Yesterday, we talked about the fact that the majority of Trials bikes are never used in competition, but as Trail-bikes - to explore the Countryside. - Here is a great shot of a young lady doing just that on her TRS in Italy -  Just look at that neat terrain. –

I’m not sure what seat she has on the bike as this doesn’t appear to be the Xtrack model - We did sell a few Jitsie seats, which worked great on all the brands, but we haven’t been able to get any for a while.


David Knight from the Isle of Man- is racing in the Dakar this year - Most people will remember him for his Hard Enduro exploits - but like so many - David started off in Trials and I recently watched him on a VHS video with Steve Colley teaching some advanced techniques. ( We have a ton of these old VHS tapes) Knighter 101 combats Day 5 at the Dakar Rally (Full Highlights) | Episode 005 David ‘Knighter’ Knight took to the desert for Day 5 of the Dakar Rally on 5th January, and we caught the best of the action.Thanks to fellow sponsors Classi…

Jamie McGregor has posted pics of some old Trials posters from the Ontario region, back in day - I remember when I sometimes used to hand draw some these for our Alberta Trials, and of course all the results were written out by hand.  - Note that they had a Trail-bike class ! - We tried this back in the day at our Kelowna events, but it never did do anything to attract more riders to the Trials scene.


It was just posted that Ex World Champion Motor Cross legend - Joel Robert is in hospital, and in a coma. after suffering a heart attack plus Covid 19. - He is 77 years old.

And this pic is one I took of Mick at the 1992 Pre 65 Scottish with his James. He said I could take it around the parking lot if I wanted, but I declined - He did tell me it had a few Yam bits in it - ie Fork springs and reed valve etc.

Friday I went to Kelowna to deliver Opti - and decided to drive back via the Westside road as it was quite mild - I checked out  our old riding area at Bear Creek and took a pic as it is absolutely bare - no snow until you get high up on the ridge. - However that is not the case when you get to Valley of the Sun, where I stopped off to see Roy. - He is still having a lot of trouble with his eyes and will be having more Lazer  treatment next week - hopefully he will be improved by the time the snow thaws so we can go riding.
And for our French readers !!  Yes I had one of those White Yamaha caps back in the day - not sure what ever happened to it.
