Frenchmans Bay BBQ

Old
          Bonneville and some old boys.
It was warm, but there were some very black clouds around as we rode out to the meeting point for the afternoon ride. We were down on numbers a little, but there were still around 20 on the ride. Maybe the chance of rain and being close to Christmas could have stopped a few.

There were a variety of bikes from old to new and both Honda trikes. Stopping at Elleker for an ice-cream, we were met by Ronnie and Antoinet. Geoff had ridden in from Denmark on a beautifully restored 1966 Triumph Bonneville.

John and Jan then took us on a meandering ride to Frenchmans Bay via Grassmere-Elleker Road and then through Robinson Estate.

As we rode down the hill towards Frenchmans the sky was black, but the Bay was in sunshine, and looked spectacular. For a change all the BBQ’s were working well.

          Aussie BBQ.
A variety of beers, soft drinks, wine and coffee was brought out to accompany the sizzling snaggers and steaks - very enjoyable. We spent a while socialising before those clouds were starting to look more menacing and it was decided to head for home.

We headed into a very light shower just before Albany and a few spots after, but nothing like what I was expecting. A most enjoyable afternoon. Thanks Andy for doing back-up duties.
