Did some riding and some picture taking at the RITC trials school. All the top riders in New England instruct the novices in techniques upto intermediate level and demonstrate some expert level techniques.

Bill McCormick and the RI trials club volunteers put on a great event I'd call "Trials University" in Exeter, RI yesterday.

Being taught by the top riders in New England who volunteer their time for an entire day is as good as it gets and these riders are what makes trials such a great sport. I learned quite a bit and hope I can use what I learned in the upcoming season.

You took some great pictures ESPECIALLY the ones of that orange gas gas.

What a great day we had

he called me yesterday right after i took a bunch of pictures, was going to pull parts motors a part and put them on Ebay, I figured with the average prices on ebay I would make around $2500, enough to buy a modern bike and keep my TL250. I have extra TL250 motor,200xr motor and complete running Yamaha 200 trimoto... not to mention a box full of small mikuni and keihin carbs, misc. shocks etc..
still not gettin my hopes up to high but maybe this weekend..

I am working on setting up a section and hear AnnMarie fall behind me. I turn around to see she had went over the bars and was trying to camo herself so she could not be seen. Actually she had no idea her helmet had picked up the camo. Asked if she was ok and then took the picture.

Casualties of trials...

Glad it was only a light casualty, lucky for me I haven't had anything more than just a twisted triple tree and a small bruse on my knee from one fall as of late. Guess I better knock on wood...

Great looking bike. Saw one at an event a few months back, very impressive bike.

Let the goodtimes roll!
