This is a pic from Saturday. I haven't had a chance to get the pic uploaded till today. About 6 to 8 inches on the ground, which is about all the Sherco could handle. Still tons of fun!

Looked for a manual for the Supertrial after not being able to figure out how to pop the seat off...

On the date of the OP question, the GG and I were the trialsmaster for our club event. The temperature at start time was 19degrees with a windchill of 7 degrees. The day before the event, when setting up the sections, it was 45 degrees.

Today ?



Took the old GG out to my favorite spot and was promptly reminded of just how bad I suck at trials. Spent most of the time sacrificing my body to keep from scratching the bike up too bad, went home sore and cried myself to sleep.

And here they are.

Before-



and after the installation of some Domino Beta bars with 1.5 inches cut off each end-




I wasn't exaggerating with the "Speedway Bend" joke. This view is the same as if you are on the pegs-




Cool bend, though-






NOW we'll break the frame......
