Warmer up to -11 on Friday - so one of the horses wanted to get out of the stable!!! or another caption could perhaps read - The Evo did not see it’s shadow!!!!

In weather news today, we appear to have had another dusting of snow overnight  - but I see that Global Warming has hit Newfoundland !!!!  - I was only in St Johns once - at that time it was March and we were fogged in for 4 days !!!! -That’s another story for around the campfire.

Now this is what I call a “Traditional Trials section”  of course it’s in the UK. and at a time when Hop & bop events are getting less riders - this one got 200 entries.Image may contain: 1 person, motorcycle, outdoor and nature

We are pleased to say that we are now an official dealer for the Splatshop out of the UK  - they are likely one of the best parts suppliers for all Trials bikes and very quick - call us if you need anything whatever brand you ride.

Classic 2 Strokes

Colorful Life


This Classic pic was taken at the Sand pit section of Hawkstone Park in Shropshire England, and shows Jeff Smith leading Johny Giles -29 -Jerry Scott -27- Vic Eastwood -24-and Chris Horsfield -25 -  not sure who the Foreign rider is behind Giles, but it must have been at a Moto X of the Nations event. - After this tough part, there was a long (rough) straight, before tackling the huge and famous Hillclimb.

(This track is still being used today)

The old group pic we posted  yesterday asking if anybody could name the people having a brew after a day out at the Ponderosa - brought a few responses - Brett Clark got most of the names correct - except for Joe Adams, who is on the far right back.  - The only people who still have Trials bikes now, are Taff in the front, and Steve Richardson front left - plus of course the old guy in the chair.  Other people in the pic are > Paul Throssell, Bob Fredericksen, Luke Towers and Joe Adams.
