Default Back into trials

After eight years on enduros I got me a trials bike again. Of course its a Gasgas. A TXT 280 from '00. I had almost forgotten how much fun trials riding is. Are there any trials riders lurkin around here?

I have an 04 beta 200 that I play with. I sometimes think I should sell all my other bikes and just ride trials for 3 years ... that would certainly get my clutching and braking technique down!!!

Been loving trials for 6yrs now. Just wish I would have started ages before that. Now, if I was ever limited to keeping just one bike it would be it.

That is a clean looking 00 you have there. I've been wanting a trials bike for a while so I'm a little jealous.

I have been looking at a 2004 montesa cota 314 only problem is trying to get my wife to understand why I need it next to my dirt bike!?

Any good arguments welcome

Any thing too look out for on the montesa? Bearing in mind this will be my first trials bike. Have been wanting one for years

314r is a great trials bike. rock solid. i've ridden both 314 and 315. the 314 is a little heavier - but they felt the same to me. the 314 is cable clutch (but incredibly light pull), 315 is hydraulic. 315 is thinner at the knees. the 314 is quite a bit less expensive on the used market, parts are harder to find, but they are out there.


you said 2004? that should be a 315, not 314.
