New rider Northern Beaches syd

Postby junek » Fri Apr 24, 2015 5:43 pm

Hi all. Im Jamie.

Just got my first trials bike today. Sherco 250 2011. Bike is in pretty good shape and has been well maintained although it could do with a bit of CT18 and a pressure washer!

Few laps around the yard and I am hooked. Surprisingly, it is significantly harder than youtube led me to believe!

I have ridden enduro bikes for years. At first i was interested in trials to help with enduro skills, But I;ve always admired skilled trials riders, so will probably do some club comps.

I live on the northern beaches and I'm keen to ride, so let me know if you are going riding on the north or west side of town (Pacific Park, Redhill etc). Have ute, will travel!

See you upside down on a rock somewhere.

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

Hi Jamie,

Congratulations on your purchase, you have seen the light & come from the dark side!

Do keep your bike locked up well though, we had two Sherco's stolen from the Northern Beaches in February. There is a bunch of lowlifes from the Mt Druitt area targeting trail bikes in our area.

Have fun with your new purchase!

Wayne.

Good tip!
Other bikes are insured, so I might see about getting this one insured too.
