From Malibu's post on another thread. We don't have trials compititions down South, so any of you guys go to compititions, post some piccies.

Malibu, I see that trials bikes are long overdue. Mark's been hinting since 2007 on a RR thread of Grim.

 :thumleft: Problem is the little bit of skill I've devoloped is beginning to exceed my level of fitness. Yesterday we played a bit hard and today I paid the price for it.  :biggrin:

Just faking it well  :biggrin: Going a bit rough now. Popped the left fork seal yesterday.  :eek7: Luckily I've got the bash intervening this weekend so can have it fixed and serviced... and to give the old bones a bit of a rest.  :imaposer:

Man, I'm hurting in places where there wasn't places before.

The big problem facing trials in this country is that youngsters are not getting involved. They are all going mx / enduro / superbikes

It's such a nice sport but pity it gets no exposure on TV to make it appealing to the kids.
