Will be there most of the weekend with the wife (Manning the club booth for the canadian sidear owners club)

Will be taking a look at some extra bits of gear - going to put together some cheap stuff to sit up at the cottage with the cottage bike so will always be ready to go for a ride. (At least, once the CT90 gets resurrected... blew a hole in the piston riding it back to toronto in the fall.)

Looking forward to pictures of the show... We unfortunates on the Prairies are not included in the Road Show anymore.

Apparently some guy in the audience started trash talking Jordan enough that he lost his concentration and fell.
"17 championships, my grandmother has 17 championships!". Or something like that.


The show did carry on.


I was thinking about one of these, until my son decided he liked it too( he get's his licence next spring)

I think this is more likely what I'll buy. According to the Husky Sales rep, only 40 for Canada. Retail $8200.00
I know it's just a revise BMW, but the dealer I last worked for sells them, so I should be well looked after.

That's just a sponsor giving words of encouragement!!

Actually, his back brake was leaking, that's why he kept looping over backwards. It's a true pro who can continue when something like that happens.
Those rear master cylinders on today's trials bike are so incredibly small that they always have problems with them.

It was great to run into you, Jamie!
I can always guarentee that I will run into at least 1 ADVer at the show.

Did you sit on that bike?

What a POS! That seat made stock BMW seats feel like a well used Barkalounger. It was fucking BRUTAL!!!
That bike felt weird. The seating position was uncomfortable as hell.
The parts were also much cheaper, in look and feel than the bike it is fashioned after....
Save some money and buy a lightly used X-Country with a re-built seat and some nice farkles!
