i have insurance till middle of dec. wonder if it's worth it to get a heated jacket lining and heated gloves. would make these sunny but freezing fall rides more comfortable.

then again, it's bound to start raining everyday soon. maybe i'll pull my insurance after i move next week. :|

visibility yesterday morning was brutal.
I was glad that I had a bicycle light clipped onto the back of my backpack as an added measure for visibility

sorry if this is a really stupid question, but how did you guys decide you want to ride a motorcycle? I've wanted one for a few years but have never ridden on one. Is there any place that will let me try riding before I decide whether to take the PRS course or not?

unfortunately without a license, you can't try one out. Unless one of your friend is willing to lend his/her bike for you to try out.


Season is over for me, bike is in storage. Gives me time to think whether I should keep the green beast or sell it and get the new 899 Italian deer magnet. LOL first world problems.

After 31 Years,

Western Powersports

is having a Closing Down Sale!



Hello Everyone!



Yes, you've read it correctly. After 31 years in business here in Langley, I have decided to close Western Powersports.



It's time for me to retire and move on to other things. Yamaha will be moving up to Holeshot, and Triumph may be staying here. We'll make sure that our current customers continue to get great service as time goes on, no matter what happens. Many of our staff will be moving to Holeshot with Yamaha, so there will be many familiar faces.



As with everything, there are bad and good parts of this news. The bad, of course, is that Western Powersports will no longer be around; the good is that
Western Powersports will be having a "Retirement / Closing Down Sale" where we will be selling most of our Clothing and Accessories at, or even below, cost. So there will be all kinds of deals; way better than the Motorcycle show at Tradex.



On Sale Right Now ---Triumph Clothing and Accessories, as well as All of our dirt riding gear. ATV Accessories, Dirt Boots, and Yamaha Add-ons are also on at great savings; And we're having a final Tyre sale on every Tyre we have in stock. Next week, we'll have even more items on sale.



Western Powersports will be here until just before Christmas, and we will continue to take care of you everyday until then.


Demos, Demos, Demos!



ALL of our

Triumph and Yamaha Motorcycle Demos

are being sold off-

NOW's the time!



Our sales guys are weeping with every bike they sell.

You will NEVER see these deals again!



Limited Quantities. Don't Wait!


Thanks to all of our customers and friends that have dealt here for the last 31 years.

Sincerely,
Marq
Western Powersports

Kinda unlikely because, they can just move all of the consumable product to the other store.

If he is acquitted shouldn't his bike not have been forfeited?

The motorcycle was auctioned off for almost five thousand dollars by BCs Civil Forfeiture Office, which sells off property used for unlawful activity.
