    This was my first one so I did not score. Watching some of the folks scoring both days, I still had some to learn. I would have been pissing some riders of. I noticed some scorers being pretty lax where I would have counted something.

    I will score on my next one!

    I talked to Jody about scoring. She said for total n00bs like us, she would send us out with an experienced scoring team to learn.

    I thought it was required?
    I rode one even in Pueblo with RMTA and it was definitely required when I rode for years in NETA.

    Round 5 at Turkey Rock was fun. It was a nice preview of the terrain for the nationals next month. It will be unreal with all the big rock faces. I guess most of the ADV trials riders were goofing around somewhere near Buena Vista or something, but Shercoman and I upheld ADV honor by him winning his class and me collecting another third place in mine. It was good to meet you Mark. We'll have to get out for some trials practice some time.

    Hey Moto Beak and Shercoman! Where you guys live? I sold my brother my older gasgas a year ago or so, but he hasnt made the conversion from MX riding, yet, been too busy to ride more or less, but there is hope.

    Anyhow, He's up by Longmont/berthud race track area. Dad & I wish and hope to make an RMTA meet this year from kansas, drag him out and meet people. you know, get him started. would like to get him started asap. if you guys are anywhere near him, get me your emails via PM, if I make it out there maybe we can meet sat or something and I dunno, drink a cold one?

    if you goto website, they posted the GPS on the map...
    put it in google maps, zoom out a little... and yeah I started a thread about bad maps on here a while back, and RMTA is a posterchild for "Pirate Maps" that nobody outside the gang of misfits are meant to discover the treasure...

    I just got my Dirt Rider mag in the mail and the featured photo (about 5 pages in) is Colorado's Kieth Wineland doing a huge step-up! :thumb

    The caption also says how trials is postioned for a big surge in popularity.

    Good job CO!

    That's awesome!!!:clap I have been saying that in 5-10 years the "COOL" kids with the trials bikes; will just be regular people. It's slowly making it's way to the states.......

    When Ben and i went to get our OHV registration, AT THE MOTORCYCLE SHOP, the lady said "what's a trials bike?" :huh REALLY!!!..... But i had never heard of one till last fall and now i own one and have been bitten big time.............. It'll happen:deal

    I know the first time I rode one, I was hooked immediately. It's very addictive! Can't imagine not having a trialer now. :nod

    Actually, not to belittle your schvartz, but I can barely see the DV smilie on the forum's dark skin background, and the light skin isn't any better. Now you need a high-res DV smilie...
