  10. hi i have just returned to trials scorpa 280 im 57 been off the trials since the early 90s and did my first trial today and loved it getting better every section but there is one thing that i cant get right i can turn tight on off camber ok but turn tight on the flat and the front wants to push away from me tried leaning the bike over a bit more helped but was still bad running 5psi in the tyre was tacky conditions
  11. i use to race speedway and the tread is very low and large squares they are now designed not to grip i can get loads free but would be us for a trials bike
