Last day of the month, before we roar into May with the Scottish Six Days starting next week, then our famous Outlaw Trial at Scotch Creek on May 19/20th.

Getting early season practice, is always a bonus before the first event, and the West Coast riders tend to have the edge here, but this is a shot of Richard Ouelett (Scorpa) and Gord Rinke (TRS) on some neat looking stuff in Alberta. ( pic by Doug Doel)

Had to post this pic of Eddie Crooks on his Manx Norton¬† - These were the bikes to beat, back in the early 1950’s, before the entrance of the four cylinder MV Augusta, and Gilera. - nothing quite like the sound of a Manx making the turn at the Gooseneck in the Isle of Man - the megaphone exhausts were music to the ears. Note the open primary chain.

I chatted to Jimmy Corkle on the phone yesterday for quite a while, he is back home after his operation and sounds good, although he needs to take things very easy for about a month.

For the second week in a row, Pat Smage ( Sherco)  doubled up to take the Expert win both days, in Colorado

He appears to be the class of the field in the US National Series, and excels on big dry rocks - here is a Shan Moore pic of him at the previous round in New Mexico.

And here is a James Dabill (Beta) winning the Ste David’s Trial in South Wales at the weekend - thanks to Heath Brindley for the great pic.

It was a rainy start to the day on Sunday - so I just did some chores, cut up a bunch of bike crates and hauled it all to the dump. - Then just kicked back for the rest of the day. - This week is shaping up to be fairly busy, with more bikes coming in and customers to look after, plus we will be getting a visit from Jamie McGregor who is out from Ontario.
