    Anybody fancy a little challenge? I have been reading RealClassic since the beginning and thought I would adopt a scheme they have run successfully for several years now as one for us to enjoy if you should be interested.

    Triking Challenge 2016 -2017 with a prize awarded at the National Rally [this can be accepted by proxy if you have a note from your last three headmaster/mistresses and cannot make the do]. I will donate the Trophy.
    Post a picture which includes your Triking [and pilot if you wish] with a destination name included in the photo. Any place name, house name, factory/business name or road name.
    According to titnternet Bury is pretty popular so how about starting with road or place names with BURY in the title? This is usually a corruption of burh, which meant a fort/ of fortified place
    So who will be the first to post a picture of their trip out in their Triking with the name Bury in the same photo? Good hunting and highest number of different posts wins.

        Sounds like fun.

        Kind regards,
        Andy of Bury House, Bury Road, Worthingbury.

        Except Andy who has to at least travel around the block three times in reverse before taking each applicable photo and it in his case alone include a special bottle he owns in these photos.

          I submitted the last post to highlight the very real possibility of fraudulent activity e.g. Bigglesbury or Cley-next-the-Bury.

          I’m glad the electorate is not Burying its head in the Cley on this topic.

            Well, I’ll be the first.
            Took Edith for a run in the sunshine to Bury. How many can there be? Only one in Huntingdonshire.

              Since I live in the US, where I don’t think there are many “Bury’s”, not to mention the fact that I haven’t built my Triking yet, I’m feeling a little left out, so for my part in this contest I’m posting this sign, which may enable some Sherlock Holmes out there to gain an additional point.

              That’ll do nicely Eric, How long until your Triking is completed? Take a front wheel with you and join in.

                Hi, Richard and Pat – my intent wasn’t to take part myself, but to show this sign in the hope that someone “over there” could track down the location of this business, and if it’s not too far away, go there and get an extra point. The pricing has me confused , though, definitely not located over here – is that British pounds, or Euro’s or ? (When I left the country (supposedly for three years), we were still using thruppenny bits and sixpences.)

                  That’s not English, we would have used a forward stoke or long apostrophie to separate shillings and pence. Could be ozzy.

                    Well, on further research, it appears that whoever owns the Triking in Green Gulley Australia has the best chance of getting a point – however they’ll have to take a ferry as it turns out that the “Bury me Standing ” teahouse is in Hobart, Tasmania. Sorry for that red herring!

                  • #10465

                    Been out for a quick selfie to the other end of Biggleswade for Ivel Bury and back round the bypass through the new estate.

                        PESQ: Thank you. Yes I have been watching the weather and salting times too.

                          Oily your Jersey challenge if you are willing to accept is to find a street or road name with a colour in it I have found at least three.

                      • #10469

                        Tell me where you are please Oily.
                        In the UK the following web sites may unlock some destinations:
                        http://www.streetlist.co.uk/
                        Enter your town or the nearby or other town where you wish to claim a Bury. You will need to go through each letter of the alphabet on opening your chosen town as some may have an ending in Bury as my example today: Ivel Bury.
                        Two villages on this site:
                        http://www.ukwebindex.co.uk/townandvillage/England/B/
                        Good luck
                        For those overseas look out also for House names, Business names, anything containing bury in a sign. Not forgetting the derivative burgh and borough.
                        All the best

                        Hi Richard, I was struggling to find anything until you mentioned that it could be a derivative of Bury. Hope this is satisfactory.

                        Well, well Algernon,
                        I do hope a Triking is not bury ied under there or we will have to change the competition to buried treasure. I do like the effort though and shows everyone can join in regardless of their build stage.

                      • #10475

                        No , don’t panic the Triking is in the workshop being prepared for paint but I can think of some other 3 wheelers that I’ve owned that should be buried.

                          Doing a few updates to the Triking at the moment; however, as soon as the weather improves and car running I’ll be searching for a Bury, have a few places in mind.

                            I think you should reveal where the photo was taken.

                          • #10487

                            Tony. I can reveal its location as your interested.

                              There are no tomb stones at that point so it has to be Newmachar Parish Church.
                              Another Triking resides less than 50 miles from there so be warned!

                            • #10489

                              Well done that man. Actually the village of Brokenwind in Ayreshire

                            • #10490

                              Blonde moment. Aberdeenshire.

                              Tony, The file is too large . Yes I understand there is another Triking not too far away, although we have not met and I am hopefully moving soon anyway. Excellent map reading skill to find the local Church I must say. We are currently at a very small hamlet with the unlikely name of Brokenwind near Newmacher . Yes it is always cold and windy here. Looking forward to the move South.

