New trials bike for me!

I bought a 2000 Beta Rev 3 270 from an inmate the day after Thanksgiving. I have just been putting around a little in the vacant lot next door, but today I took it down by the river to put around in the rocks a little bit. I am looking forward to getting a little bit of confidence and having fun this winter.
Maybe I will try to get some pics up tomorrow.

New bikes are fun. Took me for a learning curve when I got mine.

Congrats on the new bike!

I just got a used GASGAS TXT Pro 125 about 2/3 weeks ago myself and am having a blast learning better balance and slow control. looking forward to my first real out of the yard adventure soon!

congrats, IDA! (and jonny on your wife's new toy!!!)

Hope you enjoy your new friend half as much as I'm enjoying my new-to-me GasGas 80cc! (other discussion thread about the bike here on advrider).

Can't wait to see pictures of your new toy, IDA and Jonny your WIFE on her new toy!!!!!

I had the same bike. In fact, if you bought it in Idaho, you may have my old bike. I rode mine for nearly ten years, it was my first real Trials bike.
Hopefully we'll see you at some WA and ID events in 2013.

No kidding, I found out it doesn't take much for her to jump on top of you! She'll even throw me down to the ground and ravage me right in front of my wife!

I will get some pictures up as soon as I have a good day and remember to get the camera out when she is riding it, (just the bike would be OK but just not as good)

I am not sure about her chatting with the other gals on the forum, she isn't much into forums... kind of a bummer I know but I will see if I can convince her to join the forum and post... if not maybe I can get her to tell me what to say and just notate it as her???
