Got caught in snow at Black Springs.12 hours to Broken Hill on a bike, Mik does it in 2 days of 600 kms per day. Highlands to Hay or Cobar and then to Broken Hill. Mik’s trumpy has 160000 kms on it.

New Bikes/Old Bikes/Restos:

Greg sold his 1963 BMW. The buyer wanted to ride it home, said it had a good ‘vibe’. Got a permit and was followed by a lady, he had a similar bike in ’74. Wanted an old bike. Forgot his bike gloves so bought a pair of gardening gloves from Aldi. Saturday night Greg gets a text from buyer: Very happy with the bike, got home to Lockhart, bought new leather gloves along the way, 600km trip. Greg felt it was a good example of stepping outside your comfort zone. Greg also reported on his trail bike that he discovered was rebirthed. Police are unable to find any details about his bike. Will go to court to argue his case for keeping the bike.

Christmas Function:

  • Locked in for Sunday December 10th

  • Conversation re venue. Rod: breakfast at Schmokin’ or lunchtime carvery at Schmokin’.

  • Rod called for other ideas/ venues.

  • Kevin: Dormey House baked dinner $25 per head. Not overly encouraged by venue. Bundanoon Club nice place but expensive $26 hamburger, Barrumundi chips $44. Noe believes Schmokin’ is the go.

  • Mik D supports Schmokin and it has nothing to do with him living at Berrima.

  • Rod Moved we do breakfast on December 10 at Scmokin’, 9.00pm and ride afterwards. Seconded by Paul and passed unanimously.

General Business:

Cobbler

  • Mik D recommends Highlands Cobbler Valentinos Antoniou. 0426724748

  • www.highlandscobbler.com.au email: vck@highlandscobbler.com.au

Number Plate Surrounds

  • Denis has suggested we get club number plate surrounds, members expressed interest, perhaps club would subsidise part of cost. Historic plate size and normal plate size.

Keyrings

  • See Rob Hannah

Feedback on first aid for motorcyclists

  • Very worthwhile course, enjoyable as well as informative.

  • Opened people’s eyes to the needs of a motorcycle accident.

  • Possibly offer course again in 12 months time.

  • Rob spoke about how members need to let others know of medical conditions that could effect them.

  • Kevin said excellent presenters, suggested letter to club thanking them for the room

  • Rod thanked them in person.

Other Business:

  • Pat Rowley: Re membership form, should we put on form disclosure of medical issues? Optional but could be valuable.

  • Reiterated the need for ride planning, first aid kit, lead rider, destination, meetup points etc. Contact number, check if every rider arrived home. We’re better than we used to be at ride protocol.

  • Rod spoke about a ‘club grants application’ which allows us free use of the club. An initiative of NSW Clubs.


Meeting Closed: 7:56pm. Next Meeting 09/10/23.
