Recommended Posts

A trials bikes sub 160# weight and 13+ inches of ground clearance are some of the main reasons they can do what they do...  :p

That doesn't even touch on the riders skill level.   :rolleyes:

my inspiration videos.. hope to see the crf250l do alittle of these stunts.

 

underpowered, and heavy, demands more higher skill set.

I don't think you can have a higher skill set then Toni Bou or be able to ride obstacles or do stunts with less power either.  :excuseme:

 

He can do wild shit with the engine shut off and still not drop a foot.  :smirk:

Yup, here's a young Graham Jarvis riding in a trials competition that he raced in at 1988 at age 12.  :p

Wouldn't work for observed trials because the bar stops do not allow for the handlebars to swing full left and right stop like an actual trials bike. The 250L is a dual sport bike so it already has wider turning radius than a pure dirt bike. 

 

+1 on the power to weight ratio too. It's double the tonnage necessary.

you don't need much power for this, only momentum. Trial bicycles do this with only leg power. Doesn't look like those little trial bikes are powerful anyway.

Nobody said you can't do it - feel free, go ahead, enter your 250L in an observed trials event. If you don't have a 250L yet and are considering it for observed trials events - go right ahead. :thumbsup:
