We enjoyed Leigh's pre-ride sermon,preching the good news re safe riding is always difficult when you are a little short but Leigh worked that one out too.

Once we had all been briefed it was off to Brisbane's West-end for some bike culture and our first cup of coffee for the day at Ellaspede Motorcycles.
we enjoy a great coffee and good conversation as we met up with a 15 or so of Leigh's rider network called "newbies" , that made over 30 bikes in the group ..biggest ever and one need lots of organising. Great to meet other bike lovers making the it a great collection of makes , models and ages.So we headed off out of the city, navigating our way out through samford village and up mount Glorious...a first for some of us.

We all enjoyed the catch up at Glorious and some headed off back to Brisbane as thew remainder prepared to make our way down the mountain and through come great sweeping turns , past the obligatory highway patrol to the famous Fernvale Bakery.

Leigh had some explaining to do regarding his two police "warnings"... being the ride leader and all...so he put forward his case and waited for the jury to deliver the verdict. (see below)
