  1. Hi Nick

    Thanks for your reply over the years I have been a member of both trials clubs Bleak hall was a good site .im looking for somewhere a bit further afield and a bit more remote. Do have any other ideas 



  2. Guess the support is there from the manufacturers a bit in the 125 class as there is a market there for 125's with all the junior classes around Europe / the world. I guess once the riders go to Trial2 the manufacturers have less to gain by continuing to support the rider. Massive shame as Kieran is a really good guy and great rider with potential.
  3. Hopefully problems gone now. Just need to make them again now ?

    Dont worry, wont happen anyway just a green 'box ticking' exercise Car manufacturers have spent billions on hybrid tech, not a hope they'll walk way from combustion engines. Governments will blame lack of infrastructure - charging points, hydrogen stations etc but reality is manufacturers and their £££ talks
  5. If using ATF I'd say much safer using Dexron III as it is higher grade. Never seen anyone using Dexron II

    GG UK riders

    So is this the beginning of the end for GG UK as we know (have known) it? with Price signing for Vertigo, Thorpe seemingly moving on, Haslam riding Montesa it’s doesn’t look like GG UK will remain for long and it will amalgamate in to KTM UK (makes sense, why would KTM need a UK GG importer?) but seems a shame that any supported riders are having to look elsewhere. is there anything remotely official from GG UK or KTM about what’s happening?
  8. As far as I’d heard Sherco UK (MRS) we’re only bringing in the Factory models and not the standard Sherco for 2020
  9. Yep. Think (for UK at least) the ONE R is the entry bike for 2020
  10. Too simple to have same rules ?
  11. Ha.... so organisers need to let out 1 load of sections with time limit in mind and the rest with no stop in mind... even when the ACU do the right thing they it so wrong ??‍♂️
  12. So has there been definitive rules for BTC? stop and hop allowed with 1 minute time limit. Is this all 3 routes in BTC? And is this likely to filter down to the more traditional trials - S3 and nationals etc? assume clubs at their own free will to decide what they want to implement within club trials.
  13. The change being discussed is for top level British Championship. these boys and girls have no concerns with stop, hop, flick etc. New rules sounds good. Stop allowed but only 1 minute allowed per section. So the emphasis will be on getting out the section. If a rider spends 30’seconds lining up a step etc it’s up to them but they’ll have less time for rest of section as for riders practicing their skills, the top guys practice a lot so won’t be an issue. who knows what rules will filter down to clubs - hopefully the same.
  14. Thats the big issue - Only Beta do any 80cc bikes - so demand often outstrips demand, The good news is that they are basically the same bike since about 2007 with only new stickers lobbed on each year so even an older and cheaper bike would / could do. At 11 years old (and smaller) he's potentially ok on an Oset 24 for a year or so . The nice thing with the Oset is they are more plentiful, much much lighter and easier to start trials on and use for a year or so. As mentioned above the move to petrol bike will be one of the hardest and most painful experiences of your life ? - I'd also say the '3 months' remark is generous and allow for a good 6 months plus of learning before they're properly comfortable with weight, gears, clutch etc. They not only have to deal with a ludicrously heavy bike (see above about no development on the Beta 80 for 12+ years) but also a clutch and a gearbox. Some people decide to stick out an electric bike as long as possible, some decide to go petrol and take the associated pain as early as possible. May be food for thought or I may have just made your headache worse
