Take the time to check out Paul Brodie from the Vancouver area. Nice to see some home-grown talent in the works. Even better, he is willing to share his skills in the classroom. http://flashbackfab.com/
Torch Motorcycles is in the process of organizing an intimate selection of bikes at the Hand Built Show. Details to follow

See you there
This is not a Hoax – Swap meet has been cancelled.
TSAWWASSEN SWAP MEET HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Due to circumstances beyond our control.
We hope that you will do two things to help us spread the word as we are hoping to contact all the usual attendees.
1. Pass this email along to all your motorcycling buddies so that no one shows up on the 27th looking for the swap meet.
2. If you received our poster in the mail recently and now this email, PLEASE email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address on that envelope so we know who has been contacted.
The Mt Vernon WVM Swap Meet is on Saturday April 26th and we hope you will support them. http://www.washingtonvintagemotorcyclists.org
We would like to thank everyone for their past support and look forward to seeing you in 2015.

Troy and Ang have produced some motorcycle riding street adventure shows on the local channels. If you want to know more about riding in Alberta, Alaska, Mexico and other places they have ridden to, then check out You Tube where their videos can be viewed. I watched the Mexico ride and gleaned a lot of information that will help me when I make the ride south some day. (soon I hope)
You can’t beat having someone do the leg work for you. You can judge what parts of the ride will benefit you the most.

Check out the vimeo, The Decline of BSA it is 29 minutes long but worth the view. An inside look at the machinery, methods and management that was outdated. The loyalty of the workers, some of whom were there for forty years of the life. Only to see its’ demise.
