Melrose Overnighter 2012

on .

What a great turn out we had with 23 bikes leaving the Caltex Woolworths at Munno Para. The weather was a bit overcast but no wind or rain.

After a quick stop at Tarlee we ventured on to Burra where we refuelled and had coffee to rejuvenate for our ride onto Peterborough. After refuelling in Peterborough we called in to the Motorcycle Museum where there was some incredible old bikes most of them we had never heard of before. Ian and his wife, the owners of the museum, cooked up a lovely BBQ lunch for everyone. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.


A few of our riders headed back to Adelaide and the rest of us continued on to Melrose. We arrived there at about 3pm. Picked up our cabin keys from the hotel and spent the afternoon exploring, some went off on the their bikes others walking the trails.

We all got together at the local hotel for tea at 6pm. A nice meal and a few drinks were enjoyed.

After tea we went back to our cabins. Lit a bon fire sat around and had a chat and a few jokes.

Sunday morning we all pitched in and cooked bacon and eggs on the barbie for breakfast. Mr and Mrs Strath and Fred C went with Kay geo caching and nearly missed breakfast. But said it was well worth the effort.

We packed up and left Melrose around 10am and headed off to Clare where we stopped for lunch. After lunch we continued on to Gawler where we finished the ride. It was a great weekend with a great bunch of people.

I’d like to thank everyone for coming.
