Friday April 5th 2019

Thursday was Momma Bear’s birthday, and while we had the big surprise party last Saturday - yesterday was also a big day, crowned with dinner at the Vernon Lodge, with Helen & Carly. - Now it’s back to normal !!!.

Looks like a shower or two for the weekend, but that’s OK - not sure if we will get any riding in, as things are pretty busy around here with bike & parts sales.


We have heard from Sean Bird, who tells us that he will be looking after the Team Squid/Outlaw Trial on April 28th, taking it over from Steve Day, who has been putting it on for the past few years. A big thanks to Steve for all his efforts - it’s a lot of work to host a good Trials event and get it “right” - Outlaw have sponsored this Trial for the past few years, as it’s round #1 of the Outlaw Series. - We hope to see you there.

But before that we have the Easter weekend - the plan is to be at Summerland for a “Fun” time with anybody who decides to come out - some people will likely camp out - a lot will depend on the weather, but we encourage any new¬† folk to Trials to join us as it’s a great way to make new friends. The area has stuff for all abilities - just contact me if you need more info:

My copy of the Latest Trial Mag: UK arrived yesterday, and once again Editor John Hulme has excelled, with a good variety of stories and photographs, covering both vintage and modern, with Industry news, and also unfortunately, a couple of Obituaries.


Our computer was “Down” most of yesterday, likely as a result of the previous night’s electrical outage - apparently this was caused by a car accident which took out a power pole.


Here is an oldie from 1973 - it shows Team Kawasaki riders Richie Sunter and Don Smith waiting to ride a section -( no helmets back then.) - Like all the other Japanese Factories - Kawasaki jumped into what they thought would be a big new market, but of course this never happened, and their sales with a less than perfect bike, were dismal.
