Australia's chopper rider network...


 

 ride my chop cos I dig the   rush

Of the wind on my face

And my motorís vibes.

I ride my chop cos I love the sound

Of my open slash cuts

And my tires on the road.

I ride my chop cos I forget

The dayís hassles

And clear my brain.

I ride my chop cos it takes me away

To another world

Where Iím king for the day.

I ride my chop cos it means to me

Iím my own man

And Iím wheeling free.

If you donít understand, thatís cool. You see,

I ride my chop

Cos itís part of me.

Coming... 

2013... (To be updated in the next few days)

JNovember 3rd... Annual Chopper Muster

 Meet 10am at cement pine trees at top of Cross Road. Ride through Eastern Adelaide Hills and then south to Prof's Lodge at Willunga for BBQ.   See SA Annual Events for more info...

November 10th... Gawler Motorcycle only Swap Meet

 Meet at swap meet and then leave around 11am for a ride to Tanunda and back through Eden Valley etc

November 13th Wed... 1st Summer Midnight Ride...

Meet Vilies Cafe 8pm, Route to be decided.  Finish at Pancake Kitchen 11.30  Bikes are parked at Pancake Kitchen's front door by prior arrangement.  This is a great night of cool summer evening riding... and very nostalgic to many of us who did this sort of thing most weekends when it was just us and our bikes.  All the coffee shops, hamburger joints and donut caravans are closed now, but starting at Villies and then finally finishing at The Pancake Kitchen which has never closed since it opened in the early seventies is still an experience... the younger blokes love it as much as us older guys.

December...

to be arranged 

 


Other possible events...

 Chopper shed nights have gone into recess, but a number of members would like to see them resurrected.  Give Prof a call if you want to get these week night (once every one to two months) events up and running again. 

 WA Ride sometime near future...

Two plus weeks. Purpose is to meet up with WA members, there'll be a couple of events on the weekend.  We'll take a direct route over and those who want to can take their time seeing the sights on the way back.  Blokes we know did this trip more than once in the 70's when the road was bull dust and wombat holes... and they did it on 60's/70's bikes.

 Let's see a bunch of 60's-80's choppers going over this time.  It will be a breeze compared with 35 years ago, but still a trip to remember... roadside camping, no fancy stuff and no backup.  Who's game?  A number of the WA guys will ride out to meet us and some of the SA guys who can't get enough time off will accompany us to Tumby.

 


SA Annual Events...

SA Chopper 2013 Muster... Sunday Nov 3rd...

  Build that chop...

   Be it long and lean or low and mean,

      High in the head or low instead,

   Rigid, swing arm, plunger heel...

      Anything to give that chopper feel.

 

   Stretch and rake just oozes class.

      Chrome, alloy, classy paint job, what a blast.  

Harley, Italian, Jap or Brit,    

    When itís fully chopped itíll fit.

 

   Planned in the kitchen, built in the shed,

      You spin your spanners, while your ladyís abed.

   Itís a part of you, not some mega-buck clone.

      Your chop is best Ďcos itís built at home.

   A stocker? No way! That ainít cool...

      Itís over real chops that the chickies drool.

   So you build your chop though itís not all fun.

      You sweat and swear Ďtil you get it done.

 

   Finished! Your baby's a beaut and tracks real sweet

      Roar of exhaust, stretched out feet,

   Riding your chopper come what may,

      Wind in your face; you're King for the dayÖ
