Mick gave a trials school at the same location 2-3 yrs later and got to visit with him and wife Jill. Didn't take the school (no bike) but watched for a while. He and Dick Mann started a vintage trials competition in Europe and it seemed to take off for a while. I restored a '70 OSSA MAR and plonked around the woods for a while a few yrs ago (fun) !!
OK, going lurking now. Sorry to interupt!!
You ought to get one, come join us. it is really fun, once you get some basics down pat.
