Midweek ride 6 Feb 2013

Mad Dogs and Englishman out in the midday sun!  Well maybe no mad dogs but the riders were either English or Englishmodernclassic marysville web heritage-most of them anyway, but the midday sun was a truly gruelling 37deg.

It was cool when we left Greensborough on the Yan Yean Road towards Whittlesea, Kinglake West and down to Yea for morning tea at the Bakery.  Unfortunately two busloads of tourists appeared on the scene and the bakery staff was well and truly flat out. ( All three of them).  Our fearless leader Reg set off down the street to  a less crowded establishment and when I say less crowded that crowd consisted of the two tour bus drivers.

Off again on a back road to Alexandra and it was a terrific road.  A few hills and twisties, lots of trees and cows and no traffic and Reg held the “Regroups” down to what appeared to be his bare minimum.  (The last one at Yarck was due to a minor bike problem that got sorted)  A beautiful section of road, none the less.

It was hot when we arrived in Alexandra for petrol and unfortunately got a bit extended with minor problems being sorted out before heading off to Marysville for lunch.  The flies were over joyed at our arrival and gave us their full attention for the duration of the stay.

The last “Re-Group” was celebrated at Dom Dom for a pit stop before heading to Healesville and splitting off to our separate homes.

Midweek run 2 Jan 2013

Peter had nearly finished the ride briefing when Adrian Nash pulled up on his Kawasaki and said “I’m not happy”.  Adrian had gonemidweek 2jan2013 edit 2 to the ‘other ‘ start point we sometimes use in Cranbourne, before realising he had got it wrong. No matter, 9 riders and 1 pillion were soon on their way. Just to explain, Peter Cullen was our ride leader for the day as Ed Sleightholm was recovering from recent surgery. (Hope you’re back on the saddle soon).

Ed had supplied Peter the ride route, but Peter remarked he had to go over the route twice before getting it down pat.
We travelled east through flat countryside to Bayles and Modella before arriving at the green hills and tall eucalypts around Drouin, stopping at Moe for morning tea.

High Country Muster 24-25 Nov 2012

Ray Harrison has been running this rally for the club for 15 years. He reckons he won’t be doing another one so 33riders at start_800x600 of us joined him over the weekend of 24-25 November to enjoy the riding and company that this rally always offers.

Saturday dawned bright and sunny so I put the sun cream, hat, sunnies, summer gloves and water bottle in the tank bag before setting off for the start at Ray’s place at Croydon North. After briefing us Ray led the way along quiet back roads to join the Maroondah Highway to Healesville where traffic delayed us momentarily.

Steam Rally Lake Goldsmith 4 Nov 2012

The day was dry which is quite a novelty for me just about all through that drought we had every time I rode I was rained on. Tenmonster steam bucket motorcycles arrived at the starting point for a 9-00 start, in future I will give the coffee a miss at this place it is probably the worst in the known Universe. There were the usual quips about no back up trailer and my Norton which comes from a long lineage of failing to arrive but I was confident, there was no way the couple of German Oldies were going to outshine a terribly British piece of fine craftsmanship.

Three Rivers Run – Report - 22 July 2012

A good turn up of 21 members met at the start in Laverton under slightly grey skies. Peter Cullen our leader for the run down to Corio for the start of the TRR gave us a briefing and we were off on time down the Geelong Freeway. A smart move by Peter was a regroup at the Geelong turn off that made sure no back riders would miss a lone marshal and keep going on the Geelong by pass.
