Incredible trials bike ability
« on: January 11, 2018, 02:01:05 PM »
In 1973 when I was 16, I wanted a trials bike more than anything in the world. I never did get the bike I wanted, but I still enjoy watching the sport of trials.

I kind of remember trials riding becoming sort of a big thing in the States with all four of the Japanese brings having a trials bike in the quiver, then it just for of faded (in the States).  I imagine it's still popular in Europe.

Very cool Badger. I had no idea this even existed. Looks like it requires not only great balance, but also great strength and coordination.

Thanks for posting. Really enjoyed it.
