Thursday September 5th 2019 ( My 82nd Birthday)

Both Stevie Baker and myself share the same birthday - although many years apart - Now we share something else as we are both in the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame.  - Who would have thought?
'September 5th is the Birthday of Steve Baker and Dave Rhodes - We both were both employed by Yamaha Motor Canada in the 1970's - Steve was a World Champion Road Racer - A nicer guy you never met. - This pic was at the MCC Motorcycle Hall of Fame awards banquet a couple of years ago.. We should have had Bob Work in this shot.  - At age 80, I still count the ten years I spent with Yamaha some of the my life.'


Check out the post above  - It’s me getting a bit of practice on my birthday !!!!!(lol) - Make that “In my Dreams”

This very nice Hodaka was at Ymir and won the Vintage B class with Todd Stanley from the US.

Looking at the Entry forms for the Ymir event - I noticed that once again, many riders had not filled these in correctly - leaving out such vital information as where they live !! - Yes they all put their address - but not the Town. - None of our Scorekeepers are mind readers, and although I know most of the riders,  it is not always the case, so if you want to be contacted regarding any matters  pertaining to WTC Trials, please  pay attention to this at future events.


I have now double checked the results for the 4 event Outlaw Series to see who gets their  name on the Plaque for the 2019 Year.
They are as follows

Expert - Steve Day  - Advanced  - Brian McNeal -  Senior Advanced - Ross Rathbone  - Intermediate  - Russ Nelson  - Junior - Andrew Vipond -  Sportsman - Taff Parfitt. -

Anyone curious about where they finished after all the points were added can shoot me an email.


And that’s a wrap for this my 82nd birthday - Think I will go for a ride with Roy on the West side !!!
