Birthday Greetings go out today to Janis Clark of Mountain Motorcycle in Coquitlam - we hope she has a great day.

Yesterday we went to Kelowna to deliver Opti Oil and decided to drive back via the Westside road, and stop off at The Valley of the Sun to visit Roy. - Although the Bear Creek area looks good for riding at least low down - once you go up that last bit of elevation around Fintry - everything is still looking very wintery - this pic was taken of Roy’s front yard showing my van parked on the road.

We had a great visit, catching up on a lot of news and also watched a really good old MX tape on Netflicks - which showed Malcolm Davis on the AJS stormer, doing well against the all conquering factory Suzuki’s  of Joel Robert and Silvain Gebours.

Don’t forget that we stock everything for Trials - The Wulf stuff is great quality at a very reasonable price - tested by ourselves for many years.

This is Scott Ellis on a Greeves “Pathfinder” 175 at the 1970 Scottish  - That was the year that I did a Magazine test on this model at Blackfoot Park ( in the snow) - I was just getting involved with the sport in Canada, and borrowed the bike from “Ton-Up Cycle” in Calgary. - Although Greeves had some success with the Puch engined bike, the Spanish Amada had arrived with Bultaco, Montesa and Ossa -  the factories all hiring top British riders to promote them, so as they say “The writing was on the wall” for the British Motorcycle Industry.
May be an image of one or more people, motorcycle and outdoors

Check out the Calgary skyline in the background - The Calgary Tower the tallest building back then in 1970. - The 175cc Puch Engine had a massive cylinder which measured over ten inches across. - I seem to recall having quite a lot of fun on the bike and won the award for “Best Opposite” the next day in the Trial ( something else I found to be very strange in the way awards were presented in Canada back then)
