Apologies from Don Jennings who could not attend due to a prior commitment.
The day’s journey began with the short ride down to Williamstown where the riders stopped for morning tea at Jack Rabbits, now located at a new spot at No.9 Main St. Toni provided the usual good service as we gathered around the big table.
Continuing on to Springton all went well until we entered the Barossa Valley and the wind really picked up to the extent that the smaller bikes wobbled their way up the road. Angaston was a welcome sight because of this and all had a good lunch at various venues.
The return back to Mount Pleasant via Kyneton produced similar conditions with the wind easing as the destination came into view. There were no breakdowns for the day.
On arrival at the Totness Inn, we adjourned to the dining room for the usual refreshments of coffee and cake. Disaster struck right then as Sandi (our host) announced that our usual freshly cooked banana cake tragically crashed as it left the oven, however the backup supply of cherry and apple slice filled in so well that it was hard to notice the change of menu.
Thanks go to all the usual helpers who make our Moped Plus event successful, on this trip:- Marshalls – Roger O’Loughlin, Mick Hayes & Tony Earnshaw, tail-end Charlie – Alan Wallis, Back-up service – Wayne Williams (and dog!).
