Booleroo Trip, 24th March 2024

6 Apr
Hi Guys,
                 Myself and fellow member Leon van Brussel decided to attend the annual Booleroo Steam Traction Rally. We departed from my place at Cheltenham at just after 06:30am. We arrived just after 09:30am. The event opened at 07:30am and was scheduled to close at 16:00 pm (4.00pm). We decided to drive and took our own vehicles.
   We stayed until about 14:30pm (2:30pm) having walked the exhibits and enjoyed the fine weather and friendly participants.
   This is a yearly one day event and although there are ample camping grounds and caravan sites we concluded that it would be an enjoyable day trip for our fellow members. There were a few motorcyclists but none were camping.
   Please find enclosed the programme and a few photos in PNG format. This is a bulky communication and may take some time to download on your end.
   There was also a Swap Meet on site with an eclectic array of items for sale.
 
 
 Dave Garrett

Midweek Ride, 3rd April 2024

6 Apr


Only six bikes turned up at Hawthorn Crescent, can’t blame riders for staying home, it was
grey drizzly and cold for this time of year. Four riders indicated they would drop out after the
morning stop, the remaining two were happy to go along with that, so Mount Pleasant was
nominated for our first stop. As a change form Greenhill Rd, we took Gorge Rd, one rider turned
back with fuel problems. That left five. We turned off Kersbrook Rd to Checker Hill Rd then left on Forreston Rd. At the junction with Warren Rd, another rider turned for home, that left four. The four held a brief council and decided Birdwood Bakery would be warm and comfortable.

A pleasant coffee break indoors, then another rider turned for home leaving three. The three took the most direct road through Woodside and Balhannah, another rider turned off at the Hahndorf, Bridgewater roundabout. Two followed the Freeway through the tunnel and split up at the Tollgate.

An interesting and fun ride, when one thought about it at home with a cuppa in hand.


Next ride: To Balaklava Sunday 7th April.
