Report on Seymour Ride

Fathers’ Day Ride to Seymour 1 September 2013

First I would like to thank Rob McCormack for volunteering and doing his first effort at ride leading on Fathers’ Day.  His efforts were appreciated by the many people who turned up at Kalkallo for the ride in beautiful weather conditions and there was a great mix of both familiar and newer faces.    

After briefings we set off with Rob leading on his Yamaha and with Pat doing Tail End duties on his red Harley.   Stefan was there on his club plated BMW, Chris and Sally on their Ducatis, Terry and Roger on their Moto Guzzis, Garry and partner on the Victory and Mike on his VFR1200 certainly added to the variety of machines and faces.  BMW were represented by Doug, Jack and Samuel.   Harry, Max and Les showed the flag for Suzuki and Andrew, Bob Tate, Martin and I showed the flag for Honda.     

We headed north to Wallan and then across some lovely open gorge country to Romsey before heading north again through Lancefield an on through forest and farming areas peppered with large granite outcrops along sweeping roads towards Pyalong  before looping south again (along a lovely little road I had never previously enjoyed) to Tallarook where we stopped for morning tea.

After enjoying some camaraderie and refreshment in the picnic area we set off again through Trawool and on towards Yea along the beautiful curves of the Goulburn Highway with views to the river.   Traffic was a bit busy along here and the lack of overtaking places ensured we rode at a sensible pace and enjoyed the scenery.  Just before Yea we turned north along the Ghin Ghin Road through Highlands and looped back to Seymour and entered town coming in past the Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk and memorials.   We then adjourned for lunch in the park between the river and the pub – How convenient was that?       

It was obviously a well planned and researched ride & enjoyed by all who attended.    Great roads and great company - Rob, Thank you and well done!
