Eudunda Old Bike Show n’ Shine, Sunday 11th November

12 Nov

It was a beautiful cool 8am ride straight up an empty South Rd, and NO roadworks believe it or not, onto the smooth Northern Expressway on my new bike.

My first outing as a COMCC member to the Eudunda Remembrance Old Bike Show n’ Shine and no one else showed up. Thank you, for not attending, as I took out the trophy for Best European Bike!
Best European 1977 BMW R100/7
Nipper had set up his AJS marquee stand with 2 bikes and a leather clad dummy or was that me? Only 12 bikes showed up but they were beauties.
Trophy winners were:
Best American 1972 FLH Electra Glide
Best Japanese 1983 Yamaha Ténéré XT600
Best Oldest 1935 BSA 500cc
Most Unusual 1960 Puch 250cc
Best British 1968 Velocette Venom Thruxton

Thank you to Steve Richter for organising the day and the lovely lunch by the Eudunda ladies group. If one more club member came, we would have taken the best represented club trophy. Maybe next year.

The only mishap on the way home was my favourite old Rossi’s gave up on me.

Lane Filtering

24 Jan

Several people have been asking about lane filtering on South Australia roads. What is lane filtering? Are motorcyclists allowed to lane filter? When is it safe to do so? Here is a video which appears on the DPTI South Australia website. This is the official DPTI version, so it may be treated as gospel.
