This is Terry Hyde from Vancouver Island with his gorgeous BSA Gold  Star - Back in the day - BSA built this model in Trials Trim- Scrambles Trim or Road race trim - It sold all over the World and was also used for Desert racing Stateside.  I never did own one or in fact ever ride one - I did know one of our local Road racers, who got killed on one in the Isle of Man when the oil pump failed, and my brother in law Scrambled one.

Today we are expecting a shipment of TRS bikes  - so looking forward to that -  Gord Rinke will be dropping by to put his together !!  - The 2021 Beta Evo’s will not arrive until November.


Weather is cool in the early hours, but the forecast is still for +30’s until next week. - We are getting some smoke from the fires burning South of the border.
