Down here in the eastern centre there are 3 or 4 in regular use , mostly on the easier route although at least 1 is on the twinshock championship route.
This Trial was a Pre70 and Twinshock trial and also modern club riders. We get a good smattering of Odd bikes , there is a gorgeous Wassell with a ty175 engine fitted and also a Montesa with a yamaha engine fitted in the Twinshock class.
However as far as the Beamish goes they always seemed to solid and heavy to me with plenty of low down power but with not alot of top end and without the quick pick up of a Ty or particularly a Fantic (not good for modern twinshock trials ) maybe thats why that made such good sidecars in there day

And as for slippery this year was quite dry , now last year was slippery ! and Danbury is one of those grounds where once slippery, even a slope you would happily drive your car across in the summer becomes a real challenge .

There are some very talented riders out there still getting results on a Beamish but to be fair they would probably gwet the same result on a C15! I can atest to the fact that most Beamish are 'garage queens' and owned for their aesthetic or nostalgic value as opposed to the trials capability.
Are they any good? Depends on who you ask!

Does John still ride his triumph twin? I have always admired the way he rode it, the sound always made me smile

Yes true, but they could ride!... they'd have made a Honda C90 work too!
Must be some reason that Suzukis end up with half a bath tub and a stabiliser wheel attached to one side of them!
