  1. I really like my Sherco (2015 ST 250 (rear tank)) so maybe I am a bit jaded (I also live in Nova Scotia so it takes a lot less time to cover 100 miles ) and would consider that a reasonable drive for service. Personally I would take it back to the dealer and let him correct the issue. If the sherco's sit for a bit the clutch will stick but usually frees up after a little warm up. If there is a fuel line / carb issue it should be easily sorted. Trials bikes do tend to be a bit more fiddly than fuel injected street bikes but they are all pretty similar in that regard. I do agree it really sucks when you pay good money for something and are really looking forward to just riding it so would understand just sending it back (I just really enjoy mine so my vote is to give it a chance).
  2. Tired of static practice in the basement - Spring has Sprung in Nova Scotia...
  3. If you post a video it would be helpful in seeing what you may be doing wrong.
  4. I have a pair of these that I like as they have knee protection built in (and don't make me look fatter than I already am). About — Up and Over Trials
  5. We have them in Canada too... 2021 EVO 200 | Beta Canada

  7. Hi Frank, The Canadian Beta distributor has very kindly offered to bring along an extra bike for you if you want to join us Sunday. Given the people who have said they are coming we will likely have a Beta 200 2T, 250 2T, 300 2t, 300 4t, and my Sherco 250 2T... plus whoever else might show up :). - He also mentioned the 300 4t demo is the last one they have.
  8. Always happy to share my bike... sent you a PM :).
  9. Hi Frank, Be sure to check out the Maritime Trials Riders here in Nova Scotia we are actually having a fun ride day this Sunday in Elmsdale. The Canadian distributor for Beta is in Nova Scotia and very supportive with bring out demo bikes plus most of us are willing to let people try our bikes. We had our last trials event last weekend but we may have an indoor event this winter... and there is always next season :).
  10. the body position one doesn't really talk about wheelies but there are some good points in this one and you can see people rolling there ankle as suggested...
  11. There is a video out there about body position but might not be what you are looking for
  12. Yeah Dad was posted in Norfolk (with NATO) and we lived in Virginia Beach. It was an interesting time as it was the days of "bussing" which was a really tough racial social experiment and the draft dodgers had just been granted whatever it was that let them return to the States, so as soon as you told people you were from Canada they just figured your Dad was a draft dodger - not very popular in a Navy / Airforce town (typically led to getting a good beating). I did however get my first dirt bike and my first hand gun so it wasn't all bad.
  13. Yes I have to admit that here in NS our life is very protected and I probably should not have chimed in (oh well). Dad was in the Navy when I was growing up and I did live in many places around the world (even a year of junior high school in Virginia Beach) so I do have a bit of an appreciation for how good we have it. It just seems so scary to see a person with no real gun sense waving a gun around at people on the news little lone a political party encouraging that sort of thing. Full disclosure - My Great grandmother actually shot her husband because he "might" have been unfaithful... shot him in the groin - but he got so upset about being shot she shot him again and killed him. I have always enjoyed shooting but believe poor gun handling should not be encouraged as it can have really bad outcomes.
  14. I guess when the couple was on there and she was saying something like "You can get a gun and go on youtube to learn how to use it" and her husband replies with "that's right hunny" It seemed more like an SNL skit. We recently had a guy here who bought a bunch of guns illegally and a couple of police cars then went out shooting people (Killed 22 - shot 13 burned the others in their homes). Just hate to see anybody promoting poor firearm safety.
