That pre-unit BSA is very pretty. Probably sounds wonderful with the straight pipes too.

Did you know Stephanie started the BSA Owners Club of Canada, way back when?

She's hell for sexy, and has good taste besides. I say that straight up. I promise not to hit on her, though. She'd crack me in the jaw, that's certain. Never mess with a gal that rides a BSA.

I had a very pretty '68 Firebird Scrambler at one time. With a pipe on each side.

My brother spent some time hanging out with Eric Pritchard of Ormstown and his vintage racing group from the CVMG Montreal Chapter. Eric is known to go around the vintage track at Louden like a bat out of hell on his Triumph.

This is a purely anecdotal story. It was told by my brother. He's sometimes hard to understand, as you have to sort out the various part numbers from the story.

One of Mr. Pritchard's gang showed up for an unlimited vintage motocross race on his '68 BSA. As is true with most older riders, he was a wee deef. He heard "unlimited" and moved into his pole position. Looking around, he was surprised to see bikes fully thirty years younger lined up. He'd ended up in modern unlimited.

Too late now. The vintage Beezer rider gave some stick, and chucked rocks all the way.

He came in second.

It's a great story, and somewhat plausible. Any verification?

Wow, you do have some interesting Canada Connections.

We're sure to get complaints soon from people who want to talk 'Trip' though if we keep this up.

That's the plan. Doesn't always work that way but we can always try.

Got me a watch cap in wool. Good to go.

I've been looking for some time for a classic knitted wool watch cap. (Toque, en Francais). I thought the creature had disappeared off the planet. Mum sent me two touques in acrylic -- which isn't as warm as wool, and gets greasy and unpleasant with sweat and wear. I obtained a military surplus fleece cap, which was light and warm, but kept everything damp when I sweat.

For my money, the cap, knit, watch (100% wool) is the secret to harmony. I'm wearing the one I found now. Bliss.

And a recent pic, on a friend's bike.

Stop BS

I have a question about helmet communications! Any one know how to adapt Motorola walkie-talkie as a helmet communicator? Any other cheaper ways to do it? Experience, advice, ideas? And also I have a Q! What BSA stands for?

I've been using the Scala Rider Q2 headset for a couple of years. When it works, it works pretty well, Sometimes it is slow to sync with another unit, and it is limited in the number of headsets you can connect to via Bluetooth. I tried using walkie-talkie type units (FMRS, I think) and they were something of a pain. You needed to push a button to talk, which isn't always convenient, and they are half-duplex. This means you can either talk or listen, but not both. The Scala is voice-activated and full-duplex. I have two Scala units if you want to use them up to the Rock.
