ALBANY VINTAGE & CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE CLUB

The Broomehill Show & Shine

Line-up at BroomehillA small but enthusiastic band of starters showed for the long journey to Broomehill for the Aqua Festival and Bike Show & Shine. At Mt Barker Mike & Gloria Hyland and Mike Saunders were waiting. After a short chat we headed for Cranbrook where we stopped for a break and a welcome cup of coffee. We arrived at Broomehill about 10.30 and lined the bikes up with the others already there.

There were about 2 dozen bikes, about half belonged to Club members. Wes (from Bremer) was there with his Ducati GT and Barry (from Cuballing) also had his Triumph on display. There were two interesting trikes, one was Ding Bob's which was ridden by Gary from Katanning. The other was a K75 BMW brought down by the blokes from Munich Motorcycles.

We then spent a few relaxing hours strolling around the Show, having lunch and a couple of drinks. The results of the Motorcycle Show & Shine saw Clive's Gold Wing get Best Japanese - prize was a Rossi Jacket and I was awarded runner-up in the Best European with my BMW R69S and scored a Dri-Rider Tank Bag. Best European was a 1955 BSA Golden Flash, recently restored by a bloke in Katanning. We then headed home,with the majority heading through Gnowangerup and Stirlings.

The scenery looked stunning, particularly with the canola out and the Stirlings making a picturesque back-drop. Unfortunately Ron had a break-down on his Triumph and we were forced to leave it in the bush. He returning later to pick it up. It was still running, but it didn't sound too good, so Ron did the sensible thing.
Mike and Gloria left us at Kamballup. It was certainly a big ride for the A10 BSA which went very well.

A great day, great company and great weather.
