Okay, so it was wet and cold, but did that stop us, nearly, but
not quite. Chris and I met Bob Boyes and Garry Blake at the info
bay as another shower passed by. Think anyone else is coming?
Ha, donít think so.
So off we went, past the Porongurups, heading towards to
Stirlings, there was a reasonable amount of rain, but Iíd
definitely been colder. Bluff Knoll cafe was a welcome sight,
and Glen Oliver was there to meet us. There was a fire going on
the verandah, so a pleasant cuppa was had in comfort.
John Davis had been in touch and said we were welcome to come
to his and Kerryís place for lunch, brilliant. John also said he
would join us at Amelup. By the time we reached him most of the
rain had disappeared and the sun was appearing. Nevertheless the
Davisí house was a welcome sight.
With bikes parked in the shed we were welcomed inside with a blazing fire, nibbles and mugs of coffee or tea. Shortly John McKinnon and Chris Sainty joined us, they had taken the dirt roads via Broomehill.
Before long it was time to head home, we all split up a bit, I
needed some fuel and Garry was going to have a look at an Ariel
frame that was in Shaneís shed.
We were riding down the South Formby Road when this mad car
driver was waving at me with something black in his hand, you
never know these days with all the road rage around, so
yeah another crazy, keep going.
Luckily Garry who was behind me clicked on and stopped. It was
John Davis trying to catch us up with Bob Boyes wet weather
pants in his hand. I was wondering where Garry was. We turned
back and got the full story, Garry gave it to me to put in the
tank bag to give to Bob.
The ride home was great, the sky was black in places, but the Stirlings, Porongurups and surrounding paddocks were bathed in sunshine, rainbows completed the scene. It just looked fantastic, better than a plain blue sky in a way.
There were a couple of very light showers, but nothing to
dampen our spirits. Great ride, thanks to the ones who turned up
and also a special thank you for Kerry for the food, love those
round bacon and egg things and the hot drinks.
