oh sweet action…so you have recovered from your little tree mishap then?

We saw an ossa go up for sale shortly after you said you got hurt. We thought it was yours! Hope all is well….

gotta come out to ioco for some trials on trials trails! ha

Yep, I'm all good. Thanks for asking.

I did see that bike. It looked pretty clean with a few upgrades.

I do need to get on some real trails, but being able to ride right in the backyard (5 acres with my DH mtb trail) and on a trail up the street has been keeping me fairly entertained. :D

Which one? The 2011 TR280i was around $5000 all said and done, and the 72 belongs to my Dad so it is kinda free. :D

Bob at Ossa Canada has some used bikes if you want to look at prices.

My Dad bought this one new but had it sitting in storage for the last 20 something years. They are a pretty neat bike but hard to ride compared to the modern version.

Wholly crap look at the size of those levers! Guess with the old school you need the pull on the cables and such!

Well I did some moto moto this weekend. ripped up chipmunk and timnuk (sps?) in chillwack area. Pretty fun to test the trials skills on a big bike (ktm 200). Different riding style thats for sure. gotta sit for the grip at times. But had some fun. We blazed the mountain tops near buffalo jump but hit the snowline at the last pass.

Thanks to apt for the sponsor and Knight for breaking me in! Anyone got some trials time later in the week or Saturday afternoon? brap…put put put

The other day, Rat and I went for a little ride in the forest. this is where we came out.

This is what it looked like ahead of us, so we kept going.

Next thing we knew we were at the top of something.

Everything felt so huge!

It actually couldn't have been any better conditions

So we kept going for awhile longer. Pretty soon it was like we were on another planet.

Even when we got back to earth it was still pretty overwhelming. We had to hang out for a bit.

All and all an awesome ride. I can't wait to go back.

I used to have a 72 ossa ISDT they pretty much used the same 250cc engine for the trials/enduro/moto-x/ISDT/flattrack models they just playied with the tune and gearing

they were big heavy beasts
