I’d heard a little about the club already, but after being told they often frequent the Schutz Landscape and Garden centre in Tomerong on the NSW South Coast, which also has a popular café, I thought I’d drop in and take a look. Turned out to be a great idea, especially considering there were so many bikes that turned up, for what soon turned into an impromptu classic bike show.
There were vintage, classic, post classic and modern rides from all corners of the globe including a few Ducatis, Moto Guzzi’s, a couple of BSA’s, a pristine Norton, some Triumphs, some very early model Yamahas, Hondas, Kawasakis and Suzukis, a very tidy 1964 Pan and even an old Ural. I soon learned they always meet here on a Saturday morning which sometimes leads to a ride with a few members, but most of the time, it’s just a great opportunity for all of them to catch up over a coffee and plan what events they’ve got coming up. Usually they host the Berry Bike Show, but of course that hasn’t been on for a couple of years now, just like many other events they often attend. That’s why regular meetings like this one are so important, just to make sure everyone’s still hanging in there during these tough and trying times.
