I've been wanting to see some trials action in person as well, but I'm working straight through to this:

Doctors said you would need to go in his brain deep and with a microscope to tell anything even happened. We have that 250 screaming and he's dragging bars through the corners. Slowly working back into the races, he still feels a little jittery on the big jumps like the one he nosedived off of, but he's loosening up.

Birthday number 18 is coming up in August and I'm eyeing a klx 250 or Drz 400 for him.

Having your mechanic call on a Friday afternoon to tell you about the metal bits and pieces coming out of your GS's final drive is not a great start to the weekend. Dangit.

Well, it's probably about time for me to retire to something like a Honda CT-90 anyway. (not)
