Hey Mal....

Thanks, Pity that it clashed with the DP1/2 weekend. You guys would have had such a giggle at me yesterday.
Next one is on the 6th Dec

You'll probably be a lot more relaxed for that one, now that you have a good idea what it is all about...

Was pretty nervous yesterday and then the first section I rode I managed to fall off a bank.
Luckily it was muddy so was a soft landing  :lol8:

Yesterday for me was very much an exploratory outing and had very little idea on what to expect.
Now have a much better idea on what needs to be worked on / improved.  :thumleft:

The next trial is the year end training trial so should be good fun.

Congrats  :thumleft:

My son said that you were looking a little poked when you came around to his section  :imaposer:

I'm toying with the idea of riding the year end trial for fun...

Finally rode a trials bike on the weekend (thanks Bertie  :thumleft:)

Took it very slow, but was able to hop a few logs and stuff - been yearning to carry on playing ever since.  I'm afraid I may been infected....

Hi there Gauteng riders

are any of you oaks coming to Cape Town for the National trial on 15 and 16 October?  It is two days, and two different venues in the winelands.  Very nice riding areas ...
Shout if anybody needs help with logistics.

If you are not falling, you are not trying hard enough.
