The day started wet, cold and grey.
We left our
meeting spot with about 16 bikes. It started to rain when we were
riding towards Menang Drive. Andrew turned around back home to get
another bike so his boots didn’t
get flooded with water. Ian did back up and followed us to Denmark.
Ronnie and I were on the old Harley so
we couldn’t go as fast as all
the other bikes. We took Scotsdale Drive and had more rain. We parked
all the bikes at a friend of Jim’s and took 4WD cars to Jim’s place.
The urn was hot and Jim’s wife, Yvonne, had made lots of yummy cakes
and sausage rolls. We had a lovely time there chatting and enjoying all
the goodies. Ronnie ate so much he could hardly eat his lunch later on.
Ian had waited for Andrew to arrive and they
caught up with us at Jim’s
place. Ian wanted to turn the car and trailer but got bogged on the
side of the road. Lucky we had lots of helpers close by. Off again in
the three 4WD’s and we had a look at the beautiful
property of one of Jim’s neighbours.
Then we were taken to the secret waterfall,
the road was in worse state
compared to last year. It was a bit later in the year and there was
heaps of water in the waterfall, pretty amazing in the middle of the
We had lunch and a wander around the place and listened to lots of old stories. The rain had stopped and every now and then we had some sunshine.
It was a great ride with great company. Thanks again to Jim and Yvonne for organizing another great event. Also thanks to Ian who drove a four wheel drive to bring us at the waterfall.
