Did a ride back in 1984.
We went to the Oran Park Swan series race.
Thought why not go the the next one at Surfers Paradise.
Great ride 5 guys just went and did it, not much preparation.
Thought we would do the last at Calder Park.
Yep 6 seasons in one day, sunburn,cold, wind, cold sunshine.
Hey Victoria, racing great.
Leave and not sure where to stay, had a tent.
Saw a industrial park in Melton with a half build shed in it.
Perfect, mate rode into a foundation ditch on the way in.
Tent up feeling good as out of wind and weather.
Freaking wind, pick up and all we heard was the bolts popping out of the shed.
#k out of there, and into a park in a picnic shelter.
Coppers go by but didn't do anything as we were just trying to get some sleep.
Woke up 2.30am in the morning, mate cooking bake beans on the hot plate.
Really, then I thought I didn't have a drink of water nearly all day.
Only tap I could find was the park one with no handle.
Trying to find a shop open and remember bottle water was not the big thing back then was nearly impossible.
Found a pizza shop open thank god.
It was more laid back, no work out this work out that, we just went and what ever happened, happened.
Still a bit like that, good times in a time.
PS on a Yamaha XV 750, great bike
Found photo, no that's not me.
