I'm right there with ya! The pro's make it look like the bike weighs 30 kg and the steepest, gnarliest climbs like walking up a staircase! #-o

Re: Helmet, starting out ...

I'm not sure how much to spend on a helmet. There are options out there from $150 (Kenny) to 350+ for the Airoh TTR's which I'm attracted to because up here around Brisbane it gets incredibly hot and humid. Overheating been a big issue with my cheap full face helmet, and I'm investing in a ventilat...

Re: TY 175/250... opinions on suitability please.

Without over complicating it I'd recommend getting the newest bike you can afford for the money in your budget. Once you've been in the sport for a few months it will be much easier for you to pick and choose other bikes for future purchases. But for now I think your dollar is best spent on somethin...

Re: 2 or 4 stroke? (newbie here obviously)

Old trials bikes that would let me compete at the easier level of Observed Trials if what I've been told is correct. A modern trials bike can run in the grades: Intro * , Clubman, C, C+ * , B, A (and anything else higher) . I believe some clubs will limit a twinshock from anything higher than Clubm...

Re: 2 or 4 stroke? (newbie here obviously)

Easy stuff is where I want to start. I like to keep working progressively to improve my skills... with anything I do. The feedback is great jml, thank you. I really do need to get on a bike or two to try, and source something to buy. Now I well expand the range of what I consider though.... a $4k t...

Re: 2 or 4 stroke? (newbie here obviously)

Old trials bikes that would let me compete at the easier level of Observed Trials if what I've been told is correct. Not quite the full truth. An older trials bike will only limit your ability to ride in higher grades. A modern trials bike can run in all the grades that an older bike can expect whe...

Re: 2 or 4 stroke? (newbie here obviously)

My DR650 is set up with a 30 litre fuel tank, luggage, and a lot of other upgrades... and it is far more capable and easier to ride than my R1150GS was. I always felt like those beamers would be a handful off road with a full set of panniers on them. They have made them so good looking it almost ma...
