Saturday 6 December run to Lyndoch

14 Dec

What a glorious early Summer’s day! A minor hiccup at the designated Civic Park TTP meeting place which was roped off for a Christmas Carols night that evening. In fact the car park was almost full of portable toilets. We were directed by a toilet security guard  to use the adjacent council car park.

After a minor wait for some late comers the final role call was:-

Historic bikes

Wayne Lawson 1973 Triumph T140V

Ed Lowrey 1975 BMW R90S

Kym Miller 1977 Yamaha TT500

George Elovaris 1981 BMW R65

Charles Oliver 1967 Triumph T120R

Bob Cole 1983 Honda CB1100F

David Saint 1975 Suzuki GT750

Alan Kernich 1985 BMW R80


Modern Classics

Geoff Pascol 2012 Bimota 3D

Louis Peilschmidt Honda VF750C

Campbell Blaney 2001 Yamaha FZR

Ron Ritter 2011 Kawasaki W800

Craig McDonald 2008 Yamaha TDM

Wayne Williams 2008 Yamaha XVS 650

In a first, for me anyhow, the historic bikes (8) outnumbered the modern classics (6)!

We set off on an uneventful cruise along North East Road to Mount Pleasant Bakery for morning tea. Soon after this,  Bob and Ron had to curtail their fun and head home for other duties. The rest of us headed off around a large sweep taking in Springton, Eden Valley and Angaston. Here your leader had to resort to map reading to get the group to the Kapunda – Truro road WITHOUT VENTURING ON TO THE DIRT!

Continuing on through Kapunda, Greenock, Seppeltsfield, Marananga and down the very crowded Tanunda main street to finally halt at the Lyndoch Bakery for a very pleasant and relaxed lunch.

From here most people found  their own way home to wherever. My small group headed off through Williamstown, Chain of Ponds and down the Gorge Road back to the city. About 220km all up for the trip.

Alan Kernich, Club Captain
