Today was mostly spent in first gear!
^^^ Copper Mtn.
Yup! Mostly first gear
Haven't been up there for a few years. How beat and loose is the road up? Did you hike to the summit?
I have a picture of a friend's DRZ at the top. The other guy and I left our bikes at the last flat and hiked. The guy who rode to the top inquired if "either of you two fine gentlemen interested in riding the DRZ back down?". We declined "You got it up here, you get it down"
Short video clip on top of Copper:
Guy on the right rode to the top.
Once I made it to where the picture was taken, the risk/reward portion of my brain kicked in. Hiking that loose rock in Sidi Crossfire boots didn’t really interest me either. To answer your question, there is enough loose boulders and shale to keep you focused.
I was wearing work boots at that time.

Just a heads up for anyone in the area that might want to come out and see some great trials competition, we are hosting an event in Ymir on the Labour Day long week-end. We'll have a vintage trial on the Saturday 30th and all modern classes on Sunday Sept 1st. There will be a handful expert riders so if you want to see some amazing riding come out and check it out, and I'm sure there must be a few old TY's in garages and basements that should be ridden!!! Dust em off and bring em out!!
I can't figure out how to attach the event flyer so if anyone needs info PM me.
Video from the event a few years back.
Moving my daughter to The Island that weekend, otherwise I’d be in for sure. Love to find a good used TL or TY.
Still plenty of Summer left. Any ideas for a gathering?
I’m up for a meet n greet in September. Our house has not sold so happy to host.
Don’t pick a rainy day or no one will show up....
A little reminder bump for anyone who wants to come check out some trials competition action this weekend, Saturday vintage starting at 12:00 and all classes Sunday first rider out at 10:00. 8001 Forrister Rd in Ymir, come on out!
Not a chance in hell I will show up. One more obsession could and probably would get me divorced
What are the odds of there being any rentals/demo bikes available? I’d like to give trials a go but buying a special bike plus a tow vehicle puts that out of reach.
On the other hand, I haven’t been in Ymir since , ummm , uh when was it now?
Oh come on now...bring the partner too, we are soooo friendly!
There won’t be any rental options and I don’t know if either dealer is bringing demo bikes, however if you were seriously interested I’m sure a test ride would be made available by most anyone you talk to after the event. Most trials riders are super friendly and keen to promote the sport.
Ever see any Dalesman trials bikes there Ymirtrials?
No I don’t think so, in fact I’ve not heard that name before. You have photos?
If I wasn't Calgary bound this weekend, Ymir would have been front and center for me!
And it's unfortunate I didn't read this thread in-depth earlier. I've moved to the east Koots this year but have done only a few solo rides.
