    Evo factory 300 2017 v’s 18

    How do. Are there many differences between the 300 factory bike between the 17 and 18 models. A mate of mine who has had both says the 18 is the much better bike, suspension, clutch etc. Reading up on the specs and claimed improvements there doesn’t seem to be any difference?!!! Your thoughts please. Is there 18 spec factory bike a big improvement over the standard black model?

    2019 RR Vs One

    I’ve got a 17 RR 280. It’s done ssdt and Manx twice as well as usual stuff and it’s spot on. Only 2 weaknesses are 1. Water pump seal. If you over fill level in rad it will go to leak externally if you push on down a road. 2. The pivot point on the chain tensioner is ***** and wears out quickly. Fitting a small bush will cure that. Other than that bang on. I had mine from Bvm in Stroud and they are bang on

    That’s good, because as nice to ride as they are, being a GG they’ll need plenty of bits

    FACT. Was talking to a lovely lady that saw it happen. He stopped, the whistle blew, and observer indicated a 5. At the point the crowd, realising the consequences, went mad at the decision and the observer did a u turn. Total horse ****! Surely there’s grounds for an appeal?

    Looking at social media and speaking to someone who was there yesterday, it appears that Marcelli was given a 5 in section 15 that if it stood would have changed the whole outcome of the world title. He was judged to have stopped, the whistle blew and a 5 was indicated by the observer. At that point the crowd kicked off big time and the observer, realising the potential ramifications of his decision, backed down and a clean was given! I don’t think we can argue that Grattarola was worth the win but sounds like Toby got shafted!!

    Vito Compact Dualiner

    I’ve got a long and when carrying 2 bikes I just fold the seats. I know your on about the compact but there’s plenty of slack length wise and I think there’s only 9 inches of length between them

    Scott trial- What to expect/how to prepare

    Bloody hell john, you’d lap it twice in that time!

    Scott trial- What to expect/how to prepare

    Truth is it is nervousness at the start, then you settle in, and it’s fine for a petrol check or 2, then reality kicks in when the top boys plough past, then the general pace takes its toll and you start to get knackered! After that it’s a case of auto pilot and hang on as best you can! Sections are of a good national standard, but the pace and general tiredness makes them a lot harder. Def try to stop and have a quick look before entering each section. Your rushing but it will pay dividends. In terms of training I found best approach was as much trials bike time as poss but what also worked for me was a lot of miles on a road push bike. Helped with fitness and stamina. Last thing I’d say is nothing can prepare you fully for it as it is unique but whilst it’s murder the atmosphere and encouragement you get from the day is as one off! just make sure your as fit as can be!

    And what was that?

    Dougie Lampkin book...

    Finished it today. Best bike he’s ever had was the 99 techno. You’d think the last 315’s would have been the 🐶’s 🥜’s! And who would have thought hrc would present DL and Fuji with such a pile of 💩 4rt to start with!!

    Montys in Trial 2 this season

    Most of these lads run out of satellite teams and it’s fair to say the bikes are not standard. Grattarola’s bike for sure is pretty trick. I suppose the big difference is bou’s bike is covered in special factory bits that money can’t buy. These boys are mainly using parts and mods that you can buy off the shelf, if you’ve re mortgaged your house that is...

    How good to do ssdt?

    All I would add to that is yes Ross noble finished it but to say he had the rubb of the green is an understatement! He probably attempted/rode less than half the sections all week and would never have finished if he wasn’t a celeb and a lot of blind eyes were turned! Fair play to him for having a crack though and he did more to publicise the sport than anything over the last few years! To answer the original question I would say you need to be at least a good intermediate centre rider to stand a decent chance of finishing

    Bill Myers....

    He’ll like you for that. I’d say bill would be early to mid 60’s now. Must be than dark ale...
