    Safer than lane splitting in LA . . .

    4 cycle “Trials” machines.
    Slow-speed for obstacle endurance, the bikes will come apart under the stresses moto-cross riding. Feet on the pegs at all times, it’s all about balance.

    not a death wish–just a real trail bike ride…very cool

    I’ve ridden on trails like that. Intense concentration is a must-turn your cell phone off!

    I remember seeing my first trials competition in the early 70’s. I was an enduro rider at the time and was completely blown away. Today in my 60’s I have to limit myself to road and cruising machines but I still love watching trials. Motocross and trials are two completely different aspects of our sport. Trials it seems has always been more popular in Europe than America though I don’t know why. I would encourage everyone to go see a trials competition. They are amazing.

    Awesome video!
    Sorry guys, those are not Trials bikes. They are modern Enduro machines. (Not to be confused with the street legal dual sport bikes that were called enduro bikes 30 years ago. These are true off road race bikes that share the same basic engine/suspension/frame platform with the cross country and motocross bikes.) I believe the bike with the helmet cam is a KTM, and I’m not sure about bike #2, but definitely not trials machines.

    #2 seemed like a better rider…its hard to give it a “big ball” rating cause I’m not there to see it but from the vid it looks intense.

    Maybe they are crazy, maybe they know what they doing, big balls to do it.

    I’m sure this is a fun and intense ride at times. Looks almost like the trials in the mountains of Seven Springs, Arizona where I’ve done some horse back riding. Our trails where less than half the width though. Always wondered what it would be like to dirt-bike trails like that.

    Thanks for the vid Cyril!

    Some ride a motorcycle for the rush, others ride trail bikes on a cliff while still some feel the need to stand on their seats with no hands-

    Well, I’m not certain how technically difficult the trail is, but I am pretty sure that the price of a mistake is a lot higher than I’m willing to pay…..

    I guess when you reached a certian level of trail riding something more and more challenging is desired, like this insane trail. I believe the most dangerous road in the world is the “Death Road” in Bolivia. This has to be one of the most dangerous trails.

    I wouldn’t have to stop to male pee-pee. I would have wet myself several times.

    Well, it’s official now-I don’t have a set or a hair in the area 🙁
