    Default Beta Rev 3

    I've just pulled the trigger on this fella, a Beta Rev 3 250cc trials bike. I've been wanting to do trials for a long time, but didn't really consider it viable, given the need for a transporter. However, I read a Japanese post recently in which a guy claimed to be transporting his GasGas 250 in an N-Box+. So, I contacted an old mate with a trials bike to see if I could try to get his bike into my N-Box+, and he told me he wanted to sell it. I tried it last night, and it fits snugly into the car. So, we've agreed sale. I'll be picking it up over the next couple of weeks after he gets a mechanic to give it the once over. In an N-Box!!

    Very cool! Can you plate (register) it?

    Nice bike. Yes, plating it would be advantageous so you can connect trails when desired.

    It's plated already. It's just not attached. This bike has seen a lot of Sanage, so plates are needed given the odd appearance by the police. Although, I'll be sticking to the trials park at Myoroku Temple in Toyota until I've got the hang of it.

    Looks like a nice bike for an Iron Butt
    More seriously, must be a lot of fun!

    Congrats!

    How easy/difficult was it to load/unload? One man job?

    Are you selling the Serow?

    Loading will take some getting used to, but I'll get a method bedded down very soon. And yes, I'll be putting the Serow up for sale. You interested?

    Nah I'm downsizing the stable myself. Good luck with the upcoming sale.
