Splish Splash, I was having a bath......
« on: 13.03. 2019 08:25 »
......last Saturday at the Bunbury Two Day.
It wasn't supposed to be raining in the South West of WA in early March!
However, Sunday dawned fine and the final 100 km of riding was dry.

Three Forum members participated (Peter In Aus, Gavin, and myself), along with my lifelong friend Mario from the goldfields (Kalgoorlie).

Gavin had a hiccup on the Saturday afternoon, but I will leave it to him to describe if he wants to.

Now the four of us are gearing up for Orabandon 2019 (6th - 7th December).

Hope you enjoy the pics.

“But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.” – Carl Sagan

Great photos and jokes. Look forward to finding time to look at them all. Looks to have been an amazing collection of machinery, hopefully mostly ridden. *good3* *beer*

Thanks Richard for the accolade. It was a bit wet on Saturday, I believe it was the first time it has rained in the history of the 2 day, but I did not get wet I was under the umbrella at the check points. *smile*
Thanks for putting up all those pic they are just the best. *beer*
