Eight people, five bikes, two Spyders.

Sue went with Gary Gurtner as her bike is still getting the dents knocked out after an altercation with an errant motorist.

Oscar led the way to The Rock, Tootool, Lockhart, and Urana, in fog all the way to Tootool, with sunshine after that.

The merry bunch arrived at Urana about 11.30am and decided to go to Corowa for lunch.

However, when they hit the highway decided to turn left and went to Howlong Bakery for lunch instead.

Pies seemed to be the order of the day for lunch, and of course, a bee sting for Thommo, Sue and Gino shared a bee sting.

After lunch and gossip those that needed to fuelled up and headed for home via Walbundrie, Culcairn and Uranquinty.

Farewells were said at Quinty and everyone went home after a great day out in the winter sun.

Christmas in July will be at the Red Steer on Sunday, July 7, with the ride leaving Maccas at the usual time to arrive in time for lunch at 12.30pm.

David Schoer from the MIA group came to our meeting on Tuesday night to tell us about the program for the Tri-Branch on September 6-7-8.

Accommodation at the Lake Talbot Tourist Park in Narrandera, with a program of places to see in Leeton on Saturday, BBQ lunch at the Antiques With Oil Leaks and dinner Saturday night in Narrandera.

I have been in Sydney for the past 10 days and I have never seen so many scooters in one place at one time, almost like Asia and thereabouts.

Enjoy the ride while you can in the Winter weather and be careful of black ice, particularly in the hill country.

See you on the road sometime.
