It’s Sunday morning; for those of us that are taking our earlies, we’re pumped, excited full of enthusiasm, until we looked out the window and see it is drizzling. However, nothing was going to put us off taking our prized earlies out.
We arrived at the club rooms around 9.15am, low and behold 4 cars are already there. Jason and Janine arrive shortly after telling us that departure time was 10.00am for the Naked Racer. By 9.30am we had 9 earlies eagerly waiting to depart. It was a quick 20min drive to Cheltenham, raining, yes. We all had smiles on our dials. When we arrived, there were 2 other earlies to greet us.
Full credit to Naked Racer for setting up a long table for us, some had breakfast others just had a drink. We walked around looking at all the fantastic bikes, old and new, as well as other vintage paraphernalia. Great to catch up with members for a chit chat, Castlemaine and the President’s run in June, being the hot topics.
Jason, Janine and Allen Newsome were the first to leave. Rod Grummitt then asked how many of us were going to Fat Bobs. 10 minute drive for lunch. 9 earlies went to this quirky place. Food was good, service was excellent.
As we walked in, we saw a blackboard; if we register our earlies, we could win the car of the week which came with a $75.00 food voucher. Everyone was having a good time, and unfortunately it ended all too soon. We said our goodbyes smiling as we got into our earlies and started them up. God, I love my life.
A big thanks to all that came, look forward to our next run in April to Castlemaine.
Footnote. I won car of the week and $75.00 food voucher; I have till 21/4/21 to use it.
