I don't own a 4RT but my bro. in law does. I ride it more than he does - thanks Jamie. Only real trials bike I've ever ridden so I don't know what the others are like but I think the 4RT is great fun. I had it out in some of winter snow that we had a bunch of this past winter - too much fun - like powered skiing.

Just to contribute something - both Jamie and I are 6'-1" or so and felt too hunched over while riding. I got a set of "trials high" bend bars but these didn't make a big difference. Then I saw a set of offset bar risers (like the Rox ones) and put a set on the bike. With the angled bar mounts that the bike has these risers are just the ticket. They raise the bars and push them forward which feels much better to us. We now stand more comfortably upright and I find even 30 minute stints on the bike to be 52 year old back friendly.

Cheers,

SRG

My close cousin has a 4rt. Him and me go riding quite often and his bike is a blast! I would trade my heart, soul, and all possessions for it.

Heres a pic of his bike and my Beta

I have an 07 repsol also, it's pretty tricked up now and I love it, it has mitani front pipe, mitani clutch, larger clutch master cylinder, wes silencer which is so quiet, carbon airbox, renthal fat bars, hope top yoke, hope foot rest hangers and pegs. Here it is in it's various different colours as I have a few sets of bodywork :) most of it's custom painted colours that I just think looks better.








Its currently looking like this


me in action :)

Had to add my 4RT to this thread. These goof-off pics were taken last weekend at the San Ysidro Trials area......




....a small down.......





This is just for fun.....





What a beer-drinking, smirking poser!





NMTrailboss goofing off on his......




....making it look easy!





Love these things. Got it bad, too. Just agreed to pick up an old Montesa 314 to add to the HRC/Montesa stable. But that will be continued in "Outright Junk".....
