If you frequent Facebook, you’d have been well ahead of the pack regarding this event. As a fund raiser for Beyond Blue, Jo and her staff at the Amberlight invited bikes along on Saturday afternoon for a show & shine event in the main street in Lobethal. There were more bikes than I’d seen before in Lobethal. Many more modern bikes and not so many older bikes, but there was no denying the overall quality on display.
The Amberlight hosted a BBQ, one of the neighbours over the road had a gazebo with resident DJ on the front lawn and tables advertising the Cafe Racer club and the upcoming Poker Run were also on display. Bikers of all ages and descriptions were in attendance ensuring an excellent cross section across the motorcycling community.
A pastor from the Longriders club gave a blessing for the bikes & riders as well as calling for a a minutes silence in remembrance of those who passed away on local roads in the past. Trophies were presented for a number of categories. Noted trophy winners included :- Lorenz Klass winner of Best LAMS bike for his Honda Sky Ace which was on the Yankalilla run last month, as well as yours truly, winner of the Best Euro bike for my BSA A10SR. The only BSA as well as the oldest bike present.
Well done to Jo and the Amberlight staff for putting on the show and to all the riders for turning up. Keep your eye on the Ride to Review facebook public group for future events.
