A Great Sheltered Spot at Cheynes

Broken K75 - sob
Broken K75S - no wheel drive

Another beautiful summer's day which drew out a big crowd of over 30 bikes and over 40 riders and pillions and a dog.

Not such a good day for John McKinnon who had clutch trouble with his BMW as he left the Amity carpark which stranded him in the middle of Albany Highway.

With the back-up vehicle to the rescue the bike was put on the trailer and taken to John’s house. Maureen was surprised to see his early arrival.

The rest of the crew rode on(unaware of John’s plight) around the foreshore and Mt Clarence surveying the waveless Princess Royal Harbour.

First stop was the Rusty Bikes at the Upper Kalgan Tearooms - a rusty trike and scooter now being added to the collection. And then onto Cheynes Beach where the Penny family were there to meet us.

It really was a great spot right on the beach but very well sheltered. A bit of reconnaissance by the mid week riders found this spot. After lunch was devoured some of the more adventurous jumped in the water for a swim, not all with proper bathers either.

I tried to take a picture of Ian Alexander but the camera refused to work - very discerning of it!

Most stayed for quite a while chatting and relaxing before heading home.
