Geelong 3rd Sunday Ride Report, 20 December

Fine cool weather greeted 7 riders and one guest for the last ride for 2020 (a year to forget).  I have not been on many club rides this year so  it was great  to get the T140 out for a gallop. Stan Rogers led the way with Graeme Wilson as T. E. C, with those little led lights on his machine makes corner marking a lot easier.

Out through Ceres we went, onto Considines Rd to Moriac, but alas my machine stopped around the back of Lake Wurdie Buloc. With a lack of sparks I was going nowhere. The rest of the lads continued on to Deans Marsh and Lorne then back to Stans place for coffee, party pies and cake, along with another “firing ” of his small cannon. From all reports it was a great ride.

After waiting for my total care tow truck to arrive all I got was phone calls to say it was on the way. After a considerable time of waiting and no truck I rang Ron Study and he came and picked me up.

P.S. a new battery and the T140 burst back to life.
