There was a large turn-out of around 40 bikes and many pillions for
the ride to Bremer Bay Pub for lunch. Loose Bruce was down from Perth
and Ronnie lent him his Harley so as he could join in the ride - hoping
maybe for a sale! There were also a number of visitors enjoying the
Unfortunately for us Chris’ Ducati
played up just before Manypeaks and we were stuck by the side of the
road. Or would have been if Ross Williams hadn’t turned back and
brought his trailer out to take the sick bike home. It was much
appreciated Ross, it would have taken a couple of hours by the time
he’d got back to his place, thanks mate. It turned out the problem was
the crank sensor. If it's not working there’s no spark.
I believe all bikes (and cars) with computers have them and its not
unheard of for them to stop working. The sensor’s made in Germany by
the way, not Italy - so look out all you computerised bikers no matter
what brand you own!
But from what we hear everyone else had an enjoyable ride and the
food was good. Apparently Jo found that one of the essential keys to
riding a Harley can be found in the rubbish bin.
Jack Rowe’s latest alteration to
his ST Honda, apart from altering the rear end and lowering it
(considerably), is putting a hole in the seat where one's balls
normally reside to make a more comfortable ride!
The hole also doubles as a stubbie holder.
He has now moved the windscreen, handlebars and all controls back
for a more comfortable ride - Jack’s never afraid to be different.
Pictured trying out the new handlebar and screen is Clive Smith with
Jack giving him the details on how he can alter his Honda -
although I don’t think that this will happen eh Clive?
