This is a Fantic shot for Walter - the 240 was the bike to have back in the days just prior to Yamaha taking over the market with their revolutionary Mono-Shock TY 250 in 1984.

So here we are  heading into the 2020 May Long weekend - usually THE weekend for Trials enthusiasts in BC, when everybody would gather for the “Outlaw Trial”. - I can still remember that very first event back in 1986, held at East Kelowna.  - We had planned it as a “One off” - with old vintage bikes on the Saturday, followed by modern bikes on the Sunday. - Hard to believe at how successful this annual Trial became, and while the vintage part has faltered a little in the past couple of years, the Modern event, has always attracted a big entry from all over Western Canada.

Just like Scottish Six Day enthusiasts, I’m sure our regular visitors  will be feeling a bit lost for something to do this weekend - the Corona-Virus Pandemic has pretty much shut the World down, for any sporting activity.

Of course being out in the woods either Hiking or biking - is likely the best place to be, as long as people remember to keep their distance  - We hope that everybody follows the rules and enjoys what ever they decide to do. -

Here is a nice shot by Neil Sturgeon of the Loch at Fort William where the weather has been unusually warm and dry this past week - almost like the weather gods knew the Trial was cancelled !!

At Outlaw, we have still been open for business - although by appointment only, and have still been able to help customers with our mail order of parts and accessories.


Today we will be going out on a Trials Training session with a young lady from Revvy - Emily is a writer for the Motorcycle Mojo Magazine, so watch for a report on how our day goes.

The weather is a tad unsettled, but hopefully the rain will stay away - Sunday looks to be the “Wet” day of the weekend.
