    Gas Gas factory bike detail

    I dont buy into either of them reasons for that bar between the bash plate. Lead.!? Why would you put it there. To miss the dog bones? why would you want to lower the ground clearance? Could it be to stop the bike from sliding backwards when on top of an obstacle if you get it hooked over a ridge giving you the freedom to lean right back without the brake? Just my thought. Anything official on this or does anyone know as a fact?

    How good to do ssdt?

    Deffo do the Reeth 3day. I have been told by Six day riders its a good measure minus the road work and obviously six days of it. I fancied the six days but this certainly woke me up to how fitness is so important, especially if your getting stuck a lot and are having to keep dragging, pulling and lifting your bike. Good luck, hope you make it.

    Five or not?

    With regards rear wheel out. It is rear wheel spindle. At a recent Amca meeting, I proposed changing the rule to front wheel out but most the clubs wanted it left as it is. This is a problem as most riders especially in self observing situations, mark front wheel out. Quite a major decision sometimes when you manage to get your front wheel out then slide back in. Its a five for some and a clean for others.

    Hello everyone.

    Hello frenchy3. Where are you based.? we're in the midlands. One of our club members has a very nice scorpa for sale. Around the £1000 mark. Wouldn't normally recommend a bike but I recently heard he had it for sale. He's an older generation rider and its been used for exactly what it was meant for, cleaned and maintained properly. Tom
