Motorcycling is Magic

Or so the bumper sticker says.

A group of us rode up to Wellington on Sunday for the Annual Motorcycle Awareness Week ride.  There was a good roll up, with the street being lined with  bikes and quite a few stalls in the park.

We had a bit of a wander around checking out the bikes. 

There were big ones and little ones.

Ratty ones. Don’t you just love the graphics.  They are done in texta.

Shiny ones.  This is the same model as Olga, only in pristine original condition.

We were the only sidecar there. Snubby created quite a bit of interest.

After lunch we took the long way home, via Yeoval and Cumnock, checking out all the quirky bicycle sculptures along the way.

We stopped in Cumnock for an ice cream.

It was a lovely day spent with good friends and we also caught up with lots of people we know, from right across the central west of the state, that we have got to know through motorcycling.  You couldn’t get a nicer bunch.
