Ride Report:

Was a cool crisp morning but the coffee shop was busy with 14 bikes arriving for breakfast on this Pesach morning. We headed out at about 9.20am along the Dingley Bypass road all the way past Dandenong and into Cranbourne. A stop at Tooradin so Volvi could fress. Then I hit a dirt road after looking for another way to Lang Lang. Back to the highway and the normal Lang Lang turnoff, through Poowong and eventually into Warrugul for a lunch stop.

Home via Nar Nar Goon for most while others opted to take the direct freeway rout. I peeled off the M1 at Police Rd. to go to the Spingvale Cemetery (mother's Yortseit soon). Was a very pleasant day, good to see a large group attending. A new rider Justin Davis turned up and came along on his Harley.
