I remember being 12-13 years old when I first saw a Honda Trail 70. It was love at first sight. I wanted one. I begged my dad to get me one but he, like most fathers, feared that I would kill myself on it. So I never got it. But oh did I want it. Years later I got to ride one in the country, and it was everything I thought it would be. To this day every time I stumbled across one, I always stop and stare and for a moment it brings me back to that care free time in my life that I first laid eyes on it.
While browsing through my photo archives, I stumbled upon this little gem of a picture. It’s so true that a picture is worth a thousand words! Having said that, I find that it just screams “having a good time!”. It does not appear forced or posed for. It’s bright and summery and it just makes you smile!
I was looking at this pic and thought that I should post some more from that day.I initially only published this one, because it was my favorite. These pics were taken at the 5th edition of the Moto Mondial of Montreal that took place June 30 to July 2nd 2001. That was the last year that this event took place. It was a great event. There were car and bike shows, lots of people partying, and plenty of races to see. All this took place at circuit Gilles Villeneuve on a glorious hot Montreal weekend. It was a really good time. It is a shame that it was not profitable enough to continue happening. I decided to publish the rest of the pics, just as a reminder of that weekend.
