Porongorup ride to Brendon Flower’s BF Customs Motorcycle Fabrications

Story: Antoinet Pics: John Mac and Antoinet

Info Bay roll-up.
New club member Brendon Flower has started his Custom Motorcycle Fabrication business in the Porongurups. The “shed rides” are always very popular and this ride was great: 35 people on the one today! By the time we got to the info bay most had arrived already.

Inside the shed.
The weather was beautiful and everyone was keen to get going. Ronnie told everyone where to go and to maybe stop at the turn off to Brendon's place. We took Chester Pass Road and turned onto the Porongurups Road, then it was only 7 km till we found their beautiful property.

Brendon was waiting for us, the urn was going and lots of goodies on the go; sausage rolls, cakes and biscuits. Everything was very well organised.

I'm sorry to tell you I don't know many details about all the great work Brendon is doing but it all looked very good, the workshop was very tidy and there were some amazing bikes stored in the shed.

It was wonderful to catch up with members although by now it had gotten really warm. Some members were going straight home, others were going to have lunch in Mount Barker somewhere under the shade.

Brendon did stainless work on fabulous John’s 750/4
Ronnie and I and a couple of other members got our lunch at the bakery and caught up with some more on Mount Barker hill. Thanks to Don for doing back up and thank you very much Brendon for your hospitality, we wish you all the best.
