Well, their problem is most likely that they don't believe you, because for 5 months of riding that is VERY good (for urban anyhow). Or that they think those accomplishments are "lame" because after 5 months of riding it appears you haven't touched a piece of natural, which many here consider "true" trials riding.

:cool:


You sound like you are from england, which makes me say you have FUCKLOADS of riders. If you aren't from england, then I'm sorry. But if you are..


Good heights and things, which mean nothing for trials.

the problem is id love to do some natural but there is none near me. And i have improved the way i have because i just practise and concentrate and believe i can do things i did 3 foot today and couldnt believe it but i did it cos i just think wot im doin rong and change it. I like ridin on me own cos there is no pressure and u can concentrate but there is no1 to improve with and watch to get inspiration. All i have done is looked at things and said next weekend im gonna do that and then just keep tryin till i do.

is it just me, or are we getting a mass invasion from T-O.com? Its funny how the terms defined on that website depict the people who go there.

You call it "Japslap". I call it: WHoa, I fucking made it! Lets getta beer.

Well now. You've just begun. Finish these techniques and check back with us later:

Drive your car 145 mph, backwards
Drink 6 guinness, stand on one hand and sing 'beat it' by michael jackson
720 endo to an olly grab out snitch snatch
remove the decimal point of your drop, and make it 55 foot... oh, and you have to land it smoothly
y-up, z-up, and 7-up
