Old Pictures

Photos from Bob Rees and Ian Jury

Room with a view.
My stock of old photos sent in by members has decreased so I thought I would put his picture in. Taken just over 30 years ago when Chris and I went for a ride up along the WA coast on our R80 BMW. We camped at the Blowholes, near Carnarvon, we were the only ones there. I liked this picture for the NO FISHING sign in the dunny. We had petrol tank panniers on the bike too, dont see many of them these days (copied them from ones that John Mac bought in the 70s in London, although ours were made locally in leather).
We stopped at the same place last year coming back from a trip in our sidecar outfit. There were so many people there that we kept on going.

A long time ago, in a place not too far away.
Ian Jury sent in this photo taken on a ride in the early 90s. From the left: Ian, John Mac, Chris, Heather, Bob and Rowley. I need more old photos for your magazine, so have a look in your drawers - dig em out and send em in.
