Between 9.00 and 9.30 a total of 13 people, 7 solos
and 3 sidecars turned up at my place in
Parkerville - for those who don't know that is a hills
suburb of Perth - introductions were taking place with
tea and coffee on offer. The majority of people had met
before through various clubs etc.
It was good to see
such a good turnout in our first Perth district get-together. We all
sat around chatting for the best part
of an hour, meanwhile Doug Firth was busy with a few
onlookers making minor adjustments to his leading link
on the BMW sidecar, hopefully improving the
Then a suggestion of a short ride was made up
to Toodyay for lunch.
We all left Parkerville and headed up the road with me
leading the way. Just as I was approaching the T-junction of Toodyay Rd
at 10:30am, luckily slowing down to a speed
of about 50 kph, I had one hell of a surprise which turned out to be a
crossing my path about 3 metres in front of me, then
deciding to turn around back over the road, giving Norm
Stephenson a wake-up call!
After that excitement we headed up Toodyay Rd and all met at a cafe in Toodyay, some ordered lunch while others had cake and coffee. It was quite a warmish day and relief was had sitting under a misty fan of all things, I had never seen these before but it was effective. After an hour or so we headed home various ways. I along with a few others returned to Perth via Northam and arrived home about 1:30. A good day was had by all I think. Cheers safe riding Huw.
