Yep, thats what its for. Its called observed trials, not trails
Pretty much all it can do too. Gearing is too low to even go down the block, plus yeah, no where to sit. The older ones have seats, but most of the newer frames have no seat. Comp bikes.
Its called observed trials because in comps, you can only look at the obstacle course before you ride it. No practising.
Here is what a comp looks like. Well, for the elite riders anyway
Its not real big in the US, and even less popular in Hawaii.

Dug up a few older photos. When the winters are cold enough to build thick ice I usually race on frozen lakes in the winter, hasn't been good for about 5 years. Time trials like autocross but with no ditch or tree penalties. Snapshot from an old video camera from the opposite side of the lake.

This is the only image I had quick access to. Taken a few years ago and the only good couple of images I have of myself BMX racing. Taken when I was 39.

We took a couple years off when we bought a home. Hopefully we'll be back into it this year. Gotta wear off some fat.

I need cheaper a cheaper hobby. My 4 year old daughter loves to go flying too. We do a semi weekly tradition of going to the DQ to get ice cream, and then go flying. Just recently I let her have a go at flying. I wish I had a camera with me because she was so good for her first time flying! Very smooth, small inputs and unafraid to try. She flew me on a short cross country flight, then around the pattern down to final. I of course had to run the throttle and helped by trimming it out, but impressive nonetheless! Unspeakable pride.. A long tradition of pilots back to before WWI in the family - now another!

Used to do the trials thing too, plus XC and downhill riding. Would be nice to have another S-works frame like that Tabb! Just sold my Enduro last year - the relatively boring and relatively flat lands here aren't deserving of it..

My favorite past time when not flying is Geocaching. If others have not tried it, it's as much fun as flying. Really. Go to Geocaching.com for all the info.

A friend of mine does Geocaching. I never heard of it until a few weeks ago. Is it fun? What do you find?

I have a few friends who geocahce. Sounds like a lot of fun .

iflybyu77, that photo of your daughter in the pilots seat is priceless. I hope you have that one framed and up on the wall.

When not strapped into a Robinson you'll usually find me between the flags or racing rescue boats...

cmartin,

Nice rig. I used to fly the non-motorized version here in Utah. Considering flying a trike again if I ever bump into an extra $30,000.

cmartin,

I loved flying big mid day thermals, but for whatever reason, I always like the mundane big "sled rides". Hike to the top of whatever peak, launch just before sunset, coast to the LZ.

That's the appeal of the motor. Launch early or late, climb high, float around in calm, safe weather, land, repeat.
