Cheynes Beach Ride

Two colourful YamahasOnce again a good turn-out of members for the Cheynes Beach ride, with around 30 bikes including four members from Denmark who can add at least another 100kms to their ride. We certainly cover a lot of brands: Ariel, BSA, BMW, Harley, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Moto Guzzi, Sunbeam, Triumph and Yamaha all represented on the ride, dating from 1947 to 2009.

Red Triumph outfit to offset the YamsWe passed a large mob of roos just before the Kalgan bridge and by the time we got to the “Rusty Bikes” Phil and Lurline’s Triumph Speed Twin was getting a bit overheated, so they decided to head for home. Several more turned up at Upper Kalgan to join the ride including Russell on his KTM.

Confusion between Guzzis and rusty old bikes?We headed into Cheynes with no more bike problems and sat on the beach where we had lunch. On the return to Albany Chris Prescott’s lighting, horn and indicator wiring melted on his ‘76 T3 Moto Guzzi but he managed to get home OK, so Des had no customers for the back-up vehicle which is always good news.
