Here is an unusual pic for me to post on a Motorcycle  blog - but there is a reason - the Photo is by Pete Arnell from Cochrane Alberta, and at one time a very good Trials rider.  - I haven’t seen Pete for decades and did not know that he was such a great ( and I mean great) Photographer.  The pics he has recently posted on FB of Wildlife are spectacular.
No photo description available.

While I was out today - working on a practice section we plan on calling “Hully Gully”  over on the Westside - Stan called, with the correct answer to my latest quiz - The guy in the pic is Ralf Venables- a very well known contributor to the motorcycle press back in the day.
Although he wasn’t the first ( one correct answer came from the UK) - I’m sorry I missed his call - Obviously we are all sad missing getting together for our Trials events and Camp outs - but it’s nice that many people remember to phone and Babsy really enjoys talking to the gang, as has been pretty much house-bound for over two months.
While many riders have stayed home - others have been out clearing trails - staying “Distant”  - This is what I’ve been doing - just getting out the odd time, for some exercise and fresh air - as the years go by, I find I tend to by-pass a lot of big “Ups” - where a malfunction could be a disaster at my age - especially during this time. -

However - there is one climb over at “Roy’s place - that I like to zip up, and today on the Evo 200 in 3rd -  was just what I needed to give me a bit of spark !! - in fact I just had to go around and do it again.
=======================================>
We have Beta Boss Steve Howland coming into town today and he wants me to take him out on the Trials bike - I will let you know  if and how this turns out.
