With all Motorcycle and other sports cancelled this year because of the Pandemic - we see a lot of old memories cropping up on Social media as people try to stay somewhat sane in these troubling times - Of course our Trials Season was due to officially get going this upcoming long weekend, so I thought I would post a pic of Brandon competing at one of our Outlaw events back a few years. The camp area, where this pic was taken, is now all private with a House on it, and the owner is not “Trials friendly”

However, when one door closes, another on opens, and in fact the new camp/start area we have used for the last couple of years close to the main Hiway in Scotch Creek, is much better, and easily accessible for large trailers or Motor Homes. - - We don’t hear much of Brandon these days, as he moved back to Vancouver Island, where his family is located. ( Watching are Jake, Marcus, Ben Pospisil and Stan)

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

As forecast, the weather has cooled off, with rainĀ  expected on and off for the next few days. -remember, if you plan on riding this long weekend - make sure you have all your paperwork in order as the CO’s are always out at the popular camp areas checking.

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

Although it seems many of the Trials photo’s that are posted are all Hop & Bop type - for older readers, the Traditional style British section, often included climbs overĀ  slippery tree roots, not easy with the old Dunlop 4 ply tires- This pic posted by Terry Miles - shows John Lampkin on a tricky climb - back in the day.

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

Old style Scrambles, also included a lot of mud - it wasn’t all about big “Air time” - Here is a pic posted by Peter Campbell of a couple of riders in the muck.
