LEXINGTON, Ohio &mdash Sam Fastle, Logan Bolopue and Kylee Sweeten are just some of the riders that are a part of the Xtreme Trials exhibition that takes place at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki.
In the show, riders move their bikes incredibly nimbly over difficult and challenging obstacles, including a 7-foot-tall box.
Logan Bolopue loves the atmosphere at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days
The three riders who participated in the trials demo on Saturday compete year-round as a team, racing trails events as professionals but enjoy coming to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days every year.
“This is only my second year here, but I really like the vibe here,” Fastle said. “Most of our races are out in the middle of nowhere, so it’s cool to have so many people watching us do our thing.”
The riders perform at events like AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki and practice on mountain bikes to perfect their skills on a motorcycle.
Kylee Sweeten enjoys performing in the trials demo when she isn't racing trials events professionally.
“Whatever skills you learn doing this, you can apply to riding any kind of motorcycle,” Sweeten said. “Things like center of balance, throttle-and-clutch control and things like that translate to any kind of riding and make you such a better rider.”
For Bolopue, being a part of the trails demo is a way to blow off some steam and have fun, but still practice riding his motorcycle.
“Trails riding is all I’ve ever known,” Bolopue said. “So coming out here and getting to share this with a ton of people who love motorcycles as much as me is cool. The vibe at VMD is just awesome.”
