Pancero -- that is the COOOLEST thing I think I've ever read on this forum.

Keep him going, Dave! and bring him down!

Pancero - if you can come to our place with Dave, we'll gladly toss you up on one of our bikes. it won't be a fancy <5 year old show stopper ... but we'll be sure you have some fun, get to play in the dirt, and get hooked first hand!!

You can keep it in my garage

It'll be great practice for Bolivia- maybe I should've got on one of these before Colombia

NWC,
I'd love to get to see her ride some time, if there's an event she might be at, or some other suggestion...

Don't suppose I could talk her and dear old dad into a visit to mid-central IL to play trials in a horse pasture or at a great local ATV park, could I??????????

Its not hard to talk me into anything when it comes to riding..
Are you guys going to make the Ottawa freebie ride?
Lots of people should be there, We have a OMA National We are going to in Tennessee.
So Kailey will be riding her butt off on the last one there..
We have a great area here in our yard, Always welcome to come up here..
we move stuff around to suit the needs, from hills to any size logs to 4' splatter walls.

We can get you to ride up 2 classes just in 1 day of practice, But you most likely wont be able to walk the next day

Just stay in touch, we also have access to the Trials gods ( Smage Acres ) indoor barn riding, so they will be at it all year round to stay fresh for the National trials next year
Hope to meet soon
Ron

Smudge,
PLEASSSSE plan to ride the new trials at Tilton ATV Park on May 4-5, 2013!! I can't promise no rain but we're going to be wishing for good weather for months in advance!! We've already started laying out sections and the loop is set. The Town Mayor (who manages the park as well) is thrilled to have us having the event. We're a part of the Trials Inc schedule and are talking with NITRO about being a points event for their series as well.

DJones - guess what! I was WRONG! That log was a whole 20" not 18!!! don't you feel better now? I sure do! Hope you can come down to visit and practice again soon.

Now I feel better! I looped out the Gasser riding wheelies over my pallet stack and just got the pipe straightened. Looking to ride this weekend- you guys want company Saturday or Sun?
