The 2019 TDN ( Trial des Nations)  goes this weekend on the Island of Ibiza  -  No Canadian Teams entered.

Naturally everybody expects the Spanish to dominate as usual.


Another flash back to the 1979 FIM World Trial at Waiparous Creek near Calgary Alberta - Martin Lampkin grabbed 2nd on the day.

We have just ordered some of the new Wulf Trials boots which should arrive before the Trial next week - They list a number of improvements, including thicker leather and a better design around the ankle area.  We expect our pricing to remain the same at $295.00

A wet day today in the Valley - but at least no snow ( unlike Alberta)  - My missing Beta bikes showed up yesterday  - An Evo 300 SS and an Evo 300 4T - big price saving on both these and other Beta’s in Stock - call quick if you are in the market.


My nephew arrived last night from New York, to attend our daughter’s wedding tomorrow - it’s been many years since we have seen Rob, who has a Scooter business in the big apple. - Naturally the first stop was out back to check out the bikes.  Rob has a couple of old neat vintage street bikes, a Laverda - which ironically, he bought from a guy who lives in Kamloops and who met me years ago when we had a show going at the OKeefe ranch in Vernon. As they say, it’s a small World.


Big news plastered  on FB today- is the deal between KTM and Gas Gas - it will be interesting to see how that pans out. - ( Few people know that KTM were in receivership themselves many years ago and got bailed out by Dietcher Bank -  Later they also tried to buy Beta - but the Family owned Beta business turned them down)

Watch for some big news from Beta Canada today ( Something we have been keeping under our hat for a while)
