Follow that Fridge

After the hottest November day on record yesterday part of today's Bozo ride was led by a fridge on the back of a ute. The fifteen strong convoy followed the fridge all the way along Albany Highway, down Bedfordale Hill and in to Byford.

The gathering at Catalanos was very compliant and no bus bays were interfered with or obstructed.

Bike buying from the eastern states was on the menu as was modifying air heads.

A new assembly point for the ride was used to depart for a ride to Dwellingup. The original destination was Beverley but this was quickly scratched when the forecast temperature was 40 degrees.

Bill + Trish, Bolton the wanderer, Ted, Nick, Hugh, Andrew, Wightman, Stoy, Geoff, Nadia, Emperor Eddie, His Royal Griceness, Peter and Bozo headed up the shady scarp roads for a run past Canning Dam. Masses of motorcycles and cyclists were throughout the hills enjoying the cooler weather and it was no surprise to be led by a fridge.

A run up Nettleton Road where we lost Bolton and then a Hiab Truck led exit to Kingsbury Drive. A quick check and His Royal Griceness had scarpered. We lost Nick and Andrew at Del Park Road before we took North Spur to get to Dwellingup to find His Royal Griceness waiting for us. Swift work by Trish got a great table at the Blue Wren.

Hugh, Wightman, Nadia and Geoff separated from the group for free itineraries on the way home. The rest enjoyed a smooth run through Nanga Brook and Nanga Brook Road to Waroona. Home via Patterson Road, Corio Road, Hopeland Road and Lightbody Road.

A rare wave from a Harley Rider turned out to be Frank's charity ride group returning from Yarloop.

Great to have an enthusiastic group out for a ride on a comfortable weather day.

Thanks to Peter for running tail end Charlie duties.
