Chris Johnson’s Observed Trials School

My wife Kay and I recently attended an “Intro to Observed Trials” school put on by Chris Johnson and his wife Claire at their Buffalo Dream Ranch in Lawton. The class taught us the basics of trials riding, with an emphasis on how those skills transfer to our normal everyday riding on dirt bikes, dual sport and adventure bikes.

I produced a quick podcast interview with Chris where he talks about the school, what skills you will learn, and what gear to bring.
