naw dude... i am 40 and i don't think they make bicycles big/strong enough for someone of my height/weight to do stuff like that... i would have 2 pieces of non-working bike and a emergency room bill that would equal the GNP of most 3rd world countries...

thats why my bike has a motor...lol..

Yamaha used to make a Trial bike and it was called "El Gato" (Translation, "The Cat"... for those of you who skipped Spanish 101 in High School ), anyways, my dad had a 125cc and he got us an 80cc, which btw, we hated it since the seat was extremely close to the pegs.

Tried doing easy stuff on it but I was never able (never pushed myself either) or never found the fun of it until I saw what a few of those guys could do on it. One of the most incredible (and easy things to do) was to balance yourself on the bike to the point of not needing the sidestand.

Watching a Trial Run race is one of the most cool things I have done so far in my lame life

I used to think that popping wheelies and jumping homemade plywood ramps held up by cinder blocks was cool. God, I feel old and talentless.

The best is in the tunnel and at the end off the bridge when all the onlookers run up to see the crash...

The song fit the video quite well too.
