    Whats gone wrong with Trials.

    Visited at Highland Classic, this year............WOW, blown away by the sections, - and surrounding area! ( followed the course, just getting to the sections was like walking one long section;) Certainly one my 'would love to do list......but coming from the chalk and clay based south, rock is summat not ridden, - yet.

    Some good, interesting idea's to ponder;

    Whats gone wrong with Trials.

    Certainly think you could well be right..............also, and this idea has already been raised elsewhere is, as sections are getting much more technical than previously, (where in section one was riding against natural features) certainly anyone with a little interest looking at what trials is about today, may well be put off by the acrobatics needed to ride modern sections. Quite a few area's have ground that for a long time had been used to lay out challenging - but safe sections, now not being used as its not technical (hard) enough for the types of machinery being ridden, be it twin shock/per 65 etc. Interesting topic,

    Montesa Cota 123

    Contact the fuel company's in your area and ask specifically which of their garages stock non ethanol super uleaded fuel. (reason for using your area is some companys who do ethanol free super unleaded, do not supply it to ALL their forecourts.) Aspen is one way to go, (and I've also got a 123 cota which I'll be running it on, when its up and ready), Shell have always refused to answer direct questions re ethanol in their fuel, so draw your own conclusions from that.

    Show Us Your Montesa!

    I've got Aspen mixture for the 123 as its the non metal tanked version.............not back together at the mo, so cannot comment on running issues. I do know there are a couple of company's who produce non ethanol fuel, in their Super Unleaded range. Murco and Texaco (although NOT in all area's of the uk) I'll be firing off emails to all the company's local to me to get their answers at a later date. (as you say Aspen is expensive.......but I am led to believe it can be left in tank as it doesn't go 'off')

    Which one would you buy?

    By my saying Major factor, here I was referring more to the swing to electric propelled vehicles; Already citys are looking to ban (or cut right down at the very least0 fossil fuelled vehicles (ok diesel at the mo), and certainly the government - at one time, (maybe still for all I know) were looking at introducing 'sweetners' to those who took up using electric vehicles. fast recharging points,.....I've heard of some that will charge, fron zero to full in half an hour (ok no good if your out for the day in the boonies..........) - but like most things once the technology is gained, things get quicker, (and smaller) Having used an electric pushbike, I was amazed how close I could get to wildlife (and ok its not trials related, I know........but silence, sometimes, is golden.

    Which one would you buy?

    I think there is a genuine swelling of interest in Electric power, be it Trials (Yamaha wouldn't be pushing its development if it wasn't going to become a major factor in a few years), to all roads machines At present, biggest hurdle is battery capacity, and the real time lack of fast recharging points...............but these will come.

    Which one would you buy?

    Interesting topic...gonna throw a spanner here, though................, there is really NO current trials iron I'd want, (I'm not good enough to ride them)...........or the sections as they are today,..........BUT there are a few 'older' models I'd like to ride (and ok, fall off as well ) RTL Honda Gollner KT250 Kawasaki (the re-framed yellow version) Not including Montesa's, as I'm happy with those I have.......