                                I remember the Brokenwind in Ayreshire, I was riding my horse (called Ufo) through there 27 years ago, looking for the local hunt. He developed a respiratory problem so stayed there.

                                  Sun came out, so found the nearest road with Bury in the name, well it’s one picture on the board anyway.

                                        Good to see the rusty rat. You probably don’t have any problems with salt on the roads!.
                                        So, you have gone for Green as your coloured exemption. Keep em coming.

                                          Again the sun was shining, so after a main jet change on the carb, 145 to 140, I took the car out for yet another test drive and grabbed another Bury sign. The sun wasn’t in the best position for taking a picture but needs must😀

                                            50 mins driving on the A605 with weekend traffic cruising at 40mph, feels like -3c, it was so refreshing to arrive at Orlingbury. Been planning this run for ages. Such a pretty village.
                                            The return run on the B660 was shear delight, completely free of traffic.
                                            Edith can now go up onto the build frame for some winter maintenance.
                                            Any bonus for selfies?

                                                Weather has to change at sometime, but whilst it’s shining the three wheels are on the tarmac. Had a 40 mile trip this morning rand came a upon this road.

                                                  Ha ha ha ha ha! Very good, most inventive. There was me thinking this was going to be difficult too. Doh!
                                                  Time to introduce a new rule methinks but what should it be?

                                                      Thought you would like that one, its funny, I been driving past a Sainsbury’s most times I go out but never really looked at the name. I promise I won’t photograph any more of them πŸ˜‰

                                                    Triking Pilot Challenge Addendum 1: Outside of the UK
                                                    I have been wracking my brains to make it possible for the Triking Pilots outside the UK to join in. For Oily on Jersey, after I spent an hour or so looking at a complete list of all street names on the island, I decided to challenge him to find street names or businesses with a colour mentioned.
                                                    It then struck me that all the World could well have coloured street names but in the corresponding language? Also Mr White, Grun, Brown et al will have started businesses too. Please correct me if I am wrong and I will apply more little grey cells. Otherwise if you are outside the UK your challenge if you wish to accept is to find and photograph with your Threewheeler in the photo a name including a colour. If you have a chain of supermarkets name Greens I may have to have a rethink!
                                                    Good Piloting

                                                        Found this one this afternoon. Are we having a different one for February or do we carry on with Bury?

                                                            I’m doing some cycling for the next few days, also I have taken the inlet manifold off for some modifications so it’ll give the rest time to catch up.

                                                            I managed to get out today and get another couple. It’s potato planting time, so plenty of soil on the roads from the tractors made some ‘interesting’ driving!

                                                              If Oily is out and about I thought I’d better do the same. Car still running well after the manifold mods, to soon to see if the mod helps but seems ok.

If I used the flash on my phone camera to illuminate the car, the road sign reflected back and was not readable. A true enthusiast would instantly recognise the classic lines of a Triking front end ……

                                                                        • #10618

The Green Baron: On this occasion it will be forgiven that the sweat of your brow was the just cause of your impediment. However discretions of this nature should not normally be tolerated going forward especially as you have a blot on your copybook which has yet to be expunged. Whilst you remain a previous ringleader/perpetrator of a vile misdemeanor against my person I am still musing my response to the miscreants involved but have decided that in the light of fair play the inclusion of the ‘Bud’ element will forthwith no longer be required in your entries. Do not for one moment think that this is in any way a softening of the rules of engagement on your part but in view of the effort expended, drive demonstrated and willingness to conform shown in your first two entries on this occasion a little relaxation of the amendments are to be permitted. Besides the ‘Bud’ should be on display at all times in your abode in order to serve as a visual reminder that previous underhand deviant behaviours carried out by your person under the cover of subterfuge will come home to roost.
                                                                          Keep all three wheels on the ground, dirty side down.
                                                                          Kindest regards and best wishes

A hard one, but made harder by having to reduce the file size.

One per participant so everyone in the UK can get at least one. Nice to see BUD is well travelled also. I’m going to have to put prizes down to at least third place maybe even four in order to get more entries methinks? Initial first prize idea was a roll of film but I think GB will need two. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The picture was taken in Scotland during our end to end trip two years ago.

Another 40 mile round trip will put it right.

I thought it would of been ok, but alas the name Kingsbury Episcopi got blurred. I guess it’s another excuse to do the run again and pick a time when the traffic is lighter. Still go a long way to catch the green baron, but the weather is getting warmer and days longer so time to improve on my tally.

Being the owner of a green car may need to be seen as an advantage and cause the imposition of a penalty or not depending on how many others join in. Oily is on 9.
