Well, we just got back from a trip to Nova Scotia, and it was another super ride that I won’t soon forget. The Cabot Trail was one of the items on the agenda and other than a little rain about halfway around (and fog) it was better than expected! It was a 450 mile day of fast riding, sightseeing and generally all around great motorcycling.  There was a weather sytem stuck on the island but we did our best to avoid most of the rain.

In Halifax we met up with the owner of British Cycle Supply at a Tim Horton’s and chewed the fat for hours. Thanks for taking the time to meet with us and I hope we can expand our businesses together. Later we took a tour of the Wolfville warehouse and aven met the resident wolf! (for real). If you need British motorcycle parts please give them a call. (after you give us a try of course!!)

If you haven’t done a Canadian ride, give it a try . The local Police is not out to ruin your day as long as you keep the speed down in the towns etc. We literally went as fast as we wanted with no problems; just show some respect.

Stay tuned kids because I have a feeling there are going to be some new parts and accessories available if we can make any of our ideas come to fruition.

One idea we’ve been playing with is to make new cyclinder heads for Norton 850 Commandos. These bikes have been flogged for 30 years and the heads are starting to show some wear. You can only rethread and repair them so many times before they turn to junk.

Post some feedback on this idea so we can gauge interest.

‘Ciao for now; sorry it’s so long between posts but I’ll try to do better.

WOW

We had a great time at the Mid-Ohio Racetrack, just wish we didn’t have to spend all day at our booth at the Swap Meet! No complaints though; we had a great response from the people there and customers bought up all the jackets we brought and lots of our accessories! Thanks to our customers who stopped by to say hello, always nice to put a face with the name.

On Sunday we met Gene Romero and got a signed poster which was super. Gene’s a legend and looks like he’s staying fit and healthy.

Saw some good racing and chatted up some guys from NY who were campaigning some Norton racers.

Good on yer lads! The bikes looked the biz and really ran well, good luck.

Mid Ohio is the best track I’ve visited in the US as far as accommodations and access and racing goes. Everthing looked like it ran smoothly and we had zero problems throughout the weekend. Top Marks!

We’ll be back next year with the BIG trailer…………..
