Scot­tish Six Days Trial

Trial Magazine - - NEWS -

Yes, it’s al­most that time of year again for the priv­i­leged riders who have had their en­try ac­cepted to start their prepa­ra­tion for the great­est test of man and ma­chine, the Scot­tish Six Days Trial. As usual it will be based around the town of Fort Wil­liam in the High­lands, with the start and fin­ish and the se­cure area for the machines in the West End car park.

All the ma­jor im­porters will be in at­ten­dance to sup­port the riders but it’s very im­por­tant, in or­der to main­tain the best ser­vice from the free fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided, that you regis­ter with them. The im­porters’ con­tact de­tails can be found in the mag­a­zine, so ei­ther call or mail them so that you can have your ac­count set up with them be­fore you ar­rive at the event and get the best ser­vice and sup­ply of parts or­gan­ised. You must re­mem­ber that they need the de­tails of your ma­chine so that they can en­sure a sup­ply of parts is avail­able for that par­tic­u­lar model. Prepa­ra­tion for the six days of rid­ing is key to you fin­ish­ing the event so it’s very im­por­tant to be or­gan­ised.

Be­fore you ar­rive, please note that the free ser­vice does not in­clude pre­par­ing your ma­chine for the event at the start of the trial. You should ar­rive in Scot­land with your ma­chine in very good me­chan­i­cal con­di­tion and not, as has been seen in the past with some, hav­ing no prepa­ra­tion car­ried out at all, not even washed!

Con­tact the im­porter for the ma­chine you are rid­ing to find out if there is any ex­tra in­for­ma­tion you need to know about your model to en­sure you fin­ish the event; once again the de­tails can be found in the mag­a­zine.

Many of our im­porters and ad­ver­tis­ers in the mag­a­zine have rid­den the event, so maybe it’s a good time to speak with them or to visit your lo­cal dealer for any ex­tra in­for­ma­tion they can give you. It’s sur­pris­ing what you can learn from some­one who has rid­den the event with re­gards to what rid­ing kit to wear and what to carry, and as we have stated your lo­cal dealer is prob­a­bly the best place to visit.

On a fi­nal note, just re­mem­ber the event is not just about the ma­chine fin­ish­ing the event, the rider has to also! Trial Mag­a­zine would like to wish ev­ery­one in­volved in the event a safe week of tri­als; see you at the event.
