The pic below I took over ten years ago at Bear Ridge on Boxing Day - we had a visit from an Alberta customer  so Barry & myself took him out for a ride - as you can see, some snow, but quite mild. - Barry is looking up at an Eagle who kept circling above watching us.

We spent  a quiet Boxing day, but as it had warmed up to +2 - I did go out to the shop and fired up the TRS demo we have left over - Although it had sat in the unheated shop for about a month in temperatures that dipped down to -32 - after a couple of kicks to loosen everything up ( including my stiff old bones) it only took a touch on the starter button to bring it to life.  - pretty amazing.


I wonder how many motorcycle enthusiasts watched The Great Escape - over the holiday - always a favorite.

Perhaps the best “invention for Trials bikes - The TRS magic button !! - This proved to be  very popular. - especially with the older brigade or people with leg/knee issues.

Roger Boothroyd took this pic a couple of years ago of John “Boomer” Gronow on his 90th birthday - sadly he left us on Christmas day this year our condolences to his family ( they all rode Trials) and to the Victoria Motorcycle Club - Boomer was their oldest and long time original member.
