Ride Leader: Greg Gleason 0424 956 078 replacing Steve Bailes

Steve was planning a final run before Christmas from Lilydale to Yea with a break at Broadford. Unfortunately his Goldwing has a problem and has ceased to proceed.

Greg stepped in at the last moment to lead the ride. Starting at Lilydale as before but finishing at Gembrook instead of Yea. Parts of the run be be as planned by Steve with Greg's favourite bits included.

Thanks to Greg for helping us out.

EDIT 22 December by JC  Despite the fact that he "bailed" Steve did turn up in his tin top and provided Christmas Fare  cool   


It was a great fun ride yesterday, apart from a little bit of group split!!  On reflection, I think the problems all started with my failure to corner mark at the toilets in Kinglake, because I assumed everyone knew where I was going.  I then compounded it by assuming Brian would catch up quicker than he did (I should have stopped in West Bridge Road at the Melba Hwy intersection until I saw that little yellow headlight!!)  Then others assumed we'd lost Tail End Charlie!
Moral of story and lesson I learned? - never assume anything - always stick strictly to the corner marking system!  Mark every corner where the track deviates and/or is ambiguous and keep it marked until Tail End Charlie finds you.
