The Winter Rally certainly lived up to its name…
Feature by LOAF
IN THE LEAD up to the Winter Rally this year the temperatures dropped sharply only a few days before, and it was obvious it would be very cold indeed, which meant that some additional clothing and blankets were packed onto Saffire for the weekend away.
The sky was clear and the sun out for a cold ride down, but thanks to the hand warmers stuffed inside my jacket and the heavy winter gloves I was wearing, it wasn’t too bad plus breaking the journey at Marulan for fuel worked well.
With a full tank of fuel it was back on the road to the rally but with a stop at the Nerriga pub first for a good meal and a couple of beers while catching up with mates among the crowd of riders who all had the same idea. The bar was jam packed with thirsty and cold motorcyclists all wanting to warm up with a cold beer. Yeah I know it doesn’t make sense but it seems to work anyway…
