I would rather watch a guy on a 1000cc sportbike come in at 90mph and yank the front wheel up, then roll the length of 3 football fields.:icon_bigg
wheelie wheelie endo endo burnout wash rinse throw one leg up repeat and call it a new "stunt". nothing new there. the trials trick were way better.

I liked the first video. Seems like its alot harder to do, probably why you dont see many people riding one wheel on the walls cuz it looks like you may need experience on a mx bike first.

don't get me wrong people both take skill and both are more skill than i have. But let's be honest here the trials stunts take waaaaaaaaaaay more skill than big bike stunting. almost like being with a flexible woman and a woman's that not flexible. you can do more tricks with the woman that's flexible than the one that isn't.

I think it's the other way around. Trials bikes arent ment for faster speeds and I would rather have a trials bike land on me than a big stunt piece with a 12 on it.

It's like apples and oranges guys....

You can do things on a trials bike that you cant do on a big stunt piece. In the same token, there's stuff on a big bike that you cant do on a trials bike. Me...? I prefer stunting big bikes, but they're both awesome in they're own respects.....

There's alot. Like Highchairs, sitdowns, sitdown circles, highchair circles just to name a few. I could go on and on. I'm not knocking it, but I think most can agree with me on the fact that you cant do things on a trials bike that you could do on a big bike.....:dontknow:

I've ridden Mtn Bike trials. A trials motorcycle isn't that far off. Wheelies, stoppies, bouncing in place are sickly easy on a gas gas. Mad skills that guy has, and I prefer trials videos to any big bike video simply for originality of the stunts. Like Paniro said, leg up, leg down, jump around, kris kross l' make ya.....big bikes all seem very rehearsed these days. Sure, mad skills, but not quite the originality I see in trials riding. As far as getting hurt, I cringe at what can happen in both. Sure a skateboard weighs 8 pounds, but those guys get f'd on a regular basis. That's why I love this forum...all kinds of new stuff thrown around.

Hate the song.

I think trials is something that is not viewed by everyone, so it may seem original to you but if you rode trials Im sure everyone is doing the same stuff.

ever ything you mentioned if i'm not mistaken is a variation of a wheelie. Like i said wheelie wheelie 1 leg up call it a new stunt. Do it while going in a circle call it another one yawn........

by the way let's not get started on you and the board members who have ran through you.

Told you i'm not trying to start anything but me saying in my opinion it seems Like a trials bike would be more of a bike that a stunt or trick would be done on. Sucks someone would take offense to it.
