Guess who no.2 ?

If you can’t guess who this is – read on, all will be revealed.

Route 66 Charity Bike Ride

Back in early October a few of the Emerald riders set of for Blackwater Social Riders Club. The occassion was their annual charity poker run. Riders gather at either Rockhampton or Clermont, and head back to Blackwater, collecting cards for their poker hand at various checkpoints (aka pubs) along the way.

Marc and I joined the group heading to Rocky – about 20. What a surprise to find 80 bikes already at Rocky when we got there. A pleasant group ride back to Blackwater just in time to meet about 30 riders coming from the opposite direction. A good night was had by all – I swagged over.

Route 66 charity ride 2009

Last Friday night Marc and I went to their monthly meeting. As a result of that charity ride $5,000.00 was donated to worthy causes in the Blackwater area. Him and I are now members of the club.

Changes on the 2 wheel front.

Things have changed a little on my motorbike front. Gone is the Honda and in its place is a big cruiser.

The bike is a 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager. 1700cc, 6 speed, belt-drive, cruise control (which I love already), ABS brakes, proportional braking, radio with Ipod connection, trip computer, 2 glove boxes, top box and panniers, etc. Not the performance of the Honda, but way more comfortable for me to ride.

The cruiser is a whole lot more comfortable for me and Jan. Yes, she came for a ride with the crew last Sunday and then we had our customary “new bike bbq”  – the day after I picked it up from Rocky. And today we went for a ride on our own out to the gem fields. Had lunch at the Anakie pub and cruised our way back home.

Oh, if you haven’t figured it out by now, Guess who no.2 is Jan. She is  rigged out with her own riders jacket, gloves and helmet. She is starting to enjoy the armchair ride that the pillion gets on this bike.
