THE TALMAG TRIAL 2020
Once again our motley group of Club members rose early on Sunday to get to Aldershot by 8.30am to sign on as observers and with the weather promising to be wet in the afternoon we were all well prepared. As always the paddock was filled with some of the most exotic trials machines, beautifully prepared and whilst there were many 'original' machines there were a similar number of 'specials' ranging from Ducati, MV Augusta, Douglas, Panther etc the list goes on. After signing on we trooped off with our bag of sweets, provided by the organisers, to the food wagon for our egg and bacon roll that too courtesy of the organising Club. Successfully managing to consume said roll without getting egg all down the font of your kit we continued off to trek, and it is a far walk, to our section which for the past few year has been Hungry Hill. This year due to the paucity of observers two took the Hill whist the other two moved on to another section for an enjoyable day of trials action. The forecasters got it spot on regarding the incoming rain but suitably clad in waterproof gear we didn't let that spoil our fun
How about a super tricked up Triumph, it's owner hoping to do the Scottish. Or perhaps you might prefer an Indian Scout?
Going down............... Or going up, both take a great deal of courage.
Lets try it with three wheels it looks OK. You can even take the good wife, just get her a matching helmet Maybe its not quite that easy after all!
