Geelong Ride Report, 6 Aug

The weather forecast was cold but no rain on the horizon saw four riders including myself at our rendezvous point.

Just as we were about the head of on our way Marks Tiger didn’t want to start: after a quick analysis we found the fuel bowl screws had come loose.

Surprisingly none of us had a Phillips screwdriver so finger tight we made a dash to Rod Dutton’s home that was only a few kilometers up the road.

With all bikes running perfect we headed of tour destination the Birregurra General Store.

Out through Moriac and the Cape Otway Road the traffic was very quiet apart from a speed camera parked on the side of the road.

Rodney had just finished overtaking one of us; he saw the car and was de-accelerating before he could have been picked up by the camera on the rear of the car. (Not saying Rod was speeding at all, but how many people are people caught out when only going over the limit for a very short distance of time or travel.)

We sat outside of the General Store in the North facing sun and enjoyed each other’s banter, re assuring Rod that there was only a speed camera on the rear of the car.

Not a big ride but very enjoyable.

Ron Study.
