Bring Your Oldest Bike Ride

Yes, it's the first weekend in January and time to bring out your oldest bike for a short ride to Youngs Siding and back to Emu Point for lunch. Unfortunately the weather didnít look too good to start off with, and it obviously put a lot of members off who do not wish their oldest bike to be the wettest.

It was good to see Glen Oliver arrive on his Indian from the Gnowangerup area, and with Ronnie on his Indian they made a handsome couple!

Off we went with Steve and Yvonne following with the trailer. Which once again came into use, this time the unfortunate victim was Mike who is still sorting out the gremlins in the lovely little Honda, which decided to blow a head gasket.

Ronnieís brother was riding too, so it was an international ride, as he and his family are visiting from Friesland in Holland.

After socialising for a while at Youngs Siding it was time to head back to Albany, a very pleasant ride.
The weather was still not the best and I was surprised anyone turned up at Emu Point, but half a dozen or so brave souls arrived to meet Lurline who was waiting with Philís lunch.

We spent an enjoyable hour there before heading for home. Thanks to everyone who turned up and especially Steve and Yvonne for doing back-up duties (at short notice).
