SABERS Mark's Magical not so early Breakfast Ride 20160619

Written by Fred Horvath.

Four riders including a visitor and one pillion made another cold start from Prospect.  Andre had come all the way up from Victor Harbor in ordinary weather...he made good use of the comfort features on the big Victory...heated seat and grips.

Mark took us up Greenhill Road which was less than pleasant...wet & cold. Then on through Summertown, Uraidla and Balhannah to Hahndorf.  And through Echunga, Meadows and the popular Bull Creek Road (mostly dry) to Ashbourne where we were met by Paul & Carol plus two visiting Ulysses riders with a pillion and Steve by car.

We waded through the awesome breakfasts offered by the Greenman Inn...would be hard to leave here with any hunger left.

Nangkita Road took us to Mount Compass where a corner marshalling oopsie split the group for a little while.  Once regrouped we followed Mark along Pages Flat Road and skirted Myponga to ride over the reservoir wall.  Then down into Carrickalinga along Forktree Road with it's magnificent views.

Normanville, Lady Bay, Second Valley and Rapid Bay were soon behind as we pulled up in Delamere to fuel the bikes with smaller tanks.

Fortunately there was little wind along Range Road so despite a cold run it was very enjoyable.  Our new Ulysses friends peeled off along here while we continued on down into Victor Harbor for end of ride at the Boulevard Café on the Lake.  Great coffee and service as always here.

Thanks Mark for a lovely long day along some of our favourite roads...lucky for us the wind was low and the rain stayed away.

Good day, Fred
