6-7 Oc­to­ber, 2018 – Wagga Wagga, NSW

A healthy turnout of mo­tor­cy­cles, just on 100, from all eras graced the Apex car park on the side of Lake Al­bert in per­fect weather for the much-an­tic­i­pated an­nual ride through the Rive­rina coun­try­side. Judg­ing took place from 8.45 am be­fore the cor­ner mar­shals de­parted, fol­lowed at 10am by a long wave of bikes. There were two rides, the long one head­ing north­east through beau­ti­ful mixed farm­ing coun­try. De­spite the re­lent­less drought, this area is fair­ing bet­ter than other parts of NSW and it was good to see bud­ding canola crops and healthy calves and lambs on the ground. Fol­low­ing a fuel stop at Ade­long, an ex­cel­lent run with long sweep­ing cor­ners through the pine forests to the lunch stop at Rose­wood was en­joyed by all and then it was back to Apex Park, a dis­tance of 243km. The shorter ride 77km headed to the vil­lage of Book Book where lunch was served in the hall then re­turn­ing to Apex Park. Satur­day night’s din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tion of awards took place at the Wagga Wagga Com­mer­cial Club. An­other bril­liant sunny day dawned on Sun­day for a com­bined ride to the his­toric town of Coola­mon, with its her­itage-listed main street which the towns folk are clearly proud of. It was a great week­end of rid­ing with good friends and one that’s def­i­nitely on the list for the fu­ture.

Not one but three BSAs fit­ted with V-twin JAP en­gines sparkle in the sun­shine be­side Lake Al­bert.
