    GS Trials Event at the Rally on Saturday

    I don't know all the names (of the riders), but it was great to be part of this. I'm sure some would have hoped I left, however Randy is a convincing person and he twisted my arm to unload the bike. I had (very) briefly considered leaving everything on to make it fair(er), but Mike (OUTBACKUFO) sceeeered me.

    There are many many more on my Smuggy account: http://PacWestGS.smugmug.com/gallery...35952626_QrYXK



    and no, it wasn't an "easy" course, Randy did a great job setting up something on short notice...



    Ready, set, GO!








    Next up...


    Ooops... (Nice save, that was a long way down)







    Mike (OUTBACKUFO) wanted me to shoot with his camera, but I snuck this one in:


    Youth and exuberance, and a very sweet airhead - no not the rider - the bike!










    Maybe you are now 'BUSTED' but I can assure your Dad the bike (and rider) did well!!!

    Some more...





    Big rocks lurked beneath the grass -



    Skidplate tester -



    Oh yeah baby, let's get some air! (which made it really hard to make the next course direction )



    A lot of fun was had by all - participants and spectators alike...

    I'm bummed that I got there late. It was awesome to watch y'all banging through the course Randy (Polarbear) laid out.

    i was impressed with how randy handled this event.

    i just wish i rode my G/SPD to the rally. i wasn't interested in taking the 1150 pig out one that course.

    down to those that did

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    It was a LOT of fun to bang around the course on the big GS - though if my shocks were done before the rally launching off that one jump finished them.
