Here is a great shot of Diego Bosis - who died way too young ( I believe he was only 41) of a Heart Attack.  The 94 Beta was a great bike.

Tuesday turned out to be a gorgeous day , it started off with another trip to the Kelowna Airport to drop off my nephew, for his flight back to New York.   Then I did a lot of chores - got rid of a bunch of motorcycle  crates & tidied up around the carport - after that it was time to pdi one of the Betas - and as it was so nice, I couldn’t resist taking the 4T  for a ride around the yard  - it was while I was doing this that Andrew Vipond stopped by, so we sat outside the shop in the sunshine and caught up on the latest news.

Of course, the main topic was about the Trial this weekend in the Shuswap - the forecast looks pretty good, so it should be a great weekend - nothing too difficult at this one, which winds up our Trials season.

Although the location is new, I have ridden there with Martin quite a few times, the sections will consist mainly of tricky cambers and turns on the hillside, with a few rocks thrown in for good measure. - It’s all about getting out for the cause, as we remember both Peter and Adrian Brown - a couple of great Trials people, who got taken by Cancer.

Camping is free and available right at Martin & Julie’s place - they have a large heated shop for  sign in, and we have heard that Ross might be bringing the big BBQ for a Saturday night feast. - all included in the $25 entry fee.

There will be classes for everybody, both days. including a Junior B for the kids.
For directions - you head for Scotch Creek, then continue on around the lake through Celista - before turning left up the hill to Bischoff Road, ( I’m sure Martin will have some signs up)

I will have the #1 plates with me, for both the WTC National, and also the Outlaw Series.

A reminder that if you need parts or accessories - be sure to email me by Thursday night.

We will have some Betas on hand for interested customers ( All at great end of the year prices)

And if you think Prices of Trials bikes are high at around 9 grand - check this out - and this is in pounds stirling !!!

This is Big John Moffat the “Trials Guru” riding in the hugely successful Leven Valley 2 Day near Kinlochlieven in Scotland.  - Bernie Schreiber also rode this one on a borrowed Triumph twin

All the sections consisted of nice natural terrain with lots of creeks.


A Scramble photo from the past - showing a big ditch that riders had to jump - quite common back in the day.
