As most people know- I have long been a Mountain riding enthusiast on a Trials bike, so was impressed to see this pic of a 1973Bultaco up in the area of Mount Everest - Not sure of any other details. except that it was a Spanish group who made the trip.  ( Loved my Sherpa T’s - think I had a total of 5 before joining Yamaha Canada)

Trials a Andorra 1968-83


The heavy snow has made it tough for BC travelers this week - as folk can see by the pics I’ve posted we have had 20cm in the past couple of days and other areas even more.

Check out this pic just sent in by Julie of the huge dump they have had - Martin has been busy for the past week working with the Bobcat and excavator to clear a path around the house - hard to believe we had a Trial there only a couple of months ago, - Julie says they had no power for a week, but managed OK with a wood stove and a generator.

In addition – The Vernon Club are proposing a fun Trial on June 28th in Conjunction with their Kids Poker run – which will go the day before. – We will supply more details on this as we learn more.
Yesterday I spent most of the time counting Inventory  - a yearly job that I never relish, even though we run a very small business. - It’s always quite funny when I find items in stock that I’ve either re-ordered or wonder why I have them in the first place !!  I often think back to Walt’s shop and have no idea how any of his records were accurate.
