  1. Anyone know about this?

    Aye but there were 11 of them, and all they had to do was kick a ball about.....................and get well paid for doing so. Your lad, well done to him, by the way.......achieved summat any of those highly paid posers couldn't even dream of doing.
  2. BOOTS!

    One big + for me, although not found I need it, is they also do a 'waterproof insert'..........which, on a multi day WET trial might be a bonus. (as I say, my feet have remained dry all the times I've worn mine, and that has involved scrabbling about in stream beds, when I've dropped montesa.....)
  3. BOOTS!

    I wear Forma Boulders, and find them comfy for all day use, also wear them for when greenlining.......again, no issues.
  4. Dead easy trials?

    Roll on retirement................and the move away from the crowded south, to Penrith. (and a good smattering of clubs running trials in the area)
  5. First Aid at Trials

    Having brought a rider back to life after he suffered a (suspected) heart attack, whilst on an isolated Byway, a few years ago, whilst I can appreciate, and laugh at the above scenario, its just amazing just how much you remember - when faced with summat like that, yes, quite a while previously to that incident,.. I had attended a basic first aid course....in the days when it was 'breath of life and chest compressions'. (And in the days before mobile phones were as available as they are now) Think the Op was right to raise this subject............and I think its generated a healthy (pardon the pun) conversation.
  6. Decent trials tyre

    Hi Rabie, the tubless issue would not be a problem, as I run tubes;
  7. Decent trials tyre

    Thanks motovita, might have to go down that route here in the uk.
  8. Decent trials tyre

    Cheers, mate.
  9. First Aid at Trials

    I don't think OP was suggesting going the Ambulance route, etc, just that if there war any first aid trained riders/ observers in attendance, they be identifiable; By the very nature of accidents, any Fiist Aid, administered 'on site' is just that.........First Aid; Regarding liability........it would be a pretty poor day if the person trying to help someone in trouble (of whatever kind) stood back and worried about any repercussions.......(and here I'm speaking as a First Aid trained person) Another point here,.........whilst yes in an ideal world, 999 is last resort, in some area's of the country, any sort of phone reception is hit and miss. Can understand your reasoning, On It, for your post, as well.............tis an interesting topic, maybe's as Trials 'like some other sports', is moving forward, and sections are by the very nature of the machinery being ridden, now, are getting more technical, the OP's raised question does have some relevance.
  10. Decent trials tyre

    Whilst on the subject of decent Trials tyres, I'm looking for a 3.50x18 (no idea what that converts to in new sizing).............Have found one on ebay, not a known make a far as I know, and I guess at a push it will do the job, - but ? Cannot go 400x18 as it rubs on swing arm Bike is a 70's 123 cota, which originally had 17" rear wheel............ Anyone any idea's ?
  11. First Aid at Trials

    All good and valid points
  12. 247 bash plate

    Reading with interest this thread, after spectating at Highland Classic this year,.........looking to enter next, and coming from a county not noted for rocky going (southern England), am looking to fit external bashplate to my 123 cota......extended to cover underslung clutch arm.,..also moving footrests back n down slightly, so thanks for pic's Wobbler.
  13. Highland Classic Trial.....Montesa Edition

    Cracking event...............walked the sections on the Sat........hail, thunder and lightening to make sure I didn't get too warm........., just getting to sections would be classed in the 'expert' ratings down here........... going to get my finger out, prepare Mont for rocks, (better bash plate etc) and hope to get an entry for next year...........SWM Edition.
  14. Show Us Your Montesa!
