Friday November 13th 2020 ( Unlucky for some)

There are still a lot of people out there that don’t know that the Beta Factory has been around for a very long time - since the early 1900’s first in bicycles then Motorcycles - still family owned. - They have always built a variety of models ( not just Trials bikes) and this is an early example of their 125cc Moto Cross machine.

Many of our readers will remember seeing my pics of Motorcycle Mojo Magazine gal Emily Roberts, out riding Trials with me - but she can also handle big bikes as well, doing a test of the 1200cc BMW this summer - at only 5ft 4inches - Emily certainly isn’t a big lady, but what she lacks in size, she makes up for in the skills department. check this out >> and get a subscription to Motorcycle Mojo Magazine - it’s Canadian and needs our support.

Here is a rare photo from “D DAY” 1944 - with Dispatch riders arriving on the Beach at Normandy.

This is Tilly Shilling - A truly remarkable  lady who not only built this bike, and lapped the famous Brooklands Speedway  at 105 mph - but also designed the special anti-stall device that was fitted to the Spitfire.

A light dusting of snow last night - with more expected today - not my favorite time of the year.


Jordi Tarres has posted some great pics of the new 2021 TRS models - most available with the optional e start - He is certainly not resting on his laurels with updates every year. - As most of our readers know - I took advantage of pre-ordering  a “Gold” Special Edition which was an early shipment - this has the estart and is absolutely fantastic - But I would strongly suggest that anybody planning on buying either a Beta or TRS for 2021 - Get your order in NOW - with this Pandemic, we never know when European Factories might be shut down. ( Note Beta still have a few 2020 Evos left in the warehouse but these are going fast)

Here is a great shot of the new  TRS Engine - and a video>

Christmas is just around the corner and we have a good stock of Wulf riding gear - Helmets-Boots- Gloves etc - plus of course our unbeatable Outlaw Toolbelts and Enduro fender bags. - Why not give us a call as we have been told that all mail & courier deliveries are likely to be slow this year due to the Pandemic.
