Sunday ride report, 15 Sept 2019

A humid morning with the threat of afternoon rain had me a little worried about the day. 7 starters and 3 guest riders met at Waurn Ponds for the short trip out to the You Yangs start point. On arrival the Melbourne crew were already there swelling the numbers to 16 machines and 3 lady…

Northern Region Midweek ride report, 20 Aug 2019

I placed my hand deep into my bag of tricks, thus producing a fairly good day for this time during winter. With hail falling yesterday and rain due tomorrow I was glad to see the forecast of cool, showers falling in the southern suburbs with fair winds. I would except that on any ride day…

A Visit to Brumby’s Baby The idea for this ride was to incorporate a tour of the Victorian Desalination Plant in Wonthaggi with some riding to & from the tour, in the beautiful rolling hills of West Gippsland. Mr BOM didn’t promise us a very favourable day weather wise, but a study of the Wave…

The Inaugural Bellarine Bash, 19-21 July 2019

Day 1 – Friday 19th of July The club’s second rally for the year should be re-named the Bellarine ‘Bask’ rather than ‘Bash’! Being the mid-winter rally most of us were prepared for a cold and potentially wet weekend. Now I don’t know if our lead for the weekend Andy Symons had sacrificed a few…

Southern Region Midweek ride report, 2nd July 2019

The ride to the start point at Chernside Park was uneventful for me, apart from topping up my fuel, and being around 8 degrees C, with a wind-chill factor around -5 C. (estimate only) Several riders were already there, rubbing their hands to keep warm. At least there was no wind. A few small waterdrops…

CMCCV June Sunday Ride Report – “Bayside Classics”.  23-06-19. Up early with nervous excitement for our first Lead Rider event, I went out to get Thruxty ready and almost couldn’t find the garage in the cold thick mist and fog.  Better get some more clothes on.  The club earned enough Bad Weather Credits last Tuesday…

DESTINATION :  PHEASANT CREEK The forecast for Tuesday 18th June was not going to be kind to us, high chance of showers, rain, and possible hail temperature 12  (old bike ride, I think we need a boat). As Keith and I arrived at the servo no one was there and I could see the grin…

Southern Region Midweek ride report, 4 June 2019

Rain, strong winds and low temperatures had been features of the previous 24 hours so it needed some optimism to set off to the start at Rowville. The sky was slowly clearing as Ride Leader Sam (his last as Club Captain) briefed us on the ride before leading us to the south-east through outer suburbs…

Northern Region Midweek Ride Report, 21st May 2019

On a cool and overcast morning with no prediction of rain twelve club members on ten bikes arrived at the Garden Stop Servo for what we all believe will be a great days riding to Alexandra for lunch. I had to take a second look as a familiar purple Honda of a few years ago…

Sunday Club Ride Report, 19th May 2019

As a retiree, I find it difficult to get out of the nest early during the cooler months of the year.  The weather forecast was dry and I thought  it would be a great opportunity to take my Guzzi out for its first outing with the club. As things would happen, the battery was flat,…
