Are there any trials riders here?

I was riding at at red river motorcycle trails in Muenster yesterday and came across a trials course. We eventually found some riders and watched them come up a section of the course. I met one of the guys keeping score and talked to him for quite a while about it. It really sounds like a lot of fun and to my surprise most of the riders were older fat guys like myself. I am definitely interested in trying it out and was wondering if anyone here rides one.

I used to ride trials when I had a Honda TLR200 Reflex. I liked it because I was going slow when I fell.

WE have a good group of trials guys that ride at Zars Ranch and I know the Austin group rides at Emma Long and I think what you were seeing
was the NTTA event up at red river, I wanted to go but just did not have the time to make the trip up

And yes most of us weigh more than the bikes

That’s awesome! Please don’t take offense to the old fat guy comment. I was mainly referring to myself! What is a good bike to start with?

Sherco, GAS GAS & TRS seem to be the most popular

San Marcos Motorcycles has some good deal as well as TJs and Munns

I think the KTM guy up in Denton has the GAS GAS line now as you are up closer to them
