This guy takes every single ledge as a challenge when training in the city on its trial motorcycle and the results are simply fabulous. It doesn’t stay in one place too much so that it won’t create a crowd and because the city architecture has a lot to offer, it wouldn’t be in its advantage anyway.
What I like about this video is the fact that it doesn’t try to present the guy as an expert, but as an experienced rider who, normally, makes errors. What would you give in order to have the ability to do what this character does and experience as much as he does in a single day of city riding? I’d sure give a lot!
Training for the 2008 edition of the Festival of Speed is Dougie Lampkin which is allowed to make a round of Goodwood House and it does it in the best way it can: on a trial motorcycle.
The ride offers viewers of the video the opportunity to get a feel of the objects and people inside, exactly how they are. Even better is that they see it through a motorcyclists eyes and that is pretty much how they’ve perceive it anyway.
The trial champion makes an impressive incursion composed of many wheelies, stoppies and 90 degree turns from one move and it is very enjoyable to watch, even though I think it missed lost it on the narrow stairs area, just before reaching the roof. But why don’t you check it out yourself?

Among the riders who will overcome with great accuracy the natural barriers of 15 special tests in the beautiful resort of Friuli Venezia Giulia are names such as Toni Bou, Adam Raga, Takahisa Fujinami, Albert Gaberstany and many others
Motorcycle rider trainers will get their first opportunity to try out the new bike test for themselves ahead of its introduction in October 2008, as the Motorcycle Rider Trainers Association (MRTA) puts on a special trial event this summer. Organised in conjunction with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), the day will enable rider trainers to use an officially laid out test circuit to try out the off-road maneuvers that will be included in the new two-part test: slalom figure (...)

According to its designers, the trials quad concept shown last fall at the EICMA Show, is headed for production. The visitors at EICMA loved it and next thing you know, Scorpa is now looking at creating a production version, and is working on rideable prototypes with an engine of between 125cc and 200cc. Since I do not believe there is any sort of 4 wheel trials competition (is there?), this would be just for fun but it looks like it could be pretty (...) More
In the world of motorcycling there is now no getting away from problems connected with the environmental impact of emissions, and the corresponding restrictions. A direct consequence of this is the progressive shift from 2-stroke to 4-stroke engines, which over the last few years has also started to affect the off-road sector.
