Observed Trials Tech

So what's this all about? It's about trials and making your trials bike perfom better. This blog is to share ideas and expose trials riders to technical improvements for both modern, vintage and twinshock machinery.

The God of Speed

Last Saturday Mikey P, Pap and the Guru made a trip to Paris, Tennessee that is, to join Fearless Charlie and his gang to survey their riding area for use as an ITSA trial venue for the 2007 season.

We were greeted by the strange creature you see here. After inquiring as to the nature of the icon, we were informed that it was in fact the God of Speed. Charlie conveyed the story behind the transformed log, but I think I'll wait until we're all together at the Paris trial and let him explain it to you.

Now back to the reason we went. Do they have a good place for a trial? No, they have a great place for a trial.

We're going to be working on the 2007 schedule over the next couple of weeks, and we will definitely be putting this event on our schedule so stay tuned as to when. Hopefully the next time we blog about this place we'll have some neat shots of the crew creating some ITSA worthy sections. Or maybe just one of Nubbie tearing down a section with his motorbike.....and his head, like last Friday, but that's a whole 'nother story.....

    Hey I stayed late over there, sitting around the fire talking and whatnot. I look over once and I swear this big wooden head has that long finger stuck up his nose. Troubling, to say the least.
    But hey, it is a great place to ride.
