    I had a serious sportsbike crash a few years back, I want another bike! I have moved and would never enjoy sportsbikes and crusing again like I did in the past, without the guys I started with. I have always been interested in trials bikes, although I have never even seen one in person. Does anyone have any info on trials in Canada? Even better do you have a bike etc?

    Trials or Trails? Honda made a dual-purpose trials styled bike? It was a dual-purpose/enduro kinda bike that was styled essentially as a "trials" bike but was powered essentially by a four-stroke 200 to 250 cc engine.

    I just searched the net and found nothing though.

    I did mean trials. They are bikes with no seat, sort of for obstacle courses etc. rock climbing etc. It is pretty popular in other parts of the world, with pro series etc.

    You should see the trial riders who do these crazy stunts on bikes without engines.

    I am still working at a simple trackstand!

    Oh I've seen what they do. Its awesome. Very cool. Bicycle trials is kinda cool too.

    Honda did make a dual-purpose bike that had very trials-like styling. Minimalist seating too. It was neat looking. 1988-1994 model year is my guess. They sold in Canada but I couldn't find anything on the net.
