Trials bikes at the 2001 Barcelona International Motorcycle Show

Doc Wong has been trying to get everybody to ride trials bike to improve balance and coordination. While I haven't made up my mind yet to get into this aspect of the sport. From what I know, I started to look at some bikes that to my untrained eye were 'climbers' or 'trials' bikes.

Over in Europe the dirt magazines cover lots of trials activities and for beginning junior riders it's now an accepted way to come up through the ranks for MX, supercross, enduro, or desert racing as top trials riders do have phenomenal balance.

There wasn't anybody in the booth so I can't tell you anything about this bike.
