  • cross training?

    hey guys, there's been a bit of discussion about what sort of rides we'll do when strummer hits the dirt again and it will probably be doing slower more technical stuff.

    claire and i already have trials bikes, and quite a few of our mob (including strummer and jo) are looking at getting into trials too.

    is anyone interested in some cross-training? e.g. dirt riding with a trials influence. if so, i might tee up something for sat 29th of march. if there are a few takers i'll start a thread for it. probably start with balance, full lock turns, and small log hopping...

    this would be on dirt bikes but learning more of a trials-based approach. you don't even really need a dirt bike, i've been applying some of this stuff to the DR650 too.

    • I'm keen on the cross training Just have to see how the back holds up closer to the date (things don't look good but hoping to get something on the go this coming week).

          • no worries guys, once i can sort out a date i'll start a new thread. strummer may pop along on the DR650 too!

            i should stress this will all be quite boring unless you are keen on some cross training... we'll probably be on flat ground the first time out just doing figure eights and having "slow" races to get the balance happening. then just look for some trails to put it into practice. these vids will give some basic tips:
            balancing
            full lock turns

                • great idea

                  I'm in if not working. sounds great for learning more. How much of a hard time will I get for bringing a DRZ to a trials day though?

                  • well, it's cross training which means riding dirt bikes but applying some trials techniques so after a few weeks we should be riding like graham jarvis. i'll be taking the FE570 as my steed...

                    here are some good cross training tips for jarvis himself.

                    in a nutshell, he says learn trials techniques, go slow, master the clutch, develop balance.

                    • I would be keen on this if there is room, would be good to learn more control on the bike.

                            • cross training ride tomorrow (sun 23 march 2014)

                              hey guys
                              sorry on the late notice, just needed to make sure i didn't tweak my dodgy knee trials riding the past two days.

                              meet 8am at the mt mee state forest entrance at the end of mt brisbane rd here, the usual carpark spot if anyone remembers strummer's rides at mt mee.

                              as usual we'll head out fairly quietly so as not to piss off the residents across the road. this will NOT be the world's most exciting ride! as mentioned we'll do a bit of cross training so slow riding with balancing, figure eights etc then just head out for a slow ride putting the skills into practice. you'll be bored to the back teeth if just wanting a general ride.

                              please PM me with any questions. it's not officially being run by strummer but has his blessing... but don't want to hijack the thread regardless.
