  1. You cannot shut off on a 4RT and then expect to recover grip, like you can on a 2t bike
  2. I am sure it will be safe, however you made need top ups or boosters Vaccine is the only way out of this, no other way talking to Medics (as I have been) Letting it run through the population, would be carnage and to achieve herd immunity naturally via infection would take decades (and a new virus will be there to get us) Unless we have an effective Vaccine - we will be in a state of semi (followed by permanent Lockdown) Lockdown, we will never get through this
  3. We have a new Vaccine👍
  4. Looks like all Motorsport permits, for the new lockdown period in England, have been cancelled by the ACU tonight
  5. So with the new lockdown, will practice grounds close and trials be cancelled?
  6. i have dabbled with twinshocks over the years Yam Majesty etc, but they are 30 years old and are costly to keep running week in, week out and I find the TYZ, a decent classic type alternative, for club trials It's well built, sounds great (induction) and goes well in sections and the suspension is ok too, plus it grips for England Non engine spares, can become a problem, but generally it's robust etc That said the 4RT is also a great bike (though not for all)
  7. I see, thanks for the explanation and makes sense, that they do the World rounds, for their sponsors
  8. I have more fun (and better results) on my 25 year old 1996 Yam TYZ 250, than my newer 4RT Such a great engine, still
  9. I see from the coverage on Facebook and ACU, that this last weekend's Devon round, had only 1, yes.......a single Championship Class rider and that was Iwan Roberts What is going on ? (I know Covid) The Trial2 and Trial Expert Classes & Trial 125 were well supported So is this what the British Championship has become? Too many classes, no blue riband British Champion?
  10. Why? It's a sporting event, outdoors with an ACU permit Sporting events are exempt from the 6 or less, are permitted
  11. My TYZ with a WES silencer sounds well throaty
  12. Thanks Andy, for your reply and much appreciated Interesting stats and debate
  13. Turn up and ride, plenty of helping hands and advice at a Trial Don't be afraid, you won't show yourself up
  14. I log on every few days, from time to time and click New topics Nowadays, every post seems about how to fix this bike or that bike, what's wrong with this grub screw etc Nothing about the actual sport of Trials I have noticed this over the past year or so (so don't blame lockdown) When Trials Central first started it was all about Trials riding, comps, views, differing techniques................now it's got boring and just like a Trials bike repair shop Last week I tried to discuss Trials after lockdown, the influence of social distancing at events etc..................what happened? 5 or 6 replies and that was it Does anybody actually compete on their bikes anymore or just go to play and practice? Years ago, you would get commentaries on the SSDT and Scott, plus WTC.................now nothing, last year's SSDT 2019 barely got a mention What's going on??
  15. Just asking for your views as the ACU committee will no doubt be reading all viewpoints
