Another perfect day for a ride.
Today we had 2 classic and 15 modern bikes, one with pillion, ready for the ride to Mannum. First stop was the Throttle Shed at One Tree Hill ,but unfortunately the Triumph Riders beat us there so the place was packed.No problem,some of us went to the shop down the road for our morning coffee and we were ready to go.
Next problem was as we were leaving Roger headed for home, and some riders followed him instead of looking for corner markers, then one of our riders decided to ride off the road and down a bank.No injuries, well maybe his pride, so while we waited for everyone to catch up and regroup we decided to shorten the route to make up some time. Finally we were on our way to Mannum.
After lunch and chat on the banks of the mighty Murray it’s time to refuel the bikes and back on the road to Adelaide. An uneventful ride except for being stuck behind a truck and trailer filled with cattle. Don’t you just love that smell. Still it’s always a good day to be out riding with friends. I made it home after 323kms of very enjoyable riding.
