Johnnygunn Posted May 19, 2022 Report Share Posted May 19, 2022 Good day all! New to the page and new to trials. I have kept up with it and watched, along with many forms of two wheeled racing, since I was about 10, as I am a total motorcycle enthusiasts! However I know nothing about bike selection, settings, what to look for, certain techniques, etc. So, I'm looking for some helpful direction. Some of my background: 32, 210lb, 6'3", have ridden offroad (US gncc/enduro) and motocross for 23 years. I have owned and ridden 250 and 300cc two strokes, as well as 450s and now a 350cc four stroke. I am by no means a pro or A level, but I am confident and competent enough to handle all obstacles (in my way 🎵) locally and get my money back in the B class here and there. But, as I've read, trials is no comparison! I recently rode a 125 and 300 trials bike (trs) that a national pro was kind enough to let me take for a spin, although just around his yard. The 125, I'm out.. lol but the 300 felt very controllable and even more fun. Everything I read says a 300 is too much and bad news for a beginner trials rider. However, the professional told me I should get a 300, and as long as I focus on technique it won't be too much for me. Should I go 300? I read fantastic things about the 250 motor. Should I go 250? Analysis paralysis... All info is welcome! Thanks 💪🏼 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
