Illawarra Clas­sic MCC Red Scarf Rally

Old Bike Australasia - - RALLY REPORTS RED SCARF - Re­port and pho­tos John Dav­i­son and Kris Min­ter

10-11 March 2018 – Kiama NSW

The 22nd run­ning of the rally at­tracted 69 rid­ers and 31 part­ners/guests. Ron Parker led Satur­day’s long ride, via the Scenic Cam­be­warra Moun­tain, while John Dav­i­son led short ride, via the Shoal­haven River, both stop­ping for lunch at Bo­maderry. The re­turn was via Coolan­gatta & Ger­roa. All in all it was a very pleas­ant day, al­beit we were light on for mar­shalls, which caused a few mi­nor hic­cups! The Rally Din­ner was held at the Kiama Bowl­ing Club, where we had 56 in at­ten­dance. Guest speaker Steve Skin­ner gave us a very in­ter­est­ing talk on Mo­tor­cy­cling NZ in the seven­ties, with pre­sen­ta­tion of tro­phies and the raf­fles draw. Sun­day’s ride was to the foot of Jam­beroo Pass, then back to Yal­lah via Mar­shall Mount, where re­fresh­ments were had at the Yal­lah Road House. Some rid­ers con­tin­ued on to Stan­well Park Tops Bald Hill, and the oth­ers re­turned to Kiama. It was a ster­ling re­sult with the em­pha­sis on 30-year-old plus ma­chines.
