Eight for coffee at Mojos and eight on the ride - a full card. B5 had suggested Corrigin a few Thursday’s ago so when mentioned the always accepting group said yes why not. So I lead Nurzo, Eddy, Nick, Ross, DFS, Robbie with B5 as rear gunner, out of Mundaring to the Lakes for forgotten fuel replenishment.
Followed the GSH to York then headed to Quairading prior to turning South to Corrigin. As expected temperatures starting to rise to early 30’s with the countryside looking very dry. Arrived at Corrigin just prior to midday and managed to find a secluded table in the Mallee Tree Cafe. The onslaught of 8 great looking guys required the one lady to call for reinforcements, so we had to wait a little longer than usual to receive our orders. In the meantime Cascade Ginger Beer and Original Lemonade were the favourite drinks. All subjects discussed and dissected.
The group decided back via Brookton sounded good except B5 who just to be different decided to head towards Collie. So 7 headed to Brookton with Nurzo rear gunner. The group continued to disintegrate at Brookton with Robbie heading to Pingelly so it was final hug and kisses for the group with every man to do his own thing.
So a 450 km ride with max temp 37 seen out in the Wheatbelt.
Thanks all for great group riding and super company, plus special mentions for B5 and Nurzo for TEC duties.

The R1200GS was purring along and as I was thoroughly enjoying the ride to Corrigin so decided to extend it a bit and come home via collie. The route to Collie was selected via the GPS as the fastest. It went through Yealering, Wickepin, Narrogin, Williams. Some interesting road with great bends.

After refuelling in Collie as I was still enjoying the ride so decided to deviated down past Wellington Dam and out via River, Pile and Henty Roads up to Burekup.
After the open wheatbelt country with wide sweeping bends the Wellington Dam roads provided a stark contrast with green forests and tighter bends.
Then it was home via the South Western Highway. A short break in Byford just for a stretch and mental break before hitting the traffic.

Overall a round trip of 670kms. Traffic even on the SWHwy was light only slightly increasing along Tonkin Hwy to home.
