If you haven't ridden much with the club in 2016 now is a good opportunity before the year is out, make Dec-11 the event, everyone welcome.

Pilots have said they should be able to offer joy flights at their cost price again this year.

Ride Report:

it was threatening to drizzle at the cafe but cleared into a perfect day.

There was a tremendous turnout to the ride, 17 bikes!  In order L-R of the group photo: bikes:  mark (kwaka), me (aprilia), Josh( suz), Graham (GS), Rod + friend (busa), Mike (bmw), John( tiger), dave (honda), avi (fjr), sol + pauline (duc), volvi (harley), Jeff (tiger), Peter (gs), Sam (tenere), Howie (harley), Matti + Pillion( gs), Barry( xjr)

Plane : Leon & braham,   Plane : Joel and Ivan

Bikes arrived pretty much a draw with Joel just coming thru the gate to the apron.

Leon had problems with an engine cowling catch so was delayed 5 mins (one of the few problems i've never had with the caponord!)

a few went up for joy flights.  Noone was interested in the planned onward ride to poowong, warrigul,  so we rode back in small groups.  Home by 1pm.
