Classic Introduction to trials event

Post by besaboy » Sat Mar 16, 2013 10:09 am

Gents,
Anybody who want to try trials needed to get down to the Mendip hills, just South of Bristol next Sunday 24th March. The Somerton Classic MCC are running a couple of trials for beginners, returners and the not very good !! these are at Priddy up on the Mendips.
I am going to drag out the C15, as I fit the ' not very good' group and my 13 year old is going to ride his first ever trial on....yes a BSA Bantam. You enter on the day, so the Ian needs to get out on the IHO and not far from Bossy and Richard can get back on that nice trials bike. It may be a bit testing for the BEAST, so best you leave that behind Gerry.... <216
More info on the club website - Somerton Classic Motorcycle Club.
Hope top see some of you there, always time for a pint of cider at the end of each lap and three very good pubs within the mile :grin: ( may have let the cat out of the bag, why my scores get better through the day ;-) )

Ah Somerton, the birth place of the moderator. Unfortunately I'm working that weekend, got a S*zuki Beamish that could be ready for next year..There are some great pubs and scary caves in the mendips....

Thanks for the info , but I have already decided I will not be retrying trials and the bike will be sold when someone offers near to the price until then it will stay in the shed, best of luck to you and your lad.
As for the S*zuki Beamish that could be ready for next year..seeing would be believing, a bit like the bike that Mark is supposed to be doing according to Gerry, how many years has that been? :smile:

Possible but unlikely, I think I am going to Lincolnshire to collect a T100C. However if I find time to do that before the weekend and change the gearing on the B44mx and there are still entries available, you may just get the chance to have a good old laugh at my expense.
As it happens I too have an RL250 which is all ready to go, but that would be cheating and anyway I would still be crap.

What is it about the S*zuki ?
Richard, these are classic trials for classic bikes run and set out by classic riders. Very different from most events set out with a t/s or P65 route. It will be fun.

Riding trials used to be one of my most favorite things until Technology, not always our friend, made the bikes so good that the trials sections had to be made death defying to challenge them. Now with my inner ear problem, I shouldn't be on a bike at all truth be told and even vintage trials are out of the question. :(

Well done you two, I'd watch out though Richard. You might end up being his mechanic and sponsor :laugh

Been off the forum for a couple of weeks - trying to fit in prepping the IHO for the Lands End Trial in amongst the usual 'life' stuff. Shame I missed this one Richard. Bloody cold in my garage though ...
