Hello - New to Trials

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - guess I'll be asking a lot of questions soon enough.

57 & just starting out in trials - borrowed view to buy a black engine yellow Suzuki Beamish. 

North Norfolk UK.

Joined Dabbers trials - scored over 100 in my 1st trials....must have been the bike..  ?

Race in over 35's MX - cant go fast enough...now trials cant go slow enough....doh

Welcome to trials mate! No harm in starting at 57, I met a fella the other week about to ride his first trial at 71!

Plenty of slow figure of 8 turns in the garden will rid you of those motorcoss habits! ?

Best of luck!

Hi there,

Can I ask why you decided to buy a Beamish Suzuki and not a modern bike like a Beta Evo? 

Hope you enjoy trials..... ☺️

Hi Scatman - sure..

1 There is a twinshock club near to me. (Dabbers) - so convenient.

2 Some of my friends are in this club - so social.

3 We have a duty to keep old bikes alive wherever poss - so moral :)

4 I like repairing & re-building as much as riding (I race a 1990 YZ250 mx). So hobby.

5 I like the look & style of twinshocks - so visual.

6 At clubman level its all about the riders capacity not so much the bike - not like I'm going to do extreme trials.....yet. So skill level.

7 Oh...& my mate has kind of given - lent the Beamish to me to use / view to buy - no rush - so cheap...

 

In my dream garage I would have a monoshock - plus a pre 65 - prob a rigid too... also a cafe racer - bobber - dirt track - speedway in fact a working riding  museum would be nice....(I have a Husaberg 501 enduro / YZ250 super evo / RM125mx)

57  whippersnapper?You’ll like the Beamish more when you get to know it better. Practice makes perfect.
