    Rumour has it, started by a fellow "un-mentioned " inmate :D about the frequent organised rides to see the gorgeous "bakery assistants" at Truro, apparently by all reports they are :sweeti & have some of the most visually pleasing Custard Berliners around :nod , although he keeps that secret to himself :D .

    To put us off the trail, we also received this ..... :lol3



    Well, a few of us "southern riders" CharlieW, KymW, GrahamG & myself didn't take the bait and met near the bottom Norton Summit for a short early morning squirt through the cool morning scented air of the Mount Lofty Ranges to Truro via ....... ........ a Birdwood bakery of course :wink:

    ........ some 200 + kms of smiles :ricky upon smiles :ricky later, we made it to Truro.

    continuing ........

    Regrouping occasionally to share our thrills

    [​IMG]

    Before someone mentioned THE WORD ...................... 'Bakery' ' :rofl and they were off in a flash :pynd

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I hadn't noticed the Blues Brothers before :lol3

    [​IMG]

    We weren't the only ones bannished outside

    [​IMG]

    When our hunger was sated from our early morning start, the fun continued ..................... :rayof

    Continuing ..........

    We decended into the North Rhine River Valley towards our destination

    [​IMG]

    Waiting ..... waiting ..... waiting ..... no CharlieW ???????? :huh

    [​IMG]

    So a quick back track ................... with fingers crossed

    [​IMG]

    Apparently miscommunication saw him tootling down Pine Hut Road before he realised he wasn't riding in dust any more :lol3

    [​IMG]

    Relieved we stroved forward with one goal in mind :sweeti

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The heat was building & as we pulled in front of the Truro bakery, instead of the usual fabulous gluttony scent of a bakery, there was a strong woft of fuel in the air :eek1.

    Closer inspection saw fuel streaming from under KymW's Aprilia, which luckily stopped after turning off the ignition.

    Nothing was gunna stop us now, we were "on a mission from god" :evil

    [​IMG]

    AND ................... We weren't dissappointed :dg

    [​IMG]

    (now what were you guys actually thinking :ddog :lol3 )

    continuing after lunch ............

    Work was required if we were to get home

    [​IMG]

    It turned out a clip holding the injector cap had come loose and it wasn't long before we hit the trail again :rayof

    [​IMG]

    I could see CharlieW was reinvigorated by the speed he was entering the corner and it was going to be a pleasing moment for my camera :clap .................... one way or the other :lol3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The others not so

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Although KymW was showing good signs :rofl

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Following a ribbon of light :pynd

    continuing ..............

    We decended to the base of Mt Karina & headed south along the edge of the plains, before climbing the range up Pine Hut Road

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But not for long ............................. as power drained from the Aprilia again :baldy......................... and we thought ................... Oh no not out here :knary

    [​IMG]

    In the heat, thoughts began to filling our minds on how we would stop a bush fire out here, if the Aprilia actually went up :kboom

    [​IMG]

    We scouted the track for the biggest, shadyist, breeze filled tree ......................... many hands make light work :rofl

    [​IMG]

    Eventually the problem was solved and a B-line to the nearest pub (that being Mount Pleasant) was mapped

    [​IMG]

    However the increased power of the Aprilia had its handicap & on cresting a hill into a T-junction it finally made his day:p3rry

    Luckily damage was kept to a few scratches to his new paint job & his pride.

    Fabulous enjoyable brisk days riding guys, thanks for the company :thumb, cya again soon
