    The kids just need a quite place to practice, and maybe an electric to not disturb the neighbors:

    I'm too old to learn the above level of trials riding but maybe I can put PVC pipe around TW's wheels and drift like these guys: It is very important in California to leave helmet, gloves and brakes at home when doing this, cheap tennis shoes are a must as well as enough air pressure in rear tires to keep pvc drainpipe from slipping off. Wouldn't want too much traction, need to slide to ride with the Drift Trike Mafia. Goodnight folks, enough silliness..off to bed to dream of electric trials bikes.

    Any Trials fans or riders here? I cannot believe no one liked these trials videos I lifted from Utube last night I for one am always impressed with stellar bike control at low speeds, it just seems like good skills to develop irregardless of what we ride and basics do carry over into TW trail riding.

    I recognize the Dad. I thinks he's an old time member and poster. Can't remember his name. Great poster with lots of video's. Does a lot of ghost town travels on west coast. I think he even started his own 200 Forum. It will come to me.

    I think he's : Hodaka Guy

    Many years ago, I loved stand up piloting. I 'd ride a 75 mile enduro and it seemed most of the time I'd be on the pegs. Now 75 and with a Dub, I don't find the stand up riding position comfortable. I have 2 inch risers on the bars. Then again, most of the riding I do now is tar or dirt road where being seated is fine.
