The Club Trials day at John and
McKinnon’s was held the morning after the Club Dinner. This is always a
great morning and very entertaining.
John had once again laid out an excellent course on his property to test the skills of Club members. John Sinclair tackled the course on his R1200GSA, no mean feat on such a large bike.
Loose Bruce and John Mc were on R1100 and
R1200R’s and Mike Stephenson on his ‘70’s road going 450 Honda. The
rest rode a mixture of off-road and postie bikes. Loose Bruce and
Ross hit the deck to the delight of the spectators, of which there were
many. Antoinet hit a house - but not many saw that - web ed!
some of the riders tried the advanced
course a bit ambitiously - considering the nature of the bikes. Bruce
was also seen rebounding off a tree at one stage. Clive Oakes rode very
well showing off his trials riding skills jumping logs and tackling
some of the advanced stages easily.
Lunch was a BYO BBQ with Maureen supplying a
salad and John a glass or two of wine. Presentations were made by John,
the winners receiving a bottle of specially labelled wine.
