Yesterday was “Wheelie Wednesday” - so thought I would post this old shot from the 70’s, when even I did a bit of this.

Wow! Did Kelowna ever get a big dump of snow Tuesday night !! - We only got a couple of cm. in Vernon, which is unusual as we normally get more than they do down South.  ( But that’s OK we ain’t complaining)


I spent some time Wednesday putting captions to some of the Photos that I had posted on FB in the last little while, not realizing  that when I clicked these on - they were posted again !! - Ah well ! some folk got to see some of them twice.

This is one that goes back to the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame and my five minute speech up on the Podium ! - the pic was one of a series taken by Roger Boothroyd of Victoria.  - The reason I’m showing it today, is that in my speech, I mentioned the 1983 ISDE in Wales, at which the Canadian Team did so well.

After the event, a lot of the Teams exchange gifts, jackets, caps, you name it - it’s a tradition. - Well !- at the Motel where we stayed, they threw us a big party - decorated the bar especially to celebrate the great achievement  by the lads, and the local Yamaha dealer wanted my Canadian Yamaha tie as a souvenir - in return he gave me his Welsh one - and that is what I’m wearing in this Photo. - And now you know the rest of the Story.


Here’s a flashback to out WTC National at Revelstoke last year - it shows young Bodi Watts of Wainwright AB on one of the tricky quarry sections - Bodi was riding the Outlaw Evo 200, and did quite well.

Here is a good shot of Mick in New Zealand back in the early 70’s - He certainly did a great job promoting Trials around the World. - And is still riding.
