    Trials bike for Tahr Hunting?

    Who is using a motorbike to get into their hunting area?

    Im still using a 2002 XR250 but these guys take it to another level....



    Julien Dupont vs Arthur Coutard in FREERIDER - YouTube

    These guys have the way down sorted....

    Yip that froggy is pretty talented ,i had a GAS GAS 250 Trials for a play bike , some thing different from the KTM SX - i rode up the umukarikari track to the tops a few times and a shit load of other places ,Doc put them nice stairways in on some hiking tracks trials bikes make short work of them down side fuel tank is not made for tripping only a couple of litres is it , you've gotta carry gas in a back pack . Quad, horse , motor bike, or walk i use them all just depends where im going .

    Thats true Bill999, I bought a Honda TLR 250 Trials bike brand new in 1987, kept it for 20 years and sold it to Steve338, I think he still uses it for hunting, excellent means of transport.

    Except for having to stand all the time and nowhere to tie on deer.

    I have a quad and an XT225; I hardly use the XT - the quad can carry a load so much easier.

    But man, the two dudes in the vid can ride!

    That's how I carry mine Kudu, the arms get a bit sore on the xr but it's a good way to get from the back of the farm in the wairarapa to the woolshed. One possie in Pongaroa has 14 km of tracks, none of them flat. large bodied redskins push me into the ground without a set of wheels to get me back. Fallow and sika are great to carry but their stags can still get hefty.

    Xr200 & Crf450 are my go to bikes. Not so practical for hunting with big packs on etc. Thinking about buying a decent quad for hunting and fishing etc.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
