An impressive roll up for both Black Bears and Brown Bears despite the mizzle on their different pathways to Bencubbin.

The Brown Bears commandeered one of the lanes at the Caltex Stratton to keep their camping gear dry

Image

The Black Bears were augmented with further arrivals the Bindoon Bakehaus and left with their personal rain cloud that followed them almost to Calingiri. Guy had some electrical problems that split the group but eventually got the Black Bomber firing on two cylinders. The group were briefly together again at Wongan Hills before splitting again with both heading to Cadoux and Koorda.

More motorcyclists joined the group at Koorda before heading to Bencubbin.

Ride leader, Cookie, assembling the group for the final push from Koorda to Bencubbin.

The faithful sled refused to stop and had to be forcibly retired in Wyalkatchem

A good hit-out enjoyed by myself . Any more rain and I wouldn't of got away with all my gortex liners being left at home. :roll:
Sincere appreciation to all who marshalled and organised the various routes and rides.
Thanks to all for your company and fellowship.

Very impressive line up.

Good to catch up and meet some of the ranga dynasty.

Sorry to hear that the black bomber had to retire. Public transport from Wylie is not that flash so hopefully Guy made it home OK.

Thank you to all participants, we had a ball, cool weather, loads of bikes combined with a country show, fellowship, musician, band, fireworks and of course an overnight camp.

Substantial breakfast this morning before splitting into 3 main groups to tackle the leisurely run back towards the metro, groups changed several times as we crossed paths at Wylie, Dowerin, Meckering and Quellington, managed to catch up with some friends on the way :)
