You mean what his Mom did with him in his pram to get him started? :imaposer:

In my opinion, this is the most skilful guy in all of motorcycling. If you have ever ridden trials, you'll know that it ranks top of the difficulty set.

I borrowed a 290 Beta trails bike from X-Pat some years back, saw my arse 5 times in an hour! At that stage I was riding off road quite a bit and did 4 hardcore rides with Mark Taylor in Swazi, so I was not a newbie. Dubbed it the beenbrekertjie and never rode it again. I totally agree with 2SD that trials is the most difficult discipline in biking. What Toni Bou does is mind blowing!

Simply unbelievable to see yourself what actually is possible to do with a bike, incredible indeed!
I've not seen similar of Adam Raga yet, wonder how he (and others) train... but for quite some time already Toni's very much deserved the No1 of the World!  :thumleft:

Besides making an arse of myself, I always wanted to be a good bike rider.

Luckily, I'm very good at 1 of those things............  8)

You just need to YouTube Chris Birch, what Birchy can do on a big bike is astonishing..

Nice.... but quite frankly (specifically movie 2, 1190) it shows what the bike is juuuuuust capable of doing however only with a genuine champion on it!
That's bitofa bad marketing I think, hardly inducive of me running out and buy one.
I'm no Birchie, and it confirms to me why I always have thought the big Katooms to be too big, too unwieldy - for me, I don't need 200+ km/h on the open road, and handling all that weight offroad was never something I was looking forward to.
It also is the reason why, when I heard the 790 is coming, I put a deposit down on one - because a smaller twin, combined with KTM's rep will probably mean it will be something I can manage some of the tricky stuff on.
It did too, and the raving reviews caused the sold-out status when it was launched, and I've been to places already where I've been surprised I didn't struggle too much, bearable even - and I made it!
790 for me gents, call me odd, and no, no need for 'bigger' or heavier..... 890 anyone?  :-\

He must be very fit. For a while I had a trials bike and played around on some really minor shit compared to this. I was MTB and running fit at the time. After 45 min on the trials bike I was moer toe.

45 min, plok! Ek kyk drie minute dan blaas ek! Ek troos myself terwyl my asem terugkom dat hy ook seker iewers moes begin. Al is dit soos Dan se, met die pram moves.

Watch Pol Tarres on the Yamaha T7. Makes Birch look like a toddler.

Admittedly Birch was on an unwieldy Vtwin.
