It was an early start for a short ride to the Lower King bridge for a BBQ BYO breakfast. Being as it was such a short ride we were wondering whether it would be worth bringing along the trailer.
But going by past experience we thought we might check out the
BBQ’s first to see if they were OK for gas, if not we’ve got the
Club BBQ. Andrew Haydock kindly took a ride out there late
Saturday before the Sunday breakfast. One BBQ not working and
the other had limited gas. So yep, we’ll take the Club trailer
complete with cooking facilities.
Considering the early start and a cool morning there was a good turn-out. Daniel rode in from Bow River on the Guzzi after an early start and Mike Henderson turned up too. Mike and Isabelle are now on their way to the Eastern States where they will roam around for a while.
Ian hadn’t had the Matchless out for quite a while, but he
started it in the shed and it went well, so in it roared into
the meeting point. Unfortunately it wasn’t roaring so much when
it was time to leave and it needed a push. Undeterred Ian
rumbled along until the Matchie decided to have a rest, and on
the trailer it went. Hmmm, lucky we brought it.
A beautiful place to have breakfast even though the wind was a
bit cool. The emus were poking their heads over the fence trying
to see what was going on.
Phil then told me his sidecar outfit had been playing up a bit
and it might be prudent to follow him home. Ian’s place was on
the way, the trailer certainly gives you piece of mind.
It was nice to meet Steve and Chris, new members of the Club who had recently moved down from Perth.
Steve Lucas arrived on his pushbike as his motorbike felt like having the day off, must be contagious.
Ian's bike then decided it was fed up with being chauffeured around and fired up after a couple of kicks, so this time he did roar off into the distance.
Phil and Lurline made it home without any problems, but the ignition needs to be checked out. I went back-up and it was good to be of service.
