Ride to Maryanne and Hank Tigges’ home at Scarsdale

Submitted by John_Cook on Mon, 28/08/2017 - 4:55pm

Maryanne and Hank had very kindly offered to host lunch at their rural property south of Ballarat at the conclusion of the branch ride on Sunday, 27 August 2017

The late Ron Blomley had offered to lead the ride and had actually done a 400 kilometre reconnaissance on Sunday 20 August in preparation.   Unfortunately Ron passed away (at home) the very next day and this ride morphed into a tribute / farewell ride in Ron’s memory.  Our branch president Greg Rees took over as ride leader.

Ride to Yarck 20 August 2017

A small but very willing group ignored the recent wet weather and overnight cold and assembled at Kalkallo for Vince’s ride to Yarck and we were glad we did.   The weather was clear and calm which made it perfect for riding.   Ian and Richard from Macedon Ranges joined us to make a total group of eight.  Rumour has it a couple of “kiwis” added to the diversity of attendees and Richard volunteered to do tail end duties.  Bike brand representation was much smaller than usual but still very interesting; BMW was represented by two K1600 GTs and a current 1200GS, Yamaha was represented
