When one Bakery is not enough

Postby Bozo » Sun Jul 30, 2017 5:15 pm

A massive roll up at Catalanos with a few members returning from their hibernation in the north.

A lot of interesting bikes and some that had not been seen for a while.

Eleven headed south including HRG on a brand new Rnine T and Colin on his 1200 GSA LC DR#. BillB, Wightman, Dinga, Goldie, Peter, Davidii, Rob, Mackerel Eddie and Bozo comprised the balance.

A quick run down Tonkin Highway, Kargotich Road, Lowlands Road, Rapids Road, Karnup Road, Punrak Road and Hopelands Road and Corio Road got us to Pinjarra. By this time Dinga and Wightman had consciously abandoned the ride. The road side drains were like a linear lake from all the rain but the roads were generally dry with a clear sky.

Turning west we took Pinjarra Road and a deviation through Wanjeep Street and Cooodanup Drive to avoid roadworks with Goldie taking the initiative and safely leading the group through that challenging suburb. Nine arrived at the Miami Bakehouse safely shepherded by His Royal NineTness. BillB, Colin and Goldie thought one bakery was enough and headed home, for Goldie it was just around the corner. The balance meandered around Estuary Drive and Southern Estuary Drive to Lake Clifton Road before crossing Forrest Highway at Dorsett Road. The road has recently been realigned and partially resurfaced. We turned off on Gibbings Road and took Coolup South Road to Coolup. Crossing the South West Highway we took a loop on Coolup East Road and Burnside Road before returning on the Pinjarra Wiiliams Road to Pinjarra. A second bakery stop before heading home along Paterson Road, Corio Road and Lakes Road for fuel stop at North Dandalup. Along South West Highway to end the ride at Byford.

A stunning day for a ride with clouds only arriving late in the day. Thanks to His Royal NineTness for running tail end Charlie duties.

Des Renford used to go into the Channel heavily insulated, not all of us have had that luxury.

Colin

Des was attracted to deep water, liked to almost be completely submerged and despite his preparation he would occasionally emerge completely shot and unable to go on.
