Advanced riders demonstrate skills that would be a challenge even on modern bikes. In NYACT, all competition is performed on air-cooled vintage bikes from the classic years of observed trials. Here we see David Murphy navigating a tight turn on his 1981 Fantic 240.


Camaraderie is a big part of the vintage trials experience. Here, two long time NYACT members Carl Peters and Kevin Carey , are discussing strategy at a NYACT event

The second NYACT trial of 2020, originally scheduled for June 14 in Warsaw, has been postponed until further notice. Our Trialmaster, Gary Appleton, is willing to conduct the event later in the year, if that proves feasible.  This action is disappointing to everyone, but safety continues be our primary concern as our state begins to open up.
