Hours after meeting Gary LaPlante and this is the kind of stuff he puts you through. Awesome.
I recently had the opportunity to sample trials riding under the eagle-eyed tutelage of former Arizona State trials champion and nationally ranked competitor, Gary LaPlante. I didn't use a top-secret industry contact to find the guy hiding under some rock. Instead, he crawls all over the top of them and welcomes anyone to join through his services at MotoVentures
Trials is just the tip of the MotoVentures iceberg. Gary offers training on regular dirt bikes for riders ranging from kids to grandparents. They also do off-road tours. Gary was well-spoken, knowledgeable and passionate. This is a great way to spend a day for locals, or set up a vacation to visit. Either way, check out the photo of my newfound trials skill and consider that I’ve never straddled a trials bike in my entire life before meeting LaPlante. This is something every motorcyclist should experience.
