Christmas is coming and at Outlaw we have a ton of quality items for under the tree - everything from toolbelts ( see pic) to Wulf clothing - boots - helmets - gloves. - plus stuff like low pressure tire gauges - tether switches - fork guards etc. call us for pricing - but don’t leave it too late !!

Pictured below, is the “Stan-bag”  the brainchild of Stan Bakgaard - made especially for Trials riders, who don’t want to carry many tools, but it features a Gas bottle and a drink holder - plus straps to hold on an air pump or rain jacket.

Arnau Farre will be making a return to Trials in 2020 sponsored by Jordi on TRS - He was the 2017 Champ in T2, before being sidelined through injury.

This one just popped up on FB - Not sure of the year or place - but definitely  Alberta somewhere, with myself and Harold giving the riders meeting. ( Look at a young Ben!!) - That must have been when Taff was working for the Honda Dealer.

It was Royal Enfield, who first introduced the Swing-arm rear suspension in the early 1950’s -  their top Trials rider at that time was the great Johnny Brittain. - Looks like this pic might have been taken at the Scottish.

I found this old shot from 1991 - me on the TY 250 at Bear Creek - not sure who took the pic. - but think I was out with Harry, Kevin & Barry that day. ( Just worked out that I would have been a young 54 years old then !!)

Weather yesterday, was brilliant - Sunny clear sky and while a bit cool - It would have been a great day for a ride - Unfortunately, I had to zip down to Kelowna to pick up an order of tool belts - then later a Doctors appointment.  So even though today doesn’t look that great & quite cold - I plan on heading over to see Roy for a play in his backyard practice area ( Will take the Beta 4T)  - might post some video later.

===================================>

This old black & white from 1971 just showed up again - The Blackfoot Motorcycle Trials Team - Murray Nutt, Wayne Adderson and myself. - I had broken my leg earlier that year, so still looking quite thin - Although I was very thankful for the sponsored ride on the Montesa, I never really got along with it, and was back on Bultaco the following year. ( although we did win the Team award in the National that year) - Bruce Cameron owned Blackfoot  then - super nice guy, who died way too early of a Heart Attack.
