I saw this pic on FB - it shows the Terry’s Yamaha team out of Saskatchewan  in 1980  - Interesting bit of History as this taken when I still worked for Yamaha Canada, although Terry’s Repair was not on my dealer list, as it was in the South part of the Province, while my territory covered the North. However, I got to know these guys quite well and would see them at the annual Dealer meetings.  - Interesting to see that Barry Wellings, of Valley Moto in Kelowna, was on the Team back then, and everybody was sporting long hair.!!

As we head into the Remembrance  long weekend, I see only one big Trial happening, this being the Jersey Two Day, with a lot of the Brits, including Dougie Lampkin heading across the Channel to take part.

Not sure what we will be doing - weather looks not too bad & quite warm >>>> But which bike do I ride?

This is another shot from this time last year at the Hall of Fame bash - not sure what Bob Underhill was saying to me, but obviously something funny. We shared a lot of laughs over the years.

So last night Chris Castles stopped by to pick up a new Outlaw toolbelt - and of course as Chris was on our Team in Wales, plus belongs to the local Vernon Club, we always find lots to chat about.  He likes Enduro but did quite a lot of vintage MX and still has a Tribsa, plus an old 74 TY 250 - No longer a spring chicken, we talked about the sad truth of aging and not “Bouncing ” very well anymore.
