shed ride and BBQ was something a bit different. We set off (over 30

He has a good variety of bikes, all British with a lot of old

The ladies took off for a look at the house which is very well built
with a lot of individual features.
Colin and Sue have certainly put a lot of work into their property, building the house out of bricks they made themselves.
Shortly it was time to go to Glen and Kay Taylor's house, which was
a bit closer to town. Their place is close to the King River with

The BBQ was lit and the left-over sausages from the Tuning
Day/Sausage Sizzle were put on.
Thanks to those who provided the salad, bread, cakes and coffees etc. and to Marilyn for doing back-up duties.
