  1. Scott trial- What to expect/how to prepare

    Becks went green early September but the moors are dry, apart from one mega deluge where I got soaked through in under 5 minutes I don't think I've got wet on my two days a week on the grouse. Rain for late in the week should make it nice & greasy on top, new front tyre essential.
  2. WOW- What a bike !!

    4rt or a second hand dog, if I ever buy either again my wife has instructions to **** me round the head with a shovel.
  3. Reed effects on engine character

    Some time ago we did a back to back test with 2x 290 sherco, one standard & one with boysen reeds. The bike with boysens had far too much go for our rocky & slippery beck sections.
  4. Goggles or not?

    I used safety glasses for road work in all the SSDT that I rode. Cheap & easy to replace if they get a bit scratched.
  5. Scottish trials at 6 day site ?

    He's getting old & his knees are shagged, was capable of top 50 when I rode round with him. We rode 3 consecutive years together & had a good laugh.
  6. constantly loosening rear brake pedal

    drill the rim of the bolt + the bikes frame & use a lock wire.
  7. Favourite Ssdt section.

    Does nobody have a favorite section or is it just the spelling of the groups that's stopping folk posting? My favorite was Coire Dubh, I liked it so much I called one of my dogs Dubh.
  8. Where are all the entries????

    Good job entries closed before the Ross noble show came out, all that sun on show & there would have been 1000
  9. I've ridden both in ssdt. If I could wind back time & do another ssdt I'd ride a gasser as my first choice, second choice & even my 753rd choice.
  10. I heard Dabster tried weighing his Italjet but it broke the scales.
  11. Land Rover 110 Station Wagon

    I'd be more concerned that the ****ing thing will get you to where you want to go & back again without breaking down.
  12. Trial GP - UK Round 2018

    There was some in the club that wanted to put on a WR, I can remember a recce being done as to what could be used around Richmond itself. There were others that thought why put all that time, effort & money into an event for a few that might not even show up. It's certainly one of the reasons that the 3 Day came into being. I've long thought that the Fremington Edge area would make a WR venue, might even have got to use this, the photo flattens it considerably.
  13. Where are all the entries????

    Funny but I was on the moor last Saturday talking to someone who's done a few miles marking Trials out. We were discussing the route taken by the ArdRock, I'd be fairly certain one of their stages was in an Ancient Monument, it was certainly in a SSSI, I doubt they've been made to jump through the hoops that locally organised Motorcycle Trials has. Not knocking what they're doing as it's bringing tourists into the Dales but Trials has been persecuted almost to the point of extinction.
  14. Team Gasgas

    Because he's injured.............
