RMTA thread...??

Just got my first trials bike about 3 mos. ago and fell in love. Joined our local Rocky Mountain Trials Assoc.(RMTA) I know there are links to this website, but wanted to start a thread within ADV. Interested in hearing from other RMTA members(if there are any??) Open discussion thread to talk about event schedules/results, ask ?'s, post pics, places to ride, people to ride with, etc....or just drinking and trials talking.....no rules really

I just got another trials bike, after a 15 year hiatus. I had the bike for one week before I did the first event at Texas Creek. Good fun as always. I'm excited to be back on a trials bike again. I'm too slow to race, so this is a great way to get some friendly competition. I've never done the Lyons event, but I'm looking forward to it. Practice, practice.....

Will do...Don't have any high expectations for the event. As long as i don't come in dead last i will consider it a victory . And if i do, oh well i need more practice. Just would like to see what i need work on........

Planning on doing beginner/novice class and going from there. This is more of a "feel things out" event for me. Sorry you will be out of town. Maybe we can catch up some other time

Brake,
Welcome to the fun!
I'm an RMTA member and former NMTA member getting back into it after a year off.
I work in Wheat Ridge so we should get together some time for some Trials fun.
The RMTA people and club are great so I'm sure you will enjoy the sport and the group.
I'll probably be at Lyons on the only 4 stroke Sherco there.

Just got back from my inaugural trials event and i learn quite a few things. So i made a short list:

1. Every single person i met was awesome and extremely helpful
2. I learned of many new ways to take a "5"
3. When you clean a section once, doesn't mean you can clean it next time.
4. If you break your kickstart lever clean off, when kicking it, you get a "D.N.F."

All in all i had a great time, learned alot, and I'm even more "hooked" then before.


P.S. I met the GASGAS dealer at the event and have a kickstart lever on the way to be ready for next weekends event

Won't be making it this year. FMF falls on the date of our next trials event at Sipapu! So many events...so little time!

You guys should try to come down for the NMTA event in Lake Fork Canyon in the Jemez mountains west of Santa Fe on October 2-3. That is always an awesome event!
