All with varying degrees of permission from wives. […]

So Whose Really Running This Show? A Lazy one to Rylstone.

Controversial? Certainly, but with a decreasing number of weekend rides and some distances between overnighters there was always going to be trouble.

North Coast

Madge and I packed our winter woolies, donned multiple layers and headed north. First stop was Gloucester where a hot drink at The Roadwarriors Cafe was useful in warming the cockles of the heart.

Happy With That. Victoria: January 2014.

The weather was a bit dour on departure and drizzly rain accompanied us (nice use of personification giving a sense of friendly comradeship with the elements) all the way […]
