Narrikup Ride

ANOTHER luverly sunny winter’s day, we seemed to have been lucky dodging the rain once again.

NARRIKUP: BMW, Yamaha Royal Star and BSA — Variety is the spice of life.

There was a huge turnout of around 30 bikes including 2 trikes (Jack Rowe’s road testing his newly built trike again ready for the Philip Island trip in October), 2 sidecars and an assortment of everything else ranging from 250’s to 1200cc+.

Peter Barry, a visitor, came along on his very original 75/6 BMW, and yes, there was the usual infestation of BMW’s including Greg’s newish K1200RS - great looking bike.

Not to be outdone Fabrice was on his new Harley, and it was the first Club ride for Peter & Lyn Davies’ Harley Road King as well.

About 12ks from Denmark I spotted Mike and Gloria coming out to meet us on their A10 BSA. They then did a Uee joining the rest of the crowd before stopping on the banks of the Denmark River.

These days we’ve been turning right as we go over the bridge into Denmark, parking in front of the Pergola/BBQ/etc and today we took up the whole carpark. About 7 or 8 decided to ride the Scotsdale Road - One of the best roads around I reckon.

It was the first time Peter had travelled the circuit and was amazed at the great views to Williams Bay. By the time we got back to Denmark the rest had headed off to Narrikup (lunch stop).

The Denbarker road has been resurfaced and is brilliant, unlike the road into Narrikup which has some magnificent pot holes as many a sore back can tell you.
By the time we got there most were eating lunch, and after checking out the shop we joined them as well.

It wasn’t long before there were some ominous black clouds on the horizon and it wasn’t long before most had hit the road. Another great social/ride day.

Sat down in front of the tele to see the Dockers win by a point (yipee) and then when speaking to our daughter in Perth we were told of the wet, wild and windy day it was!
