Ride Day - 10th Feb 08

Hepburn Springs was the destination for last Sundays ride. It was great to see a couple of new RATs coming along with David on the Speedmaster and Jason & Zoe on the Thruxton. All up there were 6 bikes and Warren brought along the daddy of them all - the Rocket III.
The ride up through the Brisbane Ranges is always awesome and this was no exception (even better when we saw the cop patrol car heading in the opposite direction!)- we were a bit chilled when we reached the bakery in Ballan - the coffee felt good to warm the hands as well as going down well with the famous Ballan apple cake - Ollie recommended it years ago and its still as good as ever! Zoe needed a bit of time to get the feeling back in her hands!
David took off back to Geelong and we all continued on the cruise to Hepburn Springs via Blackwood, Trentham & Daylesford. Beautiful country out there - just like riding through the old forests in England.
We all caught up over lunch & a bloke pulled up on restored Triumph 650 twin - sounded great - if only Leigh had been there to ask all the questions!
The lunch at the pub was huge and it was difficult staying awake on the way home - but it was a good cruise back to Geelong.

The meeting at the Max was a big success so the next one's going to be there as well - see you there on Thursday 28th Feb.
