Enviromats ?

Long time since past discussion on Enviromats - searching back was 2007. Interested to hear from other Trial clubs what they are using (maybe) - centralised rollout mat or individual rider absorbent pads and links to where sourcing them for clubs or riders. :?: :idea:

Re: Perth Expression of Interest

Hi, glad you enjoyed the event. A great day on a great property in great weather. Your questions are very common ones and no standard answer. One answer would be to buy the newest bike you can within your budget (which might be a little more than what you would prefer to spend), but as you saw on Su...

Re: 2017 Rule Changes

While understanding the need to prevent two-way traffic from a risk management perspective, the desire to minimise waiting at sections is appropriate, but perhaps writing a rule to specify certain grades may start at certain sections is overly prescriptive, whereas clubs often have this under contro...

Re: clear up a grey matter

Next time you see that observer at a trial, just make sure you nail him good and properly with a bit of whisky throttle :P :mrgreen: While written with intent to razz, it is not the best of ways to look after the observers - particularly a club member and still riding after 50years with the club. :...

Re: clear up a grey matter

The touching of the marker is certainly a rule of frustration when, unless the marker is ridden on, dislodged, broken, chipped or black tyre marks are left on the marker (as per TerrY) there is no real evidence that the marker was actually touched - other than that the word of the observer is a stat...

Re: Letting the bike go

Brigalow - you better be careful or you may find yourself traded in for a younger model with parts that respond quickly, better sprung, lighter, a bit more oomph. carburation and endurance and do not need bling to make them look good while being cheaper to run and don't mind being dumped for a young...

Re: Some early Trials videos.

Note that Mike Thorpe in the Byford Trial video is still competing in Trials and can still hold his own in his class against many. Wonderful smooth riding style - an inspiration - and contributes much to our club in WA and to Trials. Currently aboard a GasGas 125 having stepped down from the larger ...

Re: Transporting your bike?

I use the Tyre Down http://www.kyaracing.com.au/off_road_tyre_down.htm for off road bikes on my easytrailer 4'x3.5' - 830TA http://www.easytrailer.com.au/multifunction_trailers.html fitted with the single motorbike channel. The "tyredowns" work great - stabilise the rear wheel. I then use ...
