  1. A chap in the cotswolds may be able to help with this , Jon Bliss , in actual fact I was looking at a sherco 4t creation of his only this weekend at a local trial, A newcomer to the sport had bought a really nice Late ? 4t ,I noted that it had been extensively worked on as it had a larger flywheel etc along with J Bliss stamped on the mods . An interesting bike along with the purchaser not knowing what he had bought either !. Sorry no contact details of Mr Bliss but somebody on here local to him may . Good luck .
  2. Strange thing is ,and others tell me that they get the same , I tend to be more tired on the Tuesday after the trial ! , I rode Sat and sunday this weekend ,was fine yesterday but feeling tired today . Any thoughts ? .
  3. Whats next ? blue badge area in queue ?
  4. Thanks for the response ,I ask because i am just about to do a full rebuild on my 305 including a re plate and piston so at this stage could fit whats best .
  5. I have heard that a piston from a later 309 can be fitted to the 305 motor to help the noise issue , is this true ? (ask greeves ) Thanks.
  6. There is no definitive answer , is down to what you want out of the sport and at the end of the day it is you on the bike getting the pleasure or not !. Iam very fortunate to have a bike for all disciplines and can honestly say that I enjoy riding them all and thats what its all about . Nothing is best its down to you to make your mind up .
  7. Thanks Gasser Guy ,see you soon !
  8. Where can we purchase the L R SO markers that we see in road based trials . thanks
  9. 2017 acu classic trials championship ?
  10. In all honesty having ridden the series since around 2007 I have always felt that the series was ,and should remain the domain of the older pre 65 bike ,and us twin shockers have really been there by invite and to make the numbers up therefore making the event viable . I have had no problem with this and have enjoyed many fine events held in lovely parts of Britain . I know its putting the clock back but I think the day has come for the series to revert back to its roots and become a British bike only event , what bikes qualify for that I will leave to the experts . I have also noted that the main problem areas relate to the pre65 class and very little is actually mentioned about twinshock so maybe its best if we stay out of the way . I remain doubtful that many of the people who post on this forum still would not follow a revamped series !. Lets be clear , call a spade a spade , the Kia series has hit the spot with a lot of twin shockers , expertly coordinated by Gerry Minshall and team ,good venues , well organised etc etc I have only ridden a couple since their conception but the numbers speak for themselves . I have concentrated on the Sammy series this year ,last round cancelled at short notice ,the one before that poorly supported this year . I think my mind is made up now as to what series I will follow next year !.
  11. Hi Dave, yes I personally sent off my questionnaire for which I received no response either. I hope my comments have been noted . I did not get involved with the pre 65 side of things as it does not concern me and is best left for those that do . My feeling is that the proposals are obviously written in good faith but look complicated to me and the reasons for which this series has taken a nose dive of late are more than just eligibility issues .
  12. Please could those interested in this series read the proposals outlined in the attachment below and provide feedback via this forum. Please note - I can give no explanation to any issues that may arise as I am posting this on behalf of others and the object of this exercise is to try and gather as much useful information as possible .

  13. Just to make it known that the club will be running an additional non championship class for those eligible for classes 3 to 6 who want to ride route 3 , (easy) , also there will be a club award for the best over 50 on this route who rides a pre unit or twin . the club is making an effort to encourage all who wish to have a gentle day out on a bike in a lovely part of Devon .
  14. Hi, Wondered if anybody local to the Isle of Man would know where on the island this event will start from ? thanks .
