This weekend we took Olga out for her final test run before being sent overseas. To her credit she behaved perfectly. We breathed a collective sigh of relief, I can tell you.
The weather was just ideal for motorcycling and we travelled through some lovely countryside.
There was a terrific variety of old bikes. This sidecar was gorgeous and won the section. It was being ridden by the owner’s daughter.
Here us a closeup.
There was a good roll up of side cars, which was good to see.
Lunch was at the delightful village of Carcoar. There are some lovely old buildings there.
However, it is rather sleepy on a Saturday afternoon.
It was hard to make a decision as to which bikes were the best.
Our mate Norm won a trophy with his lovely old Velocette.
The day was completed with a yummy dinner, eaten outdoors as the evening was so lovely. The rally is based at the Scout Camp at Lake Canobolas and we camped overnight.
Today, after we returned home, I actually did some sewing. The first for the month, which is a bit sad.
I sewed some more badges onto Mick’s leather bike vest. Some of these have been waiting to be sewn on since 2008!!! You can’t rush into these things.
It isn’t my favourite type of sewing and is a bit hard on my machine, but the job is done, in time to send the vest with the bike in a fortnight.
I’ll now see if I can finish some other little thing so I can put in on my side bar for the end of the month.
