    The GS Trials

    this was fun... to watch.



    Randy Owens, Polarbear, was trialmaster, laying out a pretty challenging course at the local motocross track. The course featured a little of everything... tight turns, some steep slopes, off-camber hillside, drop-offs.



    Mike Rand, OutbackUFO, had a strong showing on his 1150, ultimately finishing third.



    a "dab" in the process of becoming a little get-off.



    Russ Moser, PacWest GS, was the victor, he cleaned the course on his first ride, and won the timed run-off between the other three riders who also cleaned on the first loop.



    Russ then got on a borrowed G650 and blasted around the course a lot faster than he rode with his Adventure.



    Then he loaded his bike and rode off for home in Seattle... by way of Glacier National Park.

    More of the MOA Trials... for you who want to know more info on how it was run... Polarbear set up a intermediate to advance course. a "dip" foot down or hitting a boundary line or obstical marker was 1 point... stall or stop with a foot down was 2 points and a tip over was 3 points... 4 of us finished first round with Zero points then did a run off via time and points penlities... Russ finished second round with one 5 second penality but still burned through the course at 53 seconds total... second was Wade Stoughton at just under a 60 sec... with one penality... I finished third at 71 secs with Zero penalities ( i had to go first second round) and Nick on the '92 R100R was fourth... give it up for Nick on his dad's mint R100R with road tires

    Russ doing his stuff...

    (P.S. Those that know - tire did fine, it's worn out though, too many switchbacks and hairpins )

    Too many switchbacks and hairpins?

    How can that be?

    Ah yes!

    Highway 14 between Sheridan and Burgess Junction. A week ago when we were there we watched hang glider pilots "jumping" off that very cliff. I saw that the first time in that very spot in 1981.

    Somewhere on I-90 before I got very very wet... (Thursday night's storm - I rode though it)
