Motorcycle noise sparks $850,000 lawsuit by Alberta retiree against local ‘cretins’


Motorcycle noise drives the squirrels nuts and drives $850K lawsuit

There are pink flowers aplenty, terraces, manicured trees and shrubs, three waterfalls, a tea house and a pair of antique doors, imported all the way from China and set into one of the walls.

Motus Motorcycles breaks land speed record for pushrod engine

American V 4 pushrod 1600 CC motor with some (proven) big growl. Check out the link to their site. They claim that they are production ready and waiting to pass EPA testing for the home market. Canada?? We can only hope.

Motus Sets Two Land Speed Records, Rides Home
Press Release- Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah- Motus Factory Racing set the two fastest land speed records of any American production motorcycle at the AMA-sanctioned 2014 Bonneville Speed Trials. Competing in P-PP and P-PG classes, the new records also establish the stock Motus MSTR as the fastest production pushrod motorcycle in the world.

The Motus MSTR motorcycles were raced in stock, unmodified condition with just the mirrors, turn signals and license plates removed. With top speeds of 168.69 mph and records of 163.98 mph and 165.81 mph respectively, company founders Brian Case and Lee Conn set the records before re-attaching the mirrors and license plates and riding 1900 miles back to the Motus factory in Alabama…in 30 hours.

Paul Brodie with Flashback Fabrications

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.

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.


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 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.


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)

Ride StopNGoYou can also view them on  Facebook and their website  

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.
