Got a copy on my bedside table. Probably re-read a chapter about once a month. Always learn something.

I have Don Smith's book "Ride It" and Bernie's book, no better way to understand where trials came from in the 60's and 70's and early 80's. I still refer to both books today.

My wife got me the book for christmas last year, its probly the best gift Ive ever got. I read it word for word, and even though trials has changed, I use some of the practice tips still.

Look at page 46. Bernie's is bunny hoping 14 people on a Bultaco SherpaT.

Remarkable.

I would like to see one of todays' top riders attempt that.

Funny that Martin, I used to able to bunny hop over a 5 litre can standing on it's end. Can't do that on a modern bike. Maybe the suspension has changed. Maybe I'm just a plonker.

Martin, when I was a member of the AZ club (CAT) in the early 70's was it you and one other Montesa team members that came over and did a school for us? I know how impressed we were, the majority of us were very new to Trials.

Anyway I looked for a pic of you in the book, but could only find the NATC Champ results for 1974.

Sorry for the bad copy.

Team California was leading the way.

After I posted this I found some old snap shots for the school. Its was conducted in Tucson.
