  1. A few questions about the way things stand at the moment regarding the EU. The wife is from the Rep of Ireland and holds an EU passport . I myself hold a British passport. Am I able to pass through the EU citizens passport border control with the wife or would I have to join the NON EU queue? Do the visa requirements for longer stays in the EU still apply to me as a British passport holder? I have Googled for answers but there is nothing concrete and it seems to be for people entering the UK not the other way. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance for any replies. Rocksteady.
  2. Anybody heard anything about the new Sherco STD Diesel? Comes in 270cc/320 cc
  3. Thanks, but no to both of your recommendations.
  4. How did you get on with your oils? Reason is I have about 20ltrs of 'Castrol power 1, 4T 10w-40' . Be a shame to buy new oil if this is ok to use. The manual for the Sherco ST 300 2020 just says to use '700 cc of 10w-40' nothing else. Thanks in advance. RockSteady
  5. I'm going to wait out for a Gasser 250/300 . Been researching TRS, Vertigo and the other Brand/models mentioned but GG keeps jumping out at me. I have seen a 2019 GG 'TXT GP' on the market at the moment for 4k but the google search of the seller doesn't fill me with confidence and has made me skittish with dealing with them. So I'm going to wait for the right bike the right price and the right dealer. Thanks to all for their input and thank you for your time. RockSteady
  6. Hope you get it back Gazza. These *******s are killing the sport/industry. Had both mine nicked 2 years back,I know how you feel ,man 😡
  7. Too be honest not really, I'm past the 'snobbery' in motor sport, its up to me really what I 'Like' to do and likewise none of my business what you get up to that makes you happy. Alot of people trail ride on trials bikes its nothing new. Been riding 45 years so i kinda know what floats my boat and my capabilities with the injuries I have and circumstances. Don't mean to be prickly if it comes across that way. Yes the Scorpa is a good choice I think and really pinging on my radar . Any known major issues with a Scorpa Compactpete? cheers.
  8. Thanks Totty, The beta 250 I had was 'ok' but was missing something , I'm not after speed these days. It's not to say I wouldn't consider a 250. It's 2022 , I'm open minded 😉, As Faussy has said the extra zip of a 300 for steep climbs will be handy and I wont be doing too much tight stuff . Not too concerned about the year either just a healthy bike for the right price i.e a good Gasser 250 2012 at say £2300.50 and i'd be interested .I just need something to get out and scratch that itch, I miss the banter etc. RockSteady
  9. Cheers faussy, I wont be entering any comp's etc I'll just mucking about on it . When I had a 250 Beta it was a bit gutless to be honest. I'm 6'2 and 'broad' so thats why im thinking a 300. I'm more used to 350-450 MX bikes. RockSteady
  10. So here I am contemplating another bike. 2 years back I had my workshop broken into and my bikes stolen. My main ride was a KTM SXF 350 and I had a li'l Beta Rev3 250 2007 for messing about on. I incidentally got the Beta back after it had been dumped (it was a bit rough to be fair) however after retrieval I left it in my van over night to have it nicked again and that was 3 weeks later after the 1st theft hmmmm something fishy going on there me thinks. Anyhoo Vowed I wouldn't ride or buy a bike again!! Well my 'vow' isn't holding water, 2 years on and I'm feeling like ive lost a limb and am starting to look at trials bikes. My experience with trials is very limited I had a TY175 back in the mid eighties and a beat up Beta years later. My MX, enduro, hare & hounds days are over and so I'm looking to just pootle about on a trials bike maybe at places like Cowm quarry, nothing serious. So I have been looking at a few bikes here's a look see into what I have in mind so any thoughts or definite stay clear of's welcome.- EDIT- I'm going to wait out for a Gasser 250/300 . Been researching TRS, Vertigo and the other Brand/models mentioned but GG keeps jumping out at me. I have seen a 2019 'TXT GP' on the market at the moment for 4k but the google search of the seller doesn't bode well and has made me nervous of the deal. So I'm going to wait for the right bike the right price and the right dealer. Thanks to all for their input. GasGas TXT pro 300 2012 Scorpa SCT 250/300 2021 Scorpa sct 300 2016 Sherco Cabestany 300 2013 X Any help or advice would greatly appreciated and thanks in advance. RockSteady
