Initial briefing from Bob: Go through the Stirlings then hang a left turn.

Very brave: Steve on a 1964 Ariel Leader 250cc for a 1,500 km ride in the Aussie bush. Went fine.

Some of the local trees got large and beautiful-looking: my BMW R75/5 on the Boranup Drive off Caves Road, Margaret River.

Fantastic morning tea for the mob at Keith's, as his grandson checks out Garry's 500 Moto Guzzi.

The Nannup pub is always a drawcard.

They fed and entertained twenty of us for tea with excellent food and repartee from the staff.

We visited a shed-full of treasures of old bikes of many different makes.
