Quiz for today - What was the new Trials technique that Bernie introduced????

Throughout our Trials journey in Western Canada, we have visited a lot of different places, promoting the sport, first around 1971 - when I started in Alberta, followed by showing off the  new TY 250 when I joined Yamaha - putting on demos in far away places like Dawson Creek  BC  and Saskatoon  etc - then later after moving to the Okanagan we helped with Trials in Grand Forks- and Midway plus other neat places to ride with local Trials riders, - Here is a pic from one trip we did to Midway, where Gord Walker  lived and showed us some nice terrain right on the Canada/USA border - this is a pic from one of those days.

If you want see a good video of the Ladies TDN - click onto You-Tube - and watch the Estonian gal riding - only problem is we couldn’t understand the language, but still worth watching as it helps to see what our gals were up against in those sections.

Today I’m going riding - hope to take a few pics
