    either pads or rotors wear out, depending on which is tougher. I'd rather wear out a bunch of$20 pads then $200 rotor.

    look for reviews on Amazon

    Well our local 2014 season has come to an end! It was a lot of fun and I'd like to think that we all progressed quite a bit in this one year.

    Here are a few photos from our last competition of 2014, as well as the video. For more photos, videos, course exercises, etc check out our webiste:

    We are really lucky by having a good photographer as one of our riders. :D
    It was a blast!



    Quick note to anybody who is interested.
    Moto-gym.com now has a small "Shop" section. We have translated one of Japanese instructional DVDs, so if you are interested head on over.

    im happy to hit local car parks set up witches hats and ride around them, but with a group of people this might attract some interest.

    I don't think we have anyone from Sweden currently.
    You can always start off with our remote competition, while you are by yourself. People tend to gravitate towards you after a while, once they start noticing what you are doing. And if you are good at it, it'll be that much faster.
    :D

    Our Remote Competition page:

    We also have quite a few people on our Facebook Group from all over the world. Again I don't think we have anyone from Sweden, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Ordered the file! It can be burned to a DVD so I can share with my group, right?

    Yes, shouldn't be a problem. You can either burn that file on a disk and share that, to be played on PC, or if you have DVD making software, you can make a proper DVD that can be played on the actual DVD player, on TV.

    We had one issue with people on Mac not getting the sound. Let us know if you are on Mac and have that problem. info@moto-gym.com

    Otherwise, enjoy!

    Here is a silly little video I made to mark my three years of practicing Moto Gymkhana. Hope you all enjoy.

    First post of 2015. Everybody must be practicing hard out.

    Not exactly Gymkhana related but might be of interest. We stuck a trials bike in the shed just before Christmas and I have been practicing religiously, trying to do 15 mins a day in the garden. Balance, throttle control, body position ect. I'm improving but not exactly a threat to Tony Bou.
    Until recently the TDM has had very sporadic use but I have had to ride on a daily basis for the last week. Bugger:D
    Well blow me down, hard on the stops turns at any time and all the Gymkhana techniques are suddenly effortless. And very smooth.
    The hard physical practice on the wee trials bike has translated instantly to the big bike.
    Great way to keep fit, too.
    I'm really looking forward to getting a GP8 set up soon to see the difference.
    I'm quite amazed. What I'm learning on an 80kg bike works on a 250kg bike.
