Advice for securing bikes - chain them to the floor or a wall in a garage or secure shed. Remove wheel spindles so the bike can't be pushed away. If in an outside shed use a baby monitor so you can hear if anyone is in the shed. Alarm your bike store. Keep helmets separate so they cant use them to ride away.
Avoid having bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at your house.
When selling a bike - before you show the buyer the bike photograph them and their vehicle. Take a photo of their driving licence.
Remove a wheel spindle and disconnect the spark plug before they arrive. Do not give any documents until cheque or cash is paid into bank. If the buyer objects - say goodbye.
If possible ask your local police station if you could sell the bike at their premises - crooks will not want to be at a Police Station.
At events - Safety advice. Check your vehicles for trackers before you leave. Watch out for any vehicles following you. At events photograph any suspicious people or vehicle taking an interest in bikes.
NOTE ON HELMETS - IMPORTANT. Check before you turn up at an event
Helmets will only pass scrutinering for racing if they carry an ACU gold or silver sticker attached. All helmets sold as suitable for "ACU competition" will have the stamp affixed by the dealer.
If your helmet does not have an ACU sticker attached contact the dealer to ask for the sticker. Helmets can be assessed by the ACU or SACU by posting in the helmet and paying a £15 certification fee - which includes return postage.
Helmet or body mounted cameras are prohibited. Cameras may be mounted on the motorcycle.
Check the regs in the 2019 ACU Handbook - https://www.acu.org.uk/ridersmembers/acu-handbook.aspx
If you want more riding - the North East of England Championship rounds are well worth doing . Enduro and XC. See http://www.enduro-neec.org.uk/ for more info and a calendar.
If you find the sport is interesting and would like to ride or assist then contact a club as we are keen to attract new members to the sport. There is an over 40's class and a Ladies award, so everyone can get out and ride.
Enduros in Scotland are organised from March to October with events from the Borders to Inverness . All classes of rider are catered for with Expert, Clubman, Sportsman and over 40's classes.
To compete you need to be a member of a club and either hold an SACU or ACU licence - or can get a one day licence at the event. You need to send in an entry form prior to the event, entries are available on this site or from the host club. Events are published in Trials & Motocross News. If you check the Calendar on this site the dates and venues of events and training days are listed. The Contacts page has the addresses of the organising clubs.
The aim of Enduro Competition is to complete the course via several checkpoints in a set time. You may not check in early or late without penalty. Generally the top riders go "clean" and the event is then decided on the result of special test times. There will be one or two tests per lap of a moto-X or cross-country type. For the slower riders there is up to a one hour allowance over the set time for the course to achieve a finish.
Enduros are exactly what they say and even to finish is an achievement. So go on - try an event and get out on the hills. There is no other sport like it.
