While watching videos of Japanese riders, I noticed they all have helmets with a dimmed screens.
Are they hiding their faces, or hiding direction of view, or it is just a trend? What is the reason?

Don't know about Japanese riders, however we have a very light concrete where we practice, and on a sunny day it is a big strain on the eyes, so I run with tinted visor as well. They probably wear those for the same reason.

Hi Michael R welcome to the wonderful world of Moto Gymkhana.

It will be worth your while going and having a word with the people at Pacific Riding School www.pacificridingschool.com as they have been looking at getting some Moto Gymkhana events up and running in Vancouver. I have been speaking to a lady there called Laurie Gennen so it will be best if you have a chat with her.

The Moto Gymkhana group over in Belgium has posted up some videos of their activities. Check out Bart Hoste on the ST1300, he can certainly ride a big bike!

Big thanks to Vulfy for getting this going.

I gave the Circle of Trust a go-round this weekend. I suck. I was only able to get about 3-4 consecutive rotations before I would screw up and go wide. It would happen right after I would look down at the cone beneath me instead of the cones across the circle.

I suppose I was doing ok for having less than 2,000 total riding miles. Every time I got frustrated with the circle I'd take a spin around the parking lot; saw some improvements in my braking technique!

Looks like you guys picked a nice day, I seriously thought about swapping my ice wheels for my Sumo set and joining you, until I saw the weather forecast for Wednesday

Think I'll keep the spikes on a little while longer

Nice

Simple, transparent and user-friendly.

I hope that the forum will come to life and that the website will be regularly updated.
