Just got a call from Martin up in the Shuswap - The Brown Memorial Trial will be a “Go” at his place on October 5-6  more details later - but I can tell you that having ridden in this area a number of times - This should be “Great” ( Not sure if they will have a loop up Crowfoot Mountain)

Sammy Miller was over in the Isle of Man this past week attending the Classic TT races - and took two of his wonderful road racers from the 1950’s - This was the era of fully streamlined machines - which were later banned as they were thought to be dangerous in cross winds. I was lucky enough to see Sammy race one of these in the 1957 TT on the shorter Clypse course. - You can see Sam’s 500 Ariel Trials bike in the background.

Here is a pic by a Mr Curtis - of some old “Scramblers”  - You  had to be strong to handle one of these “Heavy-weights”

Today, we will load up the Outlaw van ready to go to Ymir tomorrow - Any parts or accessory orders need to phoned to me not later than 3 pm. We try to have everything possible, but we can only fit in so much.

We do have the items for Ross, Ty and Lee Usher  & Taff !! plus grips for Pete. Opti for Stan etc etc

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have  just heard that the Kootenay Ferry workers have called a Strike for this weekend ( Bloody marvelous!) So If you are planning on going to Ymir using one of these, you need to adjust your route.
