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.
to be arranged
Other possible events...
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
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.

Stretch and rake just
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,
spin your spanners, while your ladyís abed.
Itís a part of you, not
some mega-buck clone.
chop is best Ďcos itís built at home.
A stocker? No way! That
over real chops that the chickies drool.
So you build your chop
though itís not all fun.
sweat and swear Ďtil you get it done.
Finished! Your baby's a
beaut and tracks real sweet
of exhaust, stretched out feet,
Riding your chopper come
in your face; you're King for the dayÖ
