|ok the picture didn't look too good!|
I arrived at Gateway the road to a completely dry road and number of newbies
|Phil and his big Kawasaki cruiser|
|Sam and his Yamaha|
|Peter and his green machine|
|Mark and his 250 Yamaha Virago|
|now where does the oil go ahain|
|oh come on leigh..its not that bad|
Oh yes...one more revamped bike.. my 900 custom resplendent with dual silver stripes (thanks Dave W) and a new sissy bar and luggage rack for our upcoming roadtrip
So with around 22 bikes in the end and a few pillions thrown in we assembled to head off to Esk for morning tea then around somerset dam and the back of Wivenhoe dams
So off to Esk bakery....another great ride with a great a great group of mates....
but I think Brenton recognised Des despite his helmet
it was fabulous riding one we got onto the Somerset-esk rd
it was a short stop for a refreshing drink at the Somerset camp store and we witnessed the benefits of a reverse gear...thanks Drew and the Honda Goldwing
|Leo can't believe it..a reverse gear|
we then made our way back to the famous fernvale bakery , with dome riders taking the Mt Gorious run home, as we watched the very dark clouds gathered
Most bikers headed off a little north of the storm but alas I had no choice but to make a run for it... I found out what getting hit with small hail felt like, fortunately I made it into my local servo (crammed in with a host of vehicles) before the golf size ball hail hit followed by torrential rain.
fortunately all other drivers made it home unscathed...ah what a ride in the great south east.
Check out a short video of the ride below..sorrow about the wind noise..could not mute.
