A perfect 23 degree day greeted the ten of us riding to Licola. Riders were: 6 BMWs, Jack, Sam, Nick, Graham, Terry, Andrew, 2 Triumphs, Rick, Dave and a new rider, Brendan. Jeff surprised us all arriving on his son's Yamaha MT-09, a long term loan while Jeff awaits the arrival of a new BMW 1300 GS. The Yamaha was in showroom condition. Jeff's issue all day was the tiny size of the instrument panel and the even smaller information on it. You really needed a magnifier to read it.
You are here
Eight riders came for ride. Gary, Vince, Paul, Graham, Les, Ian, Nick and Andrew leading. Thanks to Nick for taking rear rider role. We were all hoping for sunshine which never happened properly, just a brief glimpse upon arrival at Seymour. We didn't get rained on either so on balance it wasn't bad. Five BMWs and two Suzukis and one very quick Kawasaki H2SXSE.
Eight riders fronted up for our ride. Steve Bailes rode out to say hello to us all before heading home for a social day. He did inform us that a new occupant is coming to his house and one is departing. A 1050 V-Strom may be soon seen. This left seven for our ride on what promised to pleasant weather on clean roads. This was most welcome as I'm sure some of us put in a couple of ours cleaning up from the Sth Gippsland roads last week.
Another sunny morning greeted us at Lilydale. Considering it is mid Winter we are doing well. If my memory serves me, Mike, Triumph, kindly doing the rear rider position, Jeff, BMW, Ian, BMW, John, Triumph, Vinnie, BMW, Jack,BMW, Colin, BMW, Paul, Kawasaki and myself, Yamaha.
